Fat Bean Show Thanks!

I just want to give a quick thanks to everyone who checked out my show at Fat Bean a few weeks ago, with Peter Frederiksen, Daniel Hautamaki, and Matt Schweinberg! We had an awesome time playing, and we even made a few new friends! Thanks to Billy of Dashney for running sound for us, and thanks to Tom of Screaming Beaver for promoting the show.

I've just finished pre-production on the few new songs, which means I'm ready to record a few in the studio. It looks like I'll be doing work on my next album in sections. I feel like my songs, musically speaking, really stretch into different genres, which makes them difficult to record with the same producer, etc. (unless, of course, it's me).

I'm also really excited about the prospect of working with a songwriter/producer in Nashville. His name is Jeremy Casella, and we've been communicating a bit by phone and email, talking about the possibility of recording some of my more "David Gray-esque" songs. Very exciting.

As for some of the other songs, I'm trying to hook up with an old buddy of mine who works out of Villa Park, running a studio, producing, and engineering.
