Excited for the Mali project (Lassine Kouyate) to be playing this year’s SLINGSHOT Festival alongside fantastic acts from around the world, including Argentina’s Juana Molina, Omar Souleyman from Syria, Glenn Kotche of Wilco, Athens’ own Reptar, and plenty more.
Check out a live video of “Kana Waa” from a Georgia Theatre show w/ Toubab Krewe sometime back.. here.
Stay warm, y’all!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows in the midwest to kick off the new year. Chicago was 24 degrees below 0 with the wind chill. It was a cold week but a great one. Hope to circle back and see y’all again before too long. Look for a Daytrotter session in the next few months.
Thanks to Cincinnati Refined for this cool write-up:
Wow. Another great week for Cincy music lovers. Winter blahs? No way! Make sure you catch Talib Kweli’s DJ set. And I’m particularly stoked for Athens, Georgia’s Adam Klein. He does Americana that’s simply gorgeous, gorgeously simple. Take a listen: “Sky Blue Deville.”
And to Joe Simon of the Cincinnati Enquirer for taking photos at the Southgate House show. Check out the gallery here.
Bored? You can hear an hour-long interview with St. Louis’ 1380AM “Face the Music” show (see 1/3/15) at facethemusicstl.com.

Startin off the new year with shows. Hittin’ the road for duo shows in the midwest first part of January. Spread the word & c’mon out from the post-holiday daze.
An update.. Been laying low on the music front and working on various indie and other film and tv projects in Georgia of late. But.. here comes 2015! Look for Archer’s Arrow release and touring this new year, and recording will continue for the Nicaragua-inspired folk collection Tropical Bones with the mighty Bronson Tew of Fat Possum‘s Dial Back Sound studio along with the skilled, understated musicianship of the Pickup Cowboys’ (see Jonathan Byrd) Paul Ford and Johnny Waken. Gonna be smokin’, in a way.
