Greetings! I’m back to my homebase after a trip around the world. I don’t know quite why I’ve kept my travel stories so shrouded in secrecy… I suppose I needed the time to reflect and to explore on my own. But for anyone who is interested in what I’ve been up to, here’s a brief recap.
Two months in India (you can read about that in the past blog entries). One month in Mexico, dodging blizzards, touring the country and making new friends and musical compatriots. 1 1/2 weeks in California. Showing off the old stomping grounds to drummer extraordinaire and my partner in crime Conor Elmes, before we embark on a 3 week trip across the country. Highlights: Los Angeles, the Grand Canyon, Santa Fe, New Orleans, all the strange little towns and truck stops along the way, and the culmination up in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom. Did we bring a camera? No. Even after all the pressure from our families and friends. But that’s how we roll, I suppose. Here’s one off my 1.3 Megapixel flip phone though.
Before I leave again to journey ’round the world, please come to experience my new tunes, conceived in India, performed in Mexico and California, and ready to be debuted on the East Coast! Join us at:
