New Year, New Album, New Tour!

Hello friends.

It’s a new year!  I have a new album!  I am packing up my backpack & guitar at this very moment to begin what will be a 3 month long tour across the U.S. & Europe.  It’s an exciting time for me.  I will be playing shows from Chicago to NYC, then in Germany, Switzerland, & Finland.  Check the “tour dates” section to see if I will be coming to a city near you.  If you don’t see your city on the list you can always write to me and a house concert can be arranged at your place.  I hope the new year brings good things for you.  Check out the new album “7” above, out now on Sower Records.  Enjoy & see you on the road!

I have completed my seventh studio album as a solo artist, thus the name of the new album is “7”. I am thankful to share the new music with you next year! It has been a wonderful journey so far putting out albums and touring internationally. I am excited for what the next chapter will bring.

In the beginning of the new year I will embark on a journey playing concerts from Chicago area to NYC, then on to Europe. Check the “tour dates” section to see if I will be coming to a city near you. I will be visiting Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden, and possibly Ireland and England too. To those of you in Europe I look forward to seeing you next year!
