Super excited to be a part of To The Front Fest in Lexington, KY which is focused on “creating a platform for the inclusion and visibility of marginalized identities within the arts community.”
Jake Hellman approached me some time ago about co-writing some country songs, two things I hadn’t really done before. We had a lot of fun working together and formed a band for one show.
Thanks to Billy Lease, Austin Hellman, and Nick Hall for accompanying us, to Jeff Jobson for bootlegging the set, to Dave Chale at Dead Bird Studios for mastering it, and to Jake Miller for the artwork.
We can officially spill the beans! My band is playing Poorcastle Festival which falls the weekend of the 4th of July this year!
Lead guitarist Mark Hamilton, bassist Josh Johnson, and I are playing with Zack Kennedy on drums now, if you haven’t heard.
More details TBA.
I composed the acapella piece for the title track of “The Dance” and voiced other poems which were produced by The Glass Eye Ensemble as part of their multimedia art installation which you can check out tonight at Tim Faulkner Gallery.
Doors at 6p, a brief live performance by me/Mark Hamilton and Ron Whitehead/Jae Grady at 8p. No cover.
Next Tuesday, Jake Hellman and I debut our little country side project, Carl Jacob and Sheri Lynn.
