So guys… There’s a lot changing in my world right now. I am taking the day off-ish to rest because I am freakin’ exhausted today.
LIVE VIDEO FROM THE YELLOW ROOM IN PORTLAND
But first things first! Big thanks to the guys at Live From The Yellow Room for letting me be a part of their video project! I got up bright at early to film this video with my good friend, Peter Rodocker (a musician I met in Nashville, whom I had mutual friends with from Fresno, CA). He has always been a super encouraging and kind person for the year that I have known him and has been a great friend to get to know as we have both moved to Portland. He’s also helping out with the post production and bits of recording that we still have to get done for the new album to be ready. Anyhow, we got together with about 7 other artists and bands and recorded these videos. I made some good friends and also made a good friend in Namoi Hooley, a fantastic songwriter who likes to channel the 1970′s and who we recorded some piano with for the song Without A Sound yesterday. I am looking forward to getting to know both of these people better and having them be a part of my life. But for now, here is my video with Peter and the guys from Live From The Yellow Room. You can also view more of the videos that they have filmed with other artists. Naomi Hooley’s video will be up in the next week and there are tons of amazing Portland artists, including some of the bands that Peter works with on a regular basis being showcased. This is a truly incredible music scene. And the Live At The Yellow Room videos only capture a part of what’s going on here. Check it out
For some reason I'm not allowed to post this video... so here's the link. :-)
BY THE WAY… IF YOU “SHARE” THIS VIDEO ON FACEBOOK I WILL MESSAGE YOU A FREE SONG DOWNLOAD FOR HELPING ME TO GET THE WORD OUT ABOUT THESE VIDEOS!!! Just make sure you link me in the message I really appreciate your support guys
Other news! Well, there are all kinds of shows coming up as I am going to be on tour soon. But highlights are this Tuesday I am playing at the Hawthorne Theater Lounge with the glorious Rich West Blatt, whom I had the pleasure of recording some background vocals for about 2 weeks ago. I am looking forward to seeing how the song turns out. But in the mean time you should head over to the show next Tuesday if you find yourself in Portland.
The tour that starts in less than a week and a half (I am not ready. I can hardly believe it’s coming up so fast.) I am excited about it. And there are some really fun shows on the lineup to be excited about.

THE SOMA HOLIDAYS REUNION SHOW AT AUDIE’S OLYMPIC IN FRESNO, CA MARCH 30TH!
I have to leave town for a Soma Holidays reunion show that I am really excited about in Fresno, CA. There’s not a poster for it yet, that I’ve seen but you can grab tickets for the event at http://www.ticketfly.com/event/85769/ and read about the bands if you don’t know much about them. They were one of my favorite bands about 6 years ago and Ben is probably one of my biggest influences. Eli Reyes also used to drum for me about 5 years ago and occasionally they both join me for full band sets in Fresno. You’ll have to come to see what tricks we have up our sleeves.
2 SHOWS AT VINO VIXENS IN PORTLAND, OR ON APRIL 7TH & 8TH!!!
Ultimately, Portland, OR will be my last round of shows for this tour with two shows in a row at Vino Vixens on April 7th and 8th.
