JANUARY 2019

There are some major plans in the works. I will be making trips to Los Angeles, Memphis and Nashville, to work with and for a few artists and writers there soon. Our summer band schedule is really heating up and it's become so busy that I've had to turn down a lot of studio projects and it put me behind on a few others. So, these detours and delays have pushed the release of my new EP titled, "Sleight of Hand", ahead to later summer/early fall.  I'm looking so forward to returning to Los Angeles for the Grammys next year. Also, I will be doing quite a bit of gigging this year with the band. It looks to be an exciting year and as always, and I most certainly wish all of you much happiness and future success !  ==============================================================================================
