Something about September showing up . . . Hey Summer–enough already! We’re looking at another day here in middle Tennessee with the heat index reaching about 100 this afternoon. Good (indoor) thinking weather, I suppose.
Thanks to all of you who’ve bought the CD, the download, and/or are streaming via your preferred source for such. It is ALL positive. Y’all are downloading more, and streaming more, it seems. Whatever your mode of receiving the music, you might be interested in the PDF booklet of lyrics and liner notes from Tilt and Shine that I’ve recently made available as a free download. You can get it here:
or if you buy the record from my bandcamp site, you should be able to access it there. I’ll be putting together a “deluxe” version, with additional photos etc. sometime soon. Hey–here’s another nice review, hoo-rah:
Vinyl pre-order: Speaking of bandcamp, I’ve set up a pre-order option there for the vinyl LP edition of Tilt and Shine. Yes, the LP is still a-ways off from getting here, but the pre-order comes with an immediate download in the file format of your choice, so you can listen to it that way til the platters do arrive.
I’ll be hitting the highway again tomorrow, playing WDVX‘s “Tennessee Shines” live show in trio formation at Boyd’s Jig & Reel in Knoxville, TN, on Wednesday, September 5, from 7-8pm EST. Can’t be there? Listen in live at https://wdvx.com/listen-live/
Next week I’ll be here in Nashville for the annual Americanafest, playing an official showcase at City Winery on Friday 9/14, from 5:30-7:30pm with my pal Paul Burch and others (sponsored by the good folks from the fabulous 30-A Songwriters Festival), and otherwise running around town playing a few other shows (see the tour page for details.) Hope to see you! It’s gonna be fun. And look out Atlanta and Charlotte: we’ll be greeting you in trio formation in a couple of weeks, on 9/20-21.
Had a great time a couple of weeks ago here at the house with the fine folks from The East Nashvillian; I don’t usually associate photo shoots with fun, but it was far beyond painless. Look for a feature on yours truly coming up soon in the music issue–and there’s other interesting press forthcoming, too.
