Hey, I’m in a music video! Thanks to Among the Breakers for including me in their recent video for their first single “Prisoners!”
As the summer kicks off, gigs are started to pile up! One gig I’m particularly looking forward to playing at Roy Vogt’s Annual Thunder Row Bass Invitational, coming up next month in July! You can read more about that here! I will also be playing with Antsy McClain and the Trailer Park Troubadours for several shows at his residency at Douglas Corner Cafe this summer! Finally, I’ll be traveling down to south Alabama to play with Among the Breakers next month as well! You can check out the confirmed dates in Gigs page; there are more to come soon!
I had a great time serving at my church, Fellowship Bible Church Brentwood this past weekend! We did an acoustic Christmas worship set with myself on upright bass. I a lot of music snobs turn their noses up at Christmas music, but I always enjoy playing it each year. Christmas music is probably the most harmonically and melodically sophisticated music most people will listen to all year.
I’m in the process of rebuilding my website, so it may take a few days for it to get back to normal.
