One Year In Texas: A Full Report 

Hey y'all, 

Can you believe it? This Friday marks ONE YEAR spent in Texas, one year spent as a full-time musician, and one year where I haven't yet starved to death! 

Some stats: in the first 365 days, I played 151 shows at 65 different venues: bars, breweries, farmers markets, old folks homes, and more (almost 400 hours of stage time), driven 13,600+ miles for work (NOT counting the 1850 miles it took to get to Texas), and sweated through and/or broken nearly 120 sets of guitar strings. Had $1000 worth…

Seasons Greetings from ATX! 

Helloooooooo strangers! 

Been a hot minute since I last wrote, so it seems like it was about time to drop y'all a line, let you know how life has been since I up and moved down to Tejas!

Not quite at my 15-20 a month goal just yet, but not too shabby a beginning, if I do say so myself. I've been greeted warmly and supported by the lovely people around here, finding a few…

I don't love winter, but I really, really hate hot weather; little makes me wilt so quickly as 85+ with high humidity. I may as well just be an actual puddle on the sidewalk on days like that. Thankfully…

JH In September 

Hi there ho there! 

It's been a hard summer in a lot of ways, but the leaves begin to turn, the temperatures begin to drop, and (for a brief moment) we have the possibility of perfection before the winter comes. I always thought that "leaf-peeping" was ridiculous, until I moved to the Hudson Valley... now I'm that guy doing 35 in a 55 (sorry!), in awe of my surroundings. Just means I need to leave a little earlier to get places... 

Shows shows shows! I'll be some places this month: 
Sat, Sep 16 - Hudson…
