What’s happening

Pandemic update

What a topsy-turvy time we're living through. I hope you're being smart, calm and inventive. I have relocated to a new place we affectionately call 'The Nut House.' It's got a real cool vibe.

I've been blessed to be part of the essential worship team at Unity Church of Austin during the pandemic. We continue to livestream services every Sunday at 11AM Central time.

I've played some solo lifesream shows  as well as livestreams with Sharon Bourbonnais.  I've even played some safe outdoor shows at Botticelli's in Austin with her.

I'm excited to announce I'm starting a new project with Raul Trevino (aka Lito James) along with Kyle Judd and Grady Humble. Not entirely sure what we'll call it yet but we're starting to get busy on it.

Stay safe and well. Thanks for listening, liking commenting and sharing.

All the best!
