AthFest & Archer’s Arrow!

Got two shows next weekend for AthFest- playing with The Wild Fires plus the Malian ‘Mande’ band, Lassine Kouyate. Info below..

In other news, Archer’s Arrow, the album originally recorded backed by members of Nutria (now playing in The Eskimos), has been mixed by the mighty Bronson Tew at Dial Back Sound in Mississippi. Members of Jimbo Mathus‘ Tri-State Coalition stopped in to add some majestic sounds. Look out for details on the release as it comes together. We’d say it’s rockin and beautiful.


It’s summertime.. go outside!

Join us for an excellent Tuesday night bill at Green Room in Athens tomorrow, May 20th. With Oklahoma’s great John Moreland and Athens’ own Jeremy Wheatley (Crooked Fingers, Ruby the Rabbitfoot) playing as Sailors & Ship. Hammond goodness assured.

Recording & Dogwood Festival

Looking forward to playing Atlanta Dogwood Festival on Friday afternoon (4/11). Come say hey & catch The Wild Fires- 1:30pm on the main stage.

In other news, spent the weekend recording at the folks’ place in Athens with the mighty Bronson Tew. Made huge advances on the “Nutria” album (Archer’s Arrow, my version of a garage rock record initially recorded in a few evenings back in the fall 2011) and played and sang the songs for Tropical Bones, my Nicaragua-inspired album. Enjoyed using Bronson’s 1961 Gibson acoustic guitar. Felt great to get these projects moving forward a bit. I’ll chime in with more on these albums as we progress.
