Sail Across The Sun Cruise

I had the great pleasure of performing on the Sail Across The Sun cruise with Stephen Kellogg last week.  The cruise was hosted by the band Train, and we got to share the stage with great artists like Ingrid Michaelson, A Great Big World, Andy Grammer, and The Wailers.  Stephen and I played 3 shows together as a duo, before he got asked to sing for Pat Monahan of Train.  Pat's voice was shot after a few days of cruising, so Stephen got to sing the hits with the band while Pat stood next to him.  It was really cool to see my partner in crime rock the crowd with Train!

New BRR Record

The new Bronze Radio Return record is coming along amazingly.  We spent 3 weeks at Sonic Ranch studios in Tornillo, TX.  Then did 2 more weeks at Blackwatch Studios in Norman, OK, where our producer Chad Copelin resides.  We're nearing the end, with only a few studio sessions left, before F Reid Shippen starts to mix the hell out of it.  In my opinion, this is the most distinct, and unique sounding record we've created as a band.  We're pushing the limits of what roots-rock can be.  I got to do a lot of tracking on this beautiful 79' Rogers Butcher Block kit (pictured).  We were lucky to have such great gear at our disposal, including vintage 251's, and M50 mics.  These were by far the best drum sounds I've ever been a part of.  The release date is TBD right now.....more to come!

Bronze Radio Return on the Golden Globes!

Wow, our song "Further On" was played on the Golden Globes tonight!  We were lucky enough to have the song in Bill Murray's latest movie, "St. Vincent" and the song was played while highlighting the movie.  That song has seen a lot of airtime this year, being in commercials like Blue Moon Brewing, Olive Garden, Academy Sports, the PGA Tour and shows like American Idol. 

Tour with Stephen Kellogg

I just wrapped up a great tour with singer/songwriter Stephen Kellogg.  We played small theaters throughout the country as a duo, and almost every show was sold out!   Playing drums in a duo setting is very challenging.  I had to learn about 70 tunes, and re-interpret them for this type of show.  I ended up playing a lot of percussion (shaker, tambourine) kind of grooves, and got to do a lot of brushwork.  I haven't played brushes that much since my days of playing jazz gigs 6 nights a week.  I also got to really put my vocal chords to the test, singing harmonies on every song.  Most nights, we also had a guest or 2 from that city sit in.  In Nashville, we had Hailey Steele, who was supporting us on the tour, and Annie Clements sit in for a few (pictured).  Stephen was such a great guy to work with.  Talk about a seriously driven artist!  Catch us together periodically throughout the year.  Next up is the Train Cruise, on Feb 13.
