I was honored to participate in The 78 Project film and to be featured on Volume 2 of the official soundtrack. You can pre-order your copy here. It’s a limited pressing, so you wanna grab one while you can. This is a fascinating project, and this volume of the soundtrack has Victoria Williams, John C. Reilly, the Bo-Keys, Ben Vaughn, myself, and more. Order it!

The 78 Project documentary will be making its local debut at the Indie Memphis Film Festival on October 30.

My buddies The Sheiks are heading to Europe in the fall, opening for (and backing up) my friend Jack Oblivian. I’ve been four times now, each tour at least six weeks long, including two tours with Jack just like the one they’re about to go on. I’ve also run into some other bands who will be heading over there and have asked me about it. I figured I would write down some tips for them. Might as well throw them up on Tumblr too, in case someone out there might find this info useful.
