whew, made it.
I haven't moved to a town where I was a total stranger since I was 18 years old...it's a strange, lonesome but inspiring feeling. Louisville has done a great job making me feel welcome, including a fun spot on the local news, check out this video here:
playing tonight at the great local venue, Uncle Slayton's with a couple pals, justin lewis and patrick dethlefs, come say hello. I'll be back in Colorado this February to record my new album, so look out old friends, i'm coming for you.
stay in touch,
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.
