Here's to the Next Show 

"Here's to the Next Show," a new original song.

 

 

I started writing this song a while ago, in the midst of show cancelation after show cancelation.  I got to play some incredible shows at the beginning of the year.  There were many more planned, but as things progressed, some shows were moved to an online format, and most were simply called off.  It was quite sad and disappointing, but absolutely the right call during a global pandemic.  However, there was no way I was going to stop shows altogether. 

As the year went on, I found new ways to play shows.  Solo live streams, "group" live streams via Zoom, these YouTube videos, etc.  It was a strange new world of performing, but it allowed me to keep doing what I love, and to connect to both my musical colleagues and you wonderful listeners in new ways. 

Now back to the song.  What started as a song to help deal with the disappointment of so many cancelations became more.  It also became a way to express my gratitude for the chance to keep performing, and the support I received for doing so.  In keeping with that, the first time I played this song live was on the "Danny & Jimmy and Friends" live stream in December, a virtual show that brought together many of my friends from around the Midwest to share music with folks around the world.  It was vastly different from what I would have done a year ago, but it was an absolute blast. 

So thank you, and here's to the next show! 

You can find the demo recording of "Here's to the Next Show" right here.

Small Adventures - Coming Soon! 

I am beyond excited to announce the release of my first full-length album, "Small Adventures!"  This album is a combination of original and cover material, some of which I've been playing live for quite some time, and some that will be heard for just about the first time here.  I hesitate to call this a "solo" album, as I've had the help of many great people to make the musical ideas in my head a reality.

The release party will be on Thursday, May 9th at 7:30pm at Finnegan's in Minneapolis as part of the Irish Fair of Minnesota's Irish Arts Week.  The Inland Seas will open up the night, and later on I'll be joined on stage by Matt Blake, Kabel Lefto, and The Northerly Gales (you know, Jimmy, Tamara, Randy.  But not that other guy).  And best of all, you'll be able to purchase "Small Adventures" for the first time!

Stay tuned for more details!
