After having driven ruffly 2,000 miles alone I have returned home to Nebraska! Thanks to all of you that came out to see me on tour or gave me a place to stay! On this particular journey I was able to make a drive through Yellowstone National Park and it was truly an amazing place. I highly recommend taking the time to see it if you get the chance!

The album is called “Greetings From the Road” and will be available on CD at all my upcoming concerts. Stay tuned for an announcement on when the live album will be released to the digital world (most likely sometime this summer) Until then, here’s a new song, enjoy! Thanks for your love and support.

2014, one wild ride.

Florence

“From Florence to New York City, New York down to L.A. From L.A. up to Sacramento in the matter of just 4 days.” This lyric can only start to describe my travels this year. 2014 for me has been truly one wild ride. After two European tours, tours in the USA of the midwest, southern states, and the west coast; from planes, trains, automobiles, and even a boat I have traveled many places this year. I also played over 120 concerts. Now after all this time spent on the road I am finally headed home to Nebraska for the holidays. I will perform one final show this year at Duffy’s Tavern in my hometown, Lincoln, Nebraska on December 28th with fellow folkers Bonehart Flannigan and Brad Hoshaw. Then I will be starting work on compiling a live album from over 70 live recordings I did while on tour this year. More details coming next year about said live album. Have a Happy Holidays guys! Thanks for all your love and support this year!  Looking forward to 2015~
