Ditty TV & Waller’s

Hello, folks. Been having a blast at the recent shows. Look out for my New South Showcase show to air on Athens’ WUGA 91.7fm in the coming months.

A quick note:
Tonight, (now, actually) Ditty TV is including the “Holding Pattern” video on its show “The Curve”. Check out Ditty TV now (or any time) here!

In more somber news, due to a loss and funeral in the family, I’ve had to cancel my part in this Friday night’s (May 3) songwriters in-the-round show at Waller’s in Decatur. Jason Waller himself will be sitting in alongside Alabama heavyweights Taylor Hollingsworth and Brad Armstrong. Go check it out, tell ’em I said hey, and enjoy a fine night of songs & stories.

All the best,

Video Premiere- “Holding Pattern”

Many thanks to Americana Highways for premiering the video for “Holding Pattern” today. The mighty Jeff Shipman directed and photographed the video and Greg Brown was the drone pilot. And as always, much gratitude to producer/engineer and musician Bronson Tew of Dial Back Sound and all the players on this song and throughout the record. Check it out and enjoy the gorgeous shots of the Mississippi Delta and Water Valley!
