Well, we’re in it now. Heat waves, cold beverages, goofy hats, and vacation time all combine to create the best time for music all year. And let me tell you, have we got some music coming up…
Summer US Tour
This past Saturday July 28th we kicked off our 2012 Summer US Tour at the Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge MA. After three sold out shows upstairs, we moved on up (or down) and played one of the most legendary rooms in the Boston area!! The show was totally rockin and we were joined by our friends in the amazing Ross Livermore Band. A great night all around, and a great way to kick off the tour.
We then conclude the tour back in Northampton MA on Thursday August 9th, at the Northampton Summer Concert Series. This series is bringing FREE outdoor music back to Downtown Northampton on Thursdays, and might just be co-produced by my company (The Collective Music Group). We’ll be joined on stage by our other amazing friends Kingsley Flood (voted Boston’s Best Live Band of 2011), and did I mention that it’s free? 6pm-8pm.
In between, we’ll be romping all around the midwest and southeast, so check out the dates below, and hopefully we’ll see you out there!!

A Couple Cool Tidbits
In June IMR Magazine reviewed over 3,200 submissions and named us the #3 Indie Acoustic artist of 2012!! Click there for the full review.
The new album Navigation has also been receiving some significant radio play in Europe, including multiple spins on BBC Radio Ireland. So for any fans across the pond, keep your ears out!!

Well, that’s it for now folks! I look forward to seeing many of you on the road in the coming months, and in the meantime, I’ll leave you with this new video of Rhees and I performing “Rosalita” acoustic at the Stanford University Studios!
With love, rock, and gratitude,
