Walking with the Ghost
Last night I had the humbling and thrilling experience of my first show playing the Ryman. Thank you Avett Brothers!!! We had the time of our lives and will never forget it! All of the shows have been great so far. Last night was our last show with the Avetts. By far, my favorite people to tour with and also, just some of my favorite people in general. Their songs are as pure and true as they are as humans. We also wanna thank our friends Brigid and Patrick Hallahan in Louisville for taking us in for the night and making us pretty much the most epic breakfast I've ever had in my live. They know how to do sausage down south lemme tell ya!
Tomorrow the band and I will play a Paste Magazine session. Four of our new songs and a cover. What to do? What to do? Perhaps an Avetts cover? Roy cover? What do you think? Maybe some Hall and Oates? Then that night we will play a show at the good ol' Earl in Atlanta. After that there are three shows left and we will be joined by our talented buddies, Hymns, Foley Stewart and Scott Liss and the 66. Atlanta, 2 nights in Charlotte (paaaarty!!) and then Rock n Roll Hotel in DC. Dont miss em, we wanna rock your face off gentlelike then hard, real haaaaard. hahaha, ew.
After that our final shows of the year before we go off to record the new record (THANK GOD!) will be played. The first on friday Nov 13th at the 92Y in Tribeca (joined by Gillian Rivers on violin!) and then Thanksgiving Eve at the Stone Pony! Those are the biggies. We are also having special gorgeous two color hand screened posters for the Stone Pony show. Make sure to get yours, only 100 made!
Its been great meeting all you guys out on the road and we wanna thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being so kind to us out on the road and enjoying the music. See ya in Atlanta!
