Happy New Year 2018! The band and I have been so busy already. I welcome some wonderful new members to my band; Jeremy Lyons, Papa Bear, Mike Pinette and Will Lawrence, who have come on board to join the amazing Patzner brother’s… Graham, Anton & Lewis. We are having a blast making some great music. We did our annual benefit concert December 7th to a sold out crowd. Please SAVE THE DATE for NOVEMBER 29th 2018, which will be my 10th year of doing this concert. We have fed over 3.5 million people at this point with your support…so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
We have already been in the studio recording my record ST. MARY’S, which will be released some time mid-year with a big CD release show that we will plan. The record is about growing up in Detroit, so the photo shoot for the cover will all happen there. My dear friend and photographer, Danielle Rubi-Dentzel, will experience winter Detroit style!
The band and I have plans for a benefit concert to promote my record LOOKING BACK, which was recorded last spring with the talented Billy Shaddox and Graham Patzner. It was recorded in memory of my good friend Paul Tyler and will be the 2nd record with all proceeds going to the NOAH TYLER COLLEGE FUND. Please click here to buy your CD, download or LP with download card included.
I will spend a couple of weeks on The Big Island of Hawaii and a week in Tucson this winter, writing and spending some quiet time before we go back into the studio in April. I’ll go back to Maui in May. Look for information regarding BAY AREA shows that will happen before the end of summer. Fall will start with a trip to Atlanta, followed by my annual trip to Paris (with the intent to arrange our 2019 concert in Paris), and then we will get ready for our November 29th show at 142 Throckmorton. Please do what you can to be at this show. It will be a very special 10th anniversary evening with lots of surprises.
I look forward to updating Notes from Michelle as new events come up.
Again, Happy New Year and hope to see you at some of our shows.
