It seems that my most consistent Christmas/New Years tradition is writing a blog post where I apologies for not writing as many blog posts as I promised I would the year prior. So once again, I PROMISE TO GET BETTER AT WRITING BLOG POSTS IN 2012 AND UPDATE THIS SITE MORE DAMN OFTEN!
Truth is, it’s almost certain that this year will be a busy one. On the blog and otherwise.
The last few years have been full of many changes for me. My first son, River, was born in 2010 and I bought a home in New Zealand where I now spend about half of the year, splitting my time between NZ and Los Angeles. The family and I recently took an 11 country trip through Europe and I’ve also had my hands full with my latest business venture: Music Marketing Manifesto.
But somewhere in there I found the time to finish my 4th album. Still working on the final mixes but the tracks are in the can and it should be finished shortly.
I’m really excited about this one. It’s a blue-grass album with alternative sensibilities. Banjos, fiddles, and plenty of four letter words. It’s a mix of originals and covers, (something I have never really done before), and I’m diggin’ it.
As excited to put it out as I am, I have one other thing on the schedule this year that I’m even more excited about and that’s my upcoming wedding to my fiancée, Keshama Jane.
Assuming she can still tolerate me, we will be getting married in late February at our country home here in New Zealand. It’s been a long time coming and I am happy/proud/stoked/honored to make an honest woman out of her. Thanks babe.
At the risk of sounding a bit corny, I sincerely want to thank all of YOU for still being part of this journey with me. It’s now been almost 12 years since the release of my first album and the launch of this site. Whether you’ve been here the entire time or you’re a new arrival, thank you for reading, listening, and just taking the time.
Here’s to a kick ass 2012!
