Did you catch the release of Country Fried Rock‘s second compilation benefitting Nuci’s Space? Nuci’s is a beloved center in Athens, GA, for community support of artists and musicians (mental health care, substance abuse services, health services). It’s also a venue, coffee shop, and rehearsal space. It’s my go-to spot for band rehearsal and I love everything about it, including the staff.
Visit the compilation here at Bandcamp and support the cause. “Radar Man”, a song from an upcoming album of mine, Archer’s Arrow, is featured along with tracks from Centro-Matic, Shonna Tucker & Eye Candy, Drivin’ N’ Cryin’, Chickasaw Mud Puppies, Jack Logan, American Aquarium, Michelle Malone, and more. This is fine company.
And if you missed my interview this year with Sloane Spencer of Country Fried Rock about all things Sky Blue DeVille and Dugu Wolo, you can have a listen HERE. (Hit the play button above “Liner Notes” for the podcast.)
Nashville- join us at The Basement tomorrow night (SUN OCT 20th) for a fine bill w/ Gabriel Mintz, Chica Gamine, and more! The Wild Fires open at 8pm sharp!

Hello again folks. I’m proud to be on the board of a budding non-profit called Community Voice International. CVI is working to support community development projects in various villages in Senegal through a pretty unique model. We record field recordings of music made in each community, sell the tracks to listeners and supporters worldwide, and share info about these communities’ specific needs (new well for potable water, improvements on or construction of school buildings, improvements for local health care, micro-finance projects, etc.). 100% of the funds raised from the sale of the music will go back into the village to help them achieve their development goal.
The pilot project is underway and I’m pleased to share 9 full albums of field recordings made in various villages in Senegal. These tracks bring you into the heart of a community and its spirit. Please have a look via Bandcamp, share the page via facebook and twitter, and support the cause by purchasing some great music!
Check out CVI President David Bleckley’s interview with the BBC World Service Newsday today!
