Happy New Year
Happy New Year everyone! The beginning of 2009 is showing promising signs of good things ahead. The recording sessions at Hanover Music are well under way and we've laid down 10 acoustic tracks and are starting to add some layers to a few songs as well. I'm lucky to have had the pleasure of collaborating with some of the best talent in Richmond so far on some of these tunes and will continue working with some of them moving forward with this project. More on this in the coming weeks…
On the live front, I've been doing a bunch of solo and duo (w/Mike Jarvis on lap steel, piano, guitar, bass) performances which has given me an opportunity to experience some of these tunes in a more stripped down fashion. I recently performed a showcase in DC with some singer-songwriters (organized by Justin Trawick -www.myspace.com/justintrawick) from around the region that went really well. Other artists who played included Laura Brino – Annapolis, Molly Hagen - DC, Derek James – NYC, Victoria Vox – Baltimore, Rene Moffatt – DC, Jason Ager – Philly, Laura Tsaggaris – DC, Justin Trawick – Arlington. We're in the beginning stages of planning a series of these shows between Richmond and Boston . Stay tuned for more information on this showcase series.
On the band front, Jubeus will be doing a show at The Capital Ale House Music Hall in downtown Richmond on January 31 st with our friends Electric Chameleon from Roanoke . Get your tickets now at www.capitalalehouse.com . We've also been added to the bill for the 3 rd annual Camp Barefoot where we'll perform with some national favorites including Lotus, Perpetual Groove, Toubab Krewe, The Itals, and The Hackensaw Boys. Ticketing information will be available soon. Check out www.myspace.com/jubeus for additional Jubeus shows.
