Tal National have signed to FatCat Records for worldwide release of their upcoming album “Kaani”….
I’m really excited that they will have this exposure and I can’t think of a more deserving band to be given an opportunity to win over new fans and open new doors. If you want to keep up to date with Tal National you can check out their Facebook page:
On my way to Vermont to record Bandleader’s debut album in the cabin pictured above. Should be some interesting challenges ahead, but I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on the songs and taking them to the next level. Hoping the snow has cleared enough to pitch a tent. More soon!
I just returned home from a two week tour with Judson Claiborne. We went down to Austin then made our way back through the midwest. Two weeks full of interesting people and awesome situations. Here’s a video from a last minute show we played in Springfield, IL.
I’m down in Austin with Judson Claiborne at SXSW this week. The photo is from a show on Wednesday, we’re playing two shows today downtown, then off for a short midwest tour.
Quentin and I went on our second annual road trip, once again West from Chicago. This time it was a little earlier in the year, and we went more south than last year. Blazing through IL and IA, and two nights in NE. Second night was at Buffalo Bill’s Ranch State Park, which was my first experience camping in the snow. It was a much needed primer for the next night at Wolford Mountain Resevoir in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, CO. What an amazing night straddling/humping a camp fire to keep warm, drinking scotch and wondering about the properties of snow. Those two nights camping in the freezing cold and snow have changed my life, and I can’t wait to get back out there. We ended in Salt Lake City, not as weird as I expected, but I didn’t even see the lake! Of course we had to swing by the Starved Rock Lodge on our way out of town, saw three eagles on this trip.
Christmas time at Starved Rock! We spent a couple nights at the Lodge and it was a lot of fun. The walks during the day were awesome and the nights in the lodge were exactly what you’d think they’d be like.
For Miranda’s birthday we went to Starved Rock State Park outside of Chicago and stayed in the Fort St Louis cabin. Had some good sightings of a hungry raccoon, fat squirrels and friendly deer. Although we heard an owl, we couldn’t track it down.
Halloween came and we were prepared - for once! Dentists can thank us. Sorry to the kids for the nightmares, we tried to keep it tame.
