From a Basement on the Hill

I haven’t played a full set of original music in Nashville since the August 17th show at The End. Between tribute shows and side-projects, trips to the NW, and home-recording, it’s been nearly 4 months since I’ve played a local show. And what a show this will be! First of all, instead of the 3-piece line-up I had been using so frequently, I have a 7-piece for this show. Steve Latanation (Agent Orange, Derek Hoke) on drums, Jeremy Branon (Randy Montana) on bass, Ethan Luck (Relient K) on lead guitar, Travis Terrell (he’s played with Willie Nelson and George Strait at least once!) on keys, Paul Thacker (Jacob Jones) on baritone sax, and Ashley Anderson (Magnolia Sons) is doing back-up vocals and harmonies.

Something else that is unique about this show is the setlist. It’s almost entirely brand new songs. I’m planning to get started on a new record in the first half of 2012, and this is the first time I’ll be trying out some of the new tunes. Hopefully we’ll get some video footage of the set. Come on out, Nashville, to the Basement tonight!
