Thanks to all of our friends and vast extended family that came out last night to the Comet Tavern to witness a new era being born. It was the first show I’d played in 7 months, and I kept my eyes closed for most of it. Trying to focus on the music, present it honestly, but everytime I opened my eyes I was surrounded by smiling faces and lovely people giving back all the energy I was putting out. Thank you. And a big thanks goes to my new band – Brendan Bosworth (who was part of the last line-up of Dolour back in the day) on bass, Ryan Richter (who played steel on Hey Lazarus!) on lap steel, and Brian Bosworth (Brendan’s brother and amazing graphic artist) on the trap kit.
We have some great stuff line-up including 2 performances on June 11th. At noon you can catch us live on KEXP with Cheryl Waters, and that evening you can see us at the Sunset in Ballard as part of the Noise for the Needy Festival.
And now the moment you’ve all been waiting for – album artwork! My brother Brandon Tutmarc designed the perfect film-noir meets Blue Note album cover to match this sprawling American tale, Shouting At A Silent Sky. While I can’t give you an exact street date for the album yet, the goal is to have it available in some fashion by the KEXP and Sunset performances. We shall keep you posted.
Good Night and Good Luck,
