Hey guys, just wanted to say thank you to everyone who came out to the birthday shindig we had the other night! I had a blast playing with my new band (shout out to all of you guys as well!) and it meant the world to have all of you there.
Man do I feel old… see you all real soon.
Wow, it’s been a couple… I have actually been crazy busy with a few things so I thought I would take a moment to bring all of you up to speed (you lucky devils, you).
I had a great time playing with Steve Dunn and his Sasquatch Rescue Unit in Burlington, CT, and it turns out it was for a great cause. We were able to raise some cash for Paul Newman’s “Hole In The Wall Gang” charity, and had a great time while doing it. From there it was off to the world famous Bitter End in NYC to take part in LALMs “Tribute to the Bitter End”, which also doubled as a tribute/remembrance of Kenny Gorka. Ken was a pivotal part of the club and music scene in New York for many years, and I feel fortunate to have met him. New York can be a mean, shitty place and he was always nice to me when he didnt have to be, which meant the world so it was an honor to be a part of it. Looks like we might do an encore show sometime in July, so if it happens I will be sure to let all of you know.
Finally, I have been gearing up for my birthday show on June 24th at The Webster Theatre in Hartford, CT! This one is special: a) because I am lucky enough to be playing with Soul Asylum and The Meat Puppets- both of whom I am a huge fan of, but also b) as I have put together a SLAMMIN’ band for this one! we have been fast at work deciding which tunes to play and rehearsing them to really do this one right, so I hope to see as many of you there as possible.
Talk soon kiddies, take care.
Hey guys, its been a while! Just wanted to say thank you to everyone that came out to the shows this past weekend in Burlington, VT and Portland, ME. I love playing around New England and getting to see all of my friends so you know I’ll be back up that way soon. Also, the new hoodies seem to be flying off the shelf, so make sure you hit the merch store and get yours today!
I am actualy playing a few hometown shows coming up- The KC Dubliner with Steve Dunn in Burlington, CT on the 30th and The Webster Theatre in Hartford, CT on my birthday, June 24th, with Soul Asylum and The Meat Puppets! Make damn sure you are at these shows, I don’t play home a lot (and get a lot of requests to do so… so here you go!).
And now for a tease: there is something SUPER cool in the works right now… I hope to be able to tell you all about it real soon.
So after 5 shows in 7 days that went by way too fast, I am home now and catching up on some much needed zzz’s but I just wanted to take a quick second and thank Zach Myers, JR Moore, Zack Mack, Matt and Sparky for having me on the tour and taking such good care of me! These are some of the most talented, hard working and welcoming guys you could ever ask to tour with and I felt like part of the group from the get go.
And the crowds! It’s hard to pick a favorite… from the awesome people I met in Green bay to the “Footloose-esque” venue we played in Ringle. The LEGENDARY Machine Shop in Flint- for which I am honored to have played, The Foundry and wrapping it up (for me anyways) in Kent Ohio at The Crossroads- I can honestly say that I enjoyed each set/venue/crowd for dfferent reasons.
From there it was off to Nashville on a whirlwind trip to cowrite with the awesome Mando Saenz and catch up with some friends before driving all the way back to CT… too much fun crammed into too few days. I am off for a few before heading out there again, to which I am chomping at the bit to get back to it, but for now it’s nice to be home (my dog appreciates it…). See you all soon
I say God DAMN that was fun last night! Just wanted to say thank you to everyone in Green Bay, WI that came out to the show- you guys really know how to make a boy feel welcome. Colds be damned, the show was great and I am hoping to get back here real soon to see all of ya again!
Tomorrow I’ll be in Ringle, WI- please come say hi! Thank you for allowing me to do this…..
OFFICIALLY. ON. THE ROAD. Couldn’t be more excited to see ya this week, and I know we are going to have a blast! Check out the dates to see if I am coming to your town (I hope I am!), and if not, let me know so I can change that real soon. First show is Green Bay, WI on Monday, see ya there…
Hey everyone, with tour dates a few weeks away it’s getting pretty exciting here- and now to add to the excitement! It turns out that I have been nominated for Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Best Singer/Songwriter and a slew of others in the CT Music Awards! So what I need all of y’all to do is go here and vote for your boy in any category that’ll have me! The voting ends April 30th, so make sure you tell your friends…
See you all soon,
Huge news! I am THRILLED to announce that I will be heading out for a few dates in April with Zach Myers of SHINEDOWN and my good friend Justin Moore of Ingram Hill!!! I have added the dates on the tour page, so see if we are coming to a city near you, and BE THERE!!
So this happened- which leads to new contest time! Download your official McCloud Cubee here, make him/me (carefully!) and send me a pic on Facebook or Twitter. Funniest picture wins merch! contest ends Mar 30th. GO!
Hey guys- just a quick note to let you all know that the next show is in the town that stole my heart, Portland ME on Mar 21st. I have the pleasure of sharing the stage with friends Noonday Crawlers, who are a great band so make sure you are there!
Also, I should be announcing more dates soon (as soon as I can, actually) and I hope that I am coming to see all of you soon. There will hopefully be some BIG news coming that I am literally dying to tell you about asap!
Thank you guys for sticking with me through all of this- your continued support is affirming and means more than you could know. I love you all
