(photo by rambo photography) There are no more shows on my books this year. Thank you to everyone who came out to one of the hundred-fifty-plus shows this year, spent their hard-earned cash on a record, shared my songs, felt something when they heard them, helped me when I was down, assisted me in spreading my words, and provided me shelter from the storm. "Far Cries and Close Calls" couldn't have happened without you, and I am happy that it means something to you. This rag-tag, rough-around-the-edges person hasn't forgotten a thing. Thanks for blessing my heart with the sound of music and warmth of your humanity in the coldest of days. A new record and an EP is coming, along with some other special news. Thanks for giving a damn, really. It's my true reward, and I mean it with every fiber of my heart, soul, and head. See you in 2017, my friends and compatriots fighting the same fight. We are all healing wounds, searching for a light, and aiming for something higher, whether we believe in ourselves or not. Find some strength in someone and some thing, and stay warm this winter, and when you come off of your mountain, show some patience and kindness if you can. thank you for you and everything that you are in this world.
love forever and always,
