Horseshoes & Hand Grenades…It’s Out!!!

It has been a very exciting week of New Album Release-related stuff. I can’t believe all the great feedback and reviews. Thank you everyone who took the time to send a message, repost or retweet about the album and share the videos and the links. I posted this on Facebook a few days ago but thought I would put it up here as well in case anyone missed it. Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart…

If you’ve been hanging around here awhile, you know how much work went in to the pre-order campaigns for the last two albums, “Ours” and “Stars, Exploding”. For the first time in my whole life, I had some help in the form of a label when it came to recording. That label is Xtra Mile. For the first time in my life, I’m a little nervous…Whereas in the past, we have (you people on here and myself) collectively financed the recording process, Xtra Mile took a gamble on me and now it’s up to us to show them they made the right decision. I hope to keep working with them for a long time, and the only way to ensure that is if you guys buy this thing. So please, if you feel the urge or ever wanted to help, buy this album! Buy multiple copies and give them to people even haha. Share the songs, share the links and videos and keep being the team players you’ve been for me since day one. Now is not the time to take it easy. We gotta work harder than ever. Cause it’s not just us anymore…there’s a whole family involved. Help us help one another, and please, keep buying music.
Thank you.

Tour Dates in UK + North American Tour with Billy Bragg + New Single

Soooo…

This is a big one for me. If you ever told me I would be going on tour with Billy Bragg I would never believe you. But…here it is. I’m a huge fan and have been for a long, long time. Also excited to see UK fans and friends again so soon after the tour with Chuck Ragan and Northcote. For more information click here.
