Now – late Oct. 2018 update


For background on a “now” page, click here.

This weekend, I’m joining my friend Mike Slaten for a couple of shows in the Huntsville/Madison area:

Fri., Oct. 26 at Wish You Were Beer – Campus 805

Sat., Oct. 27 at Rocket City Craft Beer

Come hang out!

In other news, my documentary Commit to the Song: The Joe Thomas Jr. Guitar Pull should be available for rent or purchase from Amazon on November 1. If you haven’t seen the trailer, here it is:

Next week, I’m serving as Director of Photography for a short film, along with acting in one scene. Also, I’m working with C. DeWayne Cunningham and Royce Williams on two documentary projects – one is still filming and one is now in the early editing stages. And I helped both of them and writer/director Sharisma Bell recently with an upcoming web series they’re producing. More on all of those soon.

Also recently, I was part of a music and film panel that was sponsored by 21 Dreams Arts & Culture Collective as part of this year’s Flight of the Arts MGM. Many thanks to Kalonji Gilchrist and 21 Dreams for their work in promoting both art and artist.

The recent Barrens show with The Ghost of Daniel Pratt and The Goddamn Rights was a lot of fun. Next Barrens show is coming up Dec. 14. Here’s a clip of a new song:

I think that’s it for now. Thanks for reading.

Barrens and I made the news!

The next Barrens show is Oct. 20 at Bomber’s Pub in Montgomery, AL, and the Montgomery Advertiser ran a feature on us today that includes a live performance of the song “All Those Lights” and some photos.

They also include a section on me as a solo artist, adding in a live performance of my song “This Barren Land” (and since I have been asked before, no, neither the song nor lyrics are about the band.)

Fun fact: I had a sinus infection and had lost my voice the week leading up to that recording, but the show must go on, right?

Anyway, my next solo performances are scheduled for the Huntsville/Madison area on Oct. 26 and 27:

Oct. 26 at Wish You Were Beer (at Campus 805 in Huntsville)
Oct. 27 at Rocket City Craft Beer (in Madison)

Both of those shows allow me to share the stage with my friend Mike Slaten (of Tres Locos, Duos Locos, and Forest Haven.)

Thanks for reading. Much love.
