Update - Up To Date!

Hey everybody - So I'm sitting at home with a fever, nursing a nasty headache, and I figured that was as good of a time as any to throw a big old update your way.

1st of all - if you've missed them so far, I urge you to check out the Music Means Family Skyline Sessions - we take a bit of time before various house shows to film 1 song sessions, and I'm really proud of how the first three turned out. It truly is amazing how talented these folks are. So, take a look at the 1st three sessions, with Courtney Marie Andrews, Field Report, and Hip Hatchet.

We'll have a couple more coming your way, after our next few house shows. Which you should come to. They're next week. And they'll be awesome.

On November 11th, we have a special evening with Vikesh Kapoor. Vikesh is a stunning songwriter, and wowed a couple thousand of us earlier this year at Timber! Watch this video - then go to the event page, then RSVP, then come.

I really do hope I get to see some of you at one of these shows. They really are special occasions.

Last, but not least, Caroline Smith is playing at The Hideout this Friday. You'd be crazy not to go. She just did an awesome session with the great guys over at Audiotree - check it out, and come hang out on Friday night.

See you soon, I hope!

 

A Little Too Busy

Hey everybody - sorry for the infrequency of the updates. I've been traveling for work, and working on getting house shows set up, and seeing shows, and biting off maybe just a bit more than I can chew. There are worse things, right?

Anyway, I wanted to drop by and post a few things that have been keeping me sane while I wait for the leaves to change (don't worry - a fall mix is brewing)! Let's jump right in:

I'm in love with the new album from Luray - the project of Shannon Carey, who is the sister of Sean Carey (of Bon Iver). She strings together soaring melodies, soothing banjo, and copious layers to create a fantastic fall soundtrack. This has been on many mornings for me as of late. Here's a beautiful single take video of the title track 'The WIlder'. Go get this album folks.

Also, Caroline Smith's new album will find its way to your ears shortly. I can't say enough about Caroline's talent - and this album will most certainly deliver. Sharing this one again - make sure to grab this on 10/8.

Nathaniel Rateliff's new album is absolutely breathtaking - and it's a wonder for the beginnings of autumn, Enjoy this video, and then go grab it.
