Back on Tour
Friday, January 25, 2013
The end is nigh, though it's only my sabbatical that's ending - so relax, no need for repentance (at least on this account!).
In February and March I'll be back in the US for a series of shows in the East (MA, CT, NY, NJ, PA, VA, NC, TN, GA, FL). We'll be playing a fair amount of new material (in addition to a selection of the tried and true). The band configurations for these gigs (especially in the North East) will vary somewhat, though always drawing from the same herd of cats: Lincoln Schliefer (bass), Marc Shulman (electric guitar), Joe Bonadio (percussion), and Clifford Carter (piano). If you'd like to know who I'll be bringing along on any particular night, please click on the "more info" link for that show.
Now the hard part…. The new record will not be available at these shows. Judging by the tone of recent emails, which range from hopeful, gently admonishing, and even downright homicidal (in a good way!), I know that some of you are growing slightly restless. I take this as a sign of affection, which I'll try to reciprocate by making a good record. FYI, during this upcoming tour, we will be experimenting with a few of the songs that have never been performed live, hoping that they gain some definition in performance.
But speaking of records, I never really got a chance to do any US tour support for 13 Songs You May or May Not Have Heard Before, although it did make the rounds in the UK (where it recently received a nice bump from the Telegraph UK).
See you out there somewhere,
