Thanks to everyone who came out to the Novo Luna show at Cool Beans on Saturday! We definitely all had a lot of fun playing :)

A lot of stuff going on for me musically right now!

First of all, I'm hard at work at my solo/acoustic album, Unsent Letters, which will be available for download on the website and/or to order physical copies on December 1, 2009. I'm taking my sweet time with it, really. I'm really excited about it, though, because I've had all of these songs just sort of floating around for four or five years, and I've done some simple acoustic demos, but it will be really good to get the best of these songs (in my opinion) all on one cohesive CD. 

In addition to my solo work, I'm continuing to play shows with Novo Luna, and we are also working on an EP, which should be released sometime soon. And, I've started up a new project with Michael Tillman. We're trying to bring a shoegaze/post-rock/alternative band to the Atlanta music scene, i.e. Sigur Ros, Slowdive, Smashing Pumpkins, Stars, Broken Social Scene, Hammock, etc. We've written several songs, and we're currently looking for a drummer. (And we'll be looking for a bass player shortly after that.) If you'd like to hear a sample, I've got three songs that we've written together on my website at the New Music Project page. (Also, if you know any drummers and/or bass players who are into that sort of music, send them my way!)

And I have a few upcomming shows as well:
  • September 24th - 10:00 pm - Solo show at Smith's Olde Bar in the Atlanta Room - Atlanta, GA - 5 dollars - 21+
  • October 10th - 7:30 pm - Novo Luna show at Cool Beans - Atlanta, GA - FREE - all ages
Other than that, I've been floating around town trying to check out new Open Mic nights so I can meet some new musicians, hear some new songs, share my songs. You know, lovely, exciting, musical nights of sharing and awesomeness. Haha. And of course, I like to promote other people's art on this website, so if you have any shows coming up in the metro Atlanta area or have any tracks I can post on here and share with people, let me know! And here are a few albums that I've been obsessing over lately. You should definitely check them out!
What have you been listening to?
