I hope you are all doing well and adjusting to our new way of life. Community is so important and my wish for you is that you are able to see your family, friends and spend good time with them. It’s been a long time for some of us. It also feels great to be able to travel again. Masks are easy to wear and really makes the difference between all of us taking care of each other.
I was finally back in my studio in April recording my new record “Opened Letters”. It was fantastic to be back at Pine Mountain Studio after it had a nice clean up during our break. My long-time Studio Technical Engineer, Steve Veillux, did a full overhaul and got everything tuned up and ready to go. “Opened Letters” is out now on all platforms. As always, 100% of all proceeds of all my music is donated to Little Wishes.
I was in Paris in March/April, and am at the airport as I write this, ready to get on the plane to go again. Paris is a place that I feel most like myself and I am always so grateful to be back with my friends there. I spent time in Montreal in July at a dear friend’s wedding. Being the birthplace of my Grandparent’s & Mom made it extra special. All of my best childhood memories came flooding back. The sights, the sounds of summer and the French Canadien food & music, filled my heart. I will pack my guitar to go to the Big Island of Hawaii in October and spend time working on a new project. Back to Munich & Paris through mid-December, and then home for the holidays. I am so sorry that we will be be postponing our Little Wishes Benefit Concert at The Throckmorton Theatre, but please mark you calendars for December 7, 2023. we all miss this concert so much. Please do what you can to help Little Wishes in the meantime. They do such good work.
I have spent quite a bit of time at Stinson Beach working on a very special acoustic project with my friend, Trevor Bahnson. He is such a magical person as well as being an incredible musician and songwriter. Go to YouTube to hear my favorite Trevor song, and check out the documentary about him on Apple. Through all his health challenges comes some of the most beautiful and profound music I know. And please follow him on Facebook and Instagram. He occasionally does special shows on Facebook.
For now, I wish you a fantastic & fruitful remainder of the year. Time is blasting by so quickly so please enjoy each day and do what you love. I’ll be in touch when there’s there’s more news, but for now…
