And I have a title! But more on that in a moment.
I've had some great shows this year and I've been fortunate to perform at some great venues and festivals along the way. Now that summer is slipping by, August is nearly over, and hours of sunlight begin to decay toward the long dark clouds of winter in Chicago, I'm thinking more and more each day about producing my third album. I have a large number of songs I'd like to record, and taking everything I've learned about music production in my first two albums (Missing Anchor from 2012 and Follow the River Bend from 2011), along with improved and more seasoned musicianship, should yield some better things in the finished work.
Without any further delay, I want to share the working title of my new folk album: "Fire and Steam"
It may take some time to get this one in shape as I want to make sure that this one is the best produced of anything I've yet released. And despite my focus on this new album project in the coming months, I'm sure I'll have a few shows yet this year out in the real world. And I will definitely be heading to St. Louis for the Folk Alliance regional conference in October (FARM 2013!).
Thanks for your continued support as I continue my songwriting journey! See you soon!
