New Radio Show! New Year! New Adventures! 

2018 has snuck up on us, and brought extreme cold (at least for us and what we're used to!).  Freezing temps are not the norm for our winter vibes.

This past year felt full of starts and stalls.  So many dreams and ideas we ponder and come up with...just seem to evaporate almost out of the starting gate.  I'll admit, it's difficult sometimes to be both the creator and the manager and activator/motivator.  And sometimes, it's just not the right time yet for an idea to fully manifest.  So with patience and…

Gratitude Season 

The year is winding down, and the retail world is winding up.
We're winding inward...this time of year for us is about gratitude, reflection and pondering/pausing. 
Taking stock of the year that's gone by, and visualizing what's in store for the year ahead.

We're still writing,  and still visualizing the upcoming records...the path is still foggy for the how/when details.  No worry, no hurry.

A few upcoming shows are on the books, and as always, we're delighted to be invited for your house concert…

Playing Catch Up 

The last couple of months we've been playing catch up.  The time has flown by, and yet in certain ways, we're feeling like we haven't done very much.  That's the challenge and the balance as an artist; to keep the wheels spinning, the engine running, the canvas creating, the shows playing, all while trying to make rent. 

We're doing the best we can with what we've got.  I know you all are in the same boat in your own way, and probably feel like your time is stacked...like every minute of the day is…

New Video, Tourland and Upcoming shows 

We've uploaded a new video to the website and YouTube!  It's from last July, when we celebrated with my mother, Melanie, for her birthday in Dallas.  It was such a joy to have her on the stage with us, and sing one of our favorites, Long Black Veil (a well-known country ballad from 1959, written by Danny Dill and Marijohn Wilkin and originally recorded by Lefty Frizzell.)  Check out Melanie's amazing harmonies!  Click here.

Upcoming shows:
Mondays - April 17th and 24th - 8-11pm at Sidney's Saloon - 1200 St…Read more

Adventures in Spring and Summer planning - NM and UK! 

Oh wow, spring is my favorite time to be in New Orleans.  Everything is budding, blooming, and the music and fest scene here gets extra vibrant.
Coming up locally, we've got more daytime/farmers market shows for you to enjoy.  Early gigs plus the happy benefit of eating local!  I know many of you are early birds like ourselves, and staying out past ten o'clock at night is a feat.
This Sunday, we've got Brunch in the Garden at Hollygrove Market and Farm.  We'll be strumming for you from 10am-11:30am while you…Read more
