Happy Thanksgiving! And thank you for existing!
“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” – G.K. Chesterton
I’ve been loving being in Nashville. One of the lucky things that has happened to me so far is that I met my friends Jeremy and Gavin. They host a concert series in their (gorgeous!) home. I played there on Nov. 2.
Perk of the show? Besides the great company, the whole show is recorded and filmed. Here’s one of the first cuts from the night. It’s a silly little song called Summer Skin. More to come soon.
Many thanks to Jeremy, Gavin, Chrissy Marie, Brandon, and all the folks who attended!
Love and thanks,
We’ve had an amazing journey in the last few days. Thank you to everyone who came out to see us, host us, feed us, listen, love and help us in so many ways. Thanks to Luis Rodriguez, Max Palmer, and Phil Venable for being the best road buddies anyone could ask for. And thanks to everyone who is sending thoughts and prayers to Brett Hart for a quick recovery from back surgery!

Do please come say hello, and if you’ve got local friends please help us spread the word! Many thanks.
Last week took us to Roanoke, Fredericksburg, and Washington DC. It was so much fun (and so much delicious… barbecue, korean, soul food?!). Rarely have I spent a 5-hour car ride thinking about how much I love my job. To be honest, I was also thinking about how the entire band probably shouldn’t have ordered kim chi at the beginning of the drive. But that was secondary.
Ben Bonin of No Depression reviewed our show at Hill Country Barbecue DC. Check out what he has to say here, then come out and see for yourself! I’ll give you a hint… we might start calling Luis “monster chops”.
This week we’ll be playing two sets at Shakori Hills – 9:30 Friday night (4/19) on the Grove Stage, followed by a 2:30 p.m. Meadow Stage set on Saturday 4/20. Also on Saturday 4/20, we’ll play a free 11 p.m. show for Hillsborough Street Live and Local at the Keg in Downtown Raleigh, NC.
Thank you to everyone who came out to see us play last week. We love doing what we do, and we are immensely and perpetually grateful to you for making it possible.
