Lakeside LP out! Videos, gigs and a brand new studio too.

Hello Friends, the limited edition (500 copies) signed and numbered vinyl only with included downloads gatefold LP is out and and being delivered around the world.  NY Music Daily says “Lakeside captures the guitarmeister at the top of his game”.  Now I’ve Heard Everything calls it “Perfect”.  You can read a bunch of reviews on the press page.  I’m updating it as they come in.  If you still don’t have the record you can get it here and only here!

The first two of 3 videos that I did with Lakeside producer Jimbo Mathus are out.  “Don’t Make Me Break You Down” was filmed in Jimbo’s back yard in Taylor, Mississippi and the lead off track from the  record, “Here Come My Love” written by Del-Lords bandmate Scott Kempner, was filmed at Cowboy Technical Services last location (where Lakeside was recorded and mixed) in Williamsburg, Brooklyn just before we moved the studio to it’s new location in Greenpoint. You can find the videos here.  You can also subscribe to my YouTube channel and we’ll let you know as new stuff gets posted.

I have some gigs booked including a NYC official record release gig at Berlin under 2A on April 29th with Spanking Charlene.  I’m doing some gigs with my band, some solo gigs (a couple opening for the Bottle Rockets) and some gigs with Sarah Borges where I play with her band and she plays with me.  I’m doing my best to get out to play but I’m pretty busy with the new studio and producing more great records for you to check out.

After 8 great years at what Tim Hatfield and I viewed as a temporary location Cowboy Technical Services was forced to move as the Real Estate Monster in the guise of some conglomeration paid 43 Million Dollars for the run down building we were located at in Williamsburg and kicked 6 floors of tenants out.  At the last minute we found a fabulous new spot for us in Greenpoint, Brooklyn with windows and towering 17 foot ceilings.  The move was tough but we are up and running there now with both tracking and mixing sessions under our belts.  We also added a 75 year old Steinway Grand Piano to our quiver.  It’s parked in an affiliated studio in the same building.  If you’d like to see the new place don’t hesitate to request a tour.
