Rediscovering the e-bass at The Festy IV
Motivation and inspiration hit hard sometimes. The last few weeks have added so much fuel to the fire that it can barely be contained. I'm charging ahead with my solo project with a planned release date sometime in January, Sunliner's decided to cut a 45 or a single (two sides) this week or the next and the final session for the upcoming Stringdusters album less than three weeks away (and I've been charged with the task of writing another song for that session).
Post Festy, pre Holiday Tour was intended to be downtime but it's quickly become as busy as any other time of the year. It's not only recording, Sarah and I are doing a few duo shows in Asheville, Roanoke and Ashland and I'm playing with her on her mini-tour in support of the re-release of her epic album Covered (see earlier blog post for more on that) in Boston and New York City. Solo shows take a back seat this fall but January is going to be busy around the record release. More on that later.
