Suddenly, The Prestons.

Hey, so this is fun. The Prestons will be appearing this coming Saturday, September 2nd., at Luthier's Co-Op in Easthampton. We have the 8-9:30pm slot, bookended by True Believers from 7-8, and Marc Delgado rounding out the night from 9:30-11pm. It's going to be a great evening of superb entertainment and neighborly warmth. Use your time wisely. Come join us.

Retirement.

Back in January, Nick and Fred and I gave our trio a new name: The Town Council. You can read all about it HERE. Anyway, it turns out that this year has become our farewell tour. Life brought a few changes over past few months, and we've decided to put the band behind us.

We had a good run (eighteen years worth, if you go back as far as the Bluescasters and on through Group DeVille), but after one final appearance on September 29th at Mocha Maya's, we're done with public life. Our deepest thanks go to all of you who attended our shows, bought our albums, and cheered us on the whole way. And very special thanks as well to the venues we played, and the many great acts we shared the stage with through all these years.

Beautiful Rain.

Here's a sneak preview of the cover art for the upcoming album by The Prestons.


The album will feature six songs in all, three each from the two of us (The Prestons is my duo with Connecticut songwriter Bill Catalde, in case you don't know).  I am really pleased with how it's turning out. The record is slated for release later this year sometime. We'll keep you posted.

The Advocate Session.

The Valley Advocate, a widely-read local weekly, has been taping a series of in-office music videos, much in the same vein as NPR's Tiny Desk concerts. Expertly filmed by staff from Northampton Community Television, and with audio captured by Signature Sounds, the videos are all top-shelf productions of intimate performances in a very cool setting.

I recently taped an Advocate Session, and it is now online. CLICK HERE. There's an interview clip, and another of my five-song set.

Discography Update.

There's a link over there in the right-hand sidebar that leads to a periodically updated discography post. It's a list of recording projects I've been involved with, and I just brought it up to date this morning. It's getting to be a long list. Anyway, if you're interested, CHECK IT OUT.
