A lot to report. 1) I'm going on my first full band tour in awhile to promote the upcoming new album. I'll be as far north as Minnesota and south as Houston. A few new dates are still coming in so stay tuned for info. Here's what comes to mind when i think of the cities I'm playing this fall:
Kansas City- Bonner Springs w/ Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Maroon 5, Counting Crows
Urbana/ Champagne, IL- wild show w/ Better Than Ezra at The Canopy club.
Milwaukee- getting Lost at the Rave club minutes before the show...very Spinal Tap
Columbus- O.A.R & Counting Crows shows
Ann Arbor- Opening for Matt Nathanson. Watching Pres Bush and John Kerry debate backstage...very rock n roll.
Grand Rapids- random girl trying to get on 'Needtobreathe' bus to use the bathroom. She really had to go
Minneapolis- writing 'Don't Give Up On Me' w/ Dan Wilson
2) On a side note, I wrote a song w/ Tommy Walter called Rise Together for the Oklahoma City Thunder basketball team that you will hopefully hear a lot of this season. More info to come!
