Hope this is finding everyone well. I just returned from the UK a couple of nights ago. Everything was really good there. The tour with the Mavs came off very smoothly and assorted promotional activities for the record were almost exciting! Things are shaping up very nicely there.

And now it’s tim to hit the road over here and get the party started. We’re kicking it off with the CD release party in Nashvegas on the 15th, then straight up to Detroit Rock City (only Michigan show! come on people!) to kick off the Sexsmith extravaganza. I’m happy to announce that I’ll be playing that tour with my good friend Stuart Cameron, a highly skilled guitarist and lap steel player who also sings and makes a mean drink.

A few of which will be required, as I have not toured quite this heavily for a long time. I am looking forward to seeing a lot of you along the way; lord knows it’s been too long. I got new records and t-shirts to sell, so get on out to the mercantile tent and make my day.

OK, ’til then…

Howdy, Folks. I feel instantly gratified to be making my first posting on the hot new forums. This is actually the first time I’ve been able to access it; Marc has been teasing me by setting up the site so that everyone could access it except me. Bastard.

Anyway, we seem to be small and mighty for the moment, which is just the way that I like it. God knows when this thing gets massive all of our egos will be going through the roof, so let’s appreciate this relatively humble period in our lives.

Thanks a lot for the compliments on the site and the new music. It means a lot to know that everything is passing mustard (muster? What does it mean?) for the moment. I just got advances for the new record- the artwork looks even better than I imagined. I have passed on all of your compliments regarding the paintings to Nat and she is highly appreciative. Her site will be up soon for anyone who is interested in seeing more…

Here’s the crux of my new discussion topic, if anyone is willing to roll with me: Male Perms. That’s right, somebody please tell me what the hell is going on. I’ve seen Jack White, Beck, the guys from Queer Eye For The Straight Guy… it is a dangerous trend that threatens to drag all of us straight back into Reaganomics and I refuse to support it. I vow to defend the Youth of America from the decrepit trends that shaped my childhood.


OK, in other pressing (sort of) news, I went up to Toronto and did the video for Beauty this week. I think it’s going to be really impressive, but I’ll have to see the final edit before I can be sure. What I do know is that I had to do very little besides perform the song a few times on piano and guitar, which is just the way I like it. The meat of the acting was left to an attractive young girl of Ontarian descent who truly carried the emotional weight of the song. There’s a bit more to it than that, but we might as well wait for the final result before making too many dramatic declarations about who did what. Right?

OK, Y’all. I’m awfully internet ready these days, so let’s get the good times rollin’ and stay in touch.

See You Soon,
