Welcome to 2016!
I have a gut feeling that many positive things are on the horizon for the new year! Do you feel it too!? I just returned from an eight day little music tour in Colorado and New Mexico with Hello Dollface band! What an amazing group of people they are. The trip's main focus was New Year's Eve show at the Strater Theater in downtown Durango, CO! We played a Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder tribute show to a sold out crowd! It was a blast! It was also very challenging as these tunes were not geared toward guitar and had a very challenging arrangements! I was humbled and inspired by all the hard work it took to learn these tunes and pull it off. I hope to study some new aspects of my instrument this year for sure.
2015 included many exciting things for me musically, and at my guitar shop! "Sean & Adam" competed in the International Blues Challenge on Beale Street, in Memphis TN. We played our asses off and I couldn't have been more happy with our performances. Although I still haven't won this international blues bout, I will stay forever motivated and positive. The talent we faced down there was incredible! It's amazing to hear blues from all over the world being packed into a few historic blocks in downtown Memphis TN.
I also completed my best Southwest tour yet! Thanks to the wonderful folks at iAM Independent Artist Management (http://www.iammusic.us) I played about 30 shows in a 6 week driving adventure through the beautiful states of Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, and Arizona. From coffee shops, to remote mountain towns, to theaters... I hiked over 15 state parks in-between all of these gigs too! Life on the road suites me well, and I am so grateful for my ability to be able to walk this path. It's a lot of hard work and takes faith and patience, but I wouldn't have it any other way! Plans for my 2016 tour are in the works too! Over 10 shows are on the books for April and early May! Keep an eye on the calendar to see where I'll be playing until then! I'm booking a lot of shows! I'm hoping to play over 200 shows this year.
I am planning to record another solo album of all new music, I am currently recording an amazing album with my newest project "Northern With Glasses", and will record a LIVE concert for print with the "Lynn & Farley 5"!!! Whoa! So much to look forward to!
