Big news, I've decided to leave Colorado.
In the 7 months since the release of "oh oh", my music career has grown exponentially. Between concerts, film/tv and album sales, I'm now able to shift my focus entirely to touring and recording full time. Over the coming winter I'll start working a new album to be released on sonaBLAST records sometime next year, and am moving to Louisville Kentucky to work and tour out of sonaBLAST's HQ.
I've truly loved the time I spent in Colorado and feel so fortunate to have gotten to make music and learn from so many wonderful, creative people. I want to express my deepest thanks to everyone who has supported me, whether by coming to a show, donating to my kickstarter, taking some lessons or just sharing some insightful conversation.
I will be back for many colorado shows in the future, but there are two big chances to see me play before I leave at the end of October:
Thursday August 30th I have the very large honor of opening for the legend, John Hiatt at Chautauqua auditorium in Boulder.
Saturday October 13th I'll be having my official farewell show at the Hi-Dive in Denver. Click HERE for ticket information.
I hope you can join me for my sendoff show October 13th so I can thank you in person. Stay in touch, KJ.
I was invited to play at a tribute concert and film premiere for Elliott Smith a few weeks back. Elliott was a huge inspiration to me, and this song in particular. Check out the film "Searching For Elliott Smith". I was moved to record my solo banjo/voice rendition and film a music video, check it out below.
