Poorcastle Festival 2019

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.



Thanks to Slugger City Sound for their preview:

“The Dance” Album Release and Opening

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.

Thanks to sonaBLAST! Records and Howard and Nancy Bruner-Wilson for supporting this release. You can stream the audio on major sites.



“I’ll Be Free”

My friend Jake Hellman (Prayer Line) and I started co-writing on a quirky country side-project called Carl Jacob and Sheri Lynn (which is more or less our real names). Louisville is for Lovers released our first single today about getting dumped by text, and we sure hope you like it.

You can buy it locally at Guestroom Records, Matt Anthony Record Store, or order online at Bandcamp.


Carl Jacob and Sheri Lynn

Jake Hellman and I co-wrote a quirky country song as Carl Jacob and Sheri Lynn (pretty much our real names) about getting dumped by text. It’s now streaming on the Louisville is for Lovers comp ahead of the 2/1 release of the CD. Anthony Olympia played slide guitar on this track.

Thanks to John King for putting this all together and LEO Weekly for debuting this. Listen here.

Louisville is for Lovers

I co-wrote a quirky country song about love and breaking up in the digital age under the pseudonym Carl Jacob and Sheri Lynn. It will appear on the 2019 Louisville is for Lovers comp which is set for release Friday, February 1st. Pre-order available now. The CD will come with one of four covers designed by artists at StudioWorks, a local arts program for artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities
