Hi there friends, 

Greetings from wonderful wonderful Copenhagen here in Denmark. I'm on the final leg of the Light of Day tour and it's been a lot of fun. Great to hang with Anthony D'Amato, Guy Davis, Joe D'Urso, Steve Conte and the gang. It's been an honor to be a part of this wonderful tour. Once it finishes I'm going to do a week or so of solo shows in Italy to promote the Italian release of The Green, then back to the UK for Christmas! 

I'm still knocked out from hearing that I have three co-writes on the new Waterboys album, Modern Blues, including the first single "November Tale". I've been a lifelong fan of Mike Scott and his band so it's quite a thing for me. The record is out on January 19th, 2015 and can be pre-ordered here

The Green is still available for pre-order and immediate digital download. Hard copies will be available in early 2015 for Pledgers, with the U.S. release date TBD. I think it's my finest collection of songs and I'm incredibly proud of it. I hope you like it as much as I do!! 

Now on to New Year's Eve; we will be in Blairstown, NJ at the Historic Blairstown Theater for dinner, drinks, revelry, and two sets of music, so get your tickets now and join us for an historic gig of epic proportions!!!!! There are some tickets left but better get them while the getting's good!
