2019 was a year of thought and reflection for me; two things there’s ample opportunity for when you spend a disproportionate amount of your time in a van. All of those hours inside my own head (in-between podcasts) led me, among other things, to understand that it was time to put an end to the nonstop touring that had largely dominated the previous 4 1/2 years of my life; keeping me away from my family and friends, several personal objectives that I had repeatedly put off, and causing me to miss out on an exciting time in my adopted home town. The only way off of this train was to jump while it was moving full-speed, and that’s what I chose to do. I know that the road will always be there, and I’m pretty sure we’re not entirely done with each other, but right now I’m looking forward to more time with the kids, more visits to the dog park, and more nights in my own bed. I have a lot to share about what I think it means to be a full-time touring musician, what music is for and about, and how we use it in our lives, I’m going to do that here on a regular basis, so please stay tuned!
Happy New Year
