It’s New Music Tuesday, so enjoy the new single, “Within Me,” from Laura Lee Bishop.  Co-produced and guitars by yours truly, and released by Tommy Boy.  Mahalo!

It’s summer, which means it’s road trip time and some country-rock is in order; so get yourself a copy of Texana for your next excursion down the open road!

Spent a musical past weekend in Nashville.  Lots of great tunes were played and memories made.  Also discovered was The Ranch Hands’ sartorial paradise: Katy K’s Ranch Dressing.

I came across this rad, antique book on the history of California’s Plumas County at Logos Books & Records.  Reminds me of an EP I put out back in 2010.

I always look forward to going to the Tejano Conjunto Festival in San Antonio (produced by the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center). Sunday’s concert was one for the books, and I even picked up a Tex-Mex accordion for myself, so I can learn a few licks and simultaneously annoy my neighbors.  Puro Conjunto!
