Happy Eclipse, Everybody!
What a whirlwind this Summer has been. Non Stop Moves. Non-stop Growth! Looking back on the past 2 months is truly remarkable…
The Moves and I embarked on our 2017 Summer Tour for 30 long nights in July, capping 26 performances at 10 of the most beautiful states in the West and covering 6.5k miles. While on the road, I was contacted by Zach McNabb – Artist Manager for a few of the most incredible up-and-coming bands like TAUK and Consider the Source – who expressed interest in working with The Moves. This was a huge step for us and I’m excited to announce that TMC is now working alongside Zach and Zali Presents. 2018 is going to be a huge year for this team..
With that “…yeah we been playing together ALOT” kind of tight vibe, the band headed into the studio to track the basics of our next album, ‘Souls on the Run’. With the help of Alan Sanderson, we crushed out 9+ songs in just 3 days of tracking at Pacific Beat Recording. Following that third day of tracking, we finished the night off by releasing our very own collaboration beer called ‘Yonder Bru’ with Amplified Ales here in San Diego at Panama 66 in Balboa Park. We’ve all been so thrilled on the beer collaboration; it was a perfect home-coming celebration after our lengthy time on the road. Amplified Ales is really doing some big things with their bru’s … Collaboration beers with huge bands like Reel Big Fish, Motorhead and then another SD local – Sure Fire Soul Ensemble.
I’ve got some upcoming solo performances and would love to see you there! The next one is Sunday 8.27 from 1-4pm at Julian Station in the mountain town of Julian, CA.
The next performances with The Moves Collective are up in Grass Valley at Crazy Horse Saloon on Friday 9.8 at 10pm and then into the Eastern Sierras for the June Lake Jam Fest, featuring Melvin Seals & JGB, Cubensis and Moonalice – among many other talented acts. You can get tickets for this amazing *hidden secret* festival here!
Ahead of that, the band will be getting back on the road with The Moves for our 2017 Fall Tour, hitting our favorite towns once again before that snow falls heavy and that busy ‘holiday season’ is upon us.
Thank you for reading. I’m striving to keep you all updated on the joy I’m spreading, the projects I’m working on and the beautiful chaos that it takes to create art and then share it with the world.
