House Concert!! 4-25-09

Posted by on Apr 24, 2009

I am one of the fortunate few to perform at the well-reputed Lucy Nell Andrews House Concert Series.  Folk acts such as Shake Russell and Dana Cooper have performed here in the past, and I’m honored to have received the invitation to play here. The show begins at 8pm. I will play two sets, with an intermission for drinks and snacks.  I’ll also be sharing some stories behind the songs and it’ll be a place where you can ask me questions too.  When I saw Dana Cooper play, I had to know, “What kind of harmonicas do you use?”  Now I now.  Hohner Special 20’s.  There is no web site for this venue. For ticket information and directions ($12 in advance, $15 Day of Show), contact Lucy Nell Andrews at  (713) 465-9677.   Hope to see you there.  I’ve been eager to play this show for months....

April Fool’s…but you knew that.

Posted by on Apr 1, 2009

To all of the people who congratulated me for the completely fictitious achievement posted earlier today, thank you.  I’m glad you believe in the songs enough that you think 100,000 British and Japanese people would buy “Stranger” in a month.  If this little joke angered anyone, there is still time to project your anger in the form of an April Fool’s Day joke on someone else. For being a good sport, you can download Soft Spoken for free from my upcoming solo album here (no joke): Soft Spoken Tell your friends, and thank you for checking out my site.  You can find other clips and more info at  My Solo Page and Runaway Sun Page Gotcha!...

“Stranger” sells 100,000 in March

Posted by on Apr 1, 2009

I was hoping this would happen, but I never expected it to happen the first time out.  Thank you to the 100,000 people, mostly in the UK and Japan, who bought “Stranger” in March.  I just can’t believe it- one day you sit down and write a song, a few months later you record it and have it mastered, then a few months after that you release it on iTunes and market the everloving _ _ _ _ out of it, you check your email and a statement for $70,000  is staring you right in the face?  God bless the internet. $70,000 will allow me to finish the solo LP, the band’s LP http://www.runawaysun.com, book and properly market a tour, and buy a nice van for us to use.  What am I saying, we can hire a manager to book the tour!  We can fly to shows! I’m going to need some help with booking in Japan and the UK, mostly with Japan.  Please comment with any serious insights on how we should go about doing this and where we should consider playing.
