Well, not exactly the country, but the woman.
The lovely and talented China Forbes (of Pink Martini) is heading out on the road to promote her new solo album, "’78." By sheer coincidence, Ms. China and I shared the same manager in NYC way back when. So here we are some many odd years later playing a tour together.
And it’s a great band, not in the very least for the inclusion of Gregg Williams on drums and Lael Alderman on multi-instruments. I will be fool-hardedly handling guitar and some piano and singing along. Look for me and my new guitar pedals in these fancy locations:
Apr 7 - Los Angeles, CA @ Troubadour
Apr 8 - San Francisco, CA - Great American Music Hall
Apr 10 - Portland, OR - The Aladdin
Apr 11 - Seattle, WA - Triple Door
Apr 13 - Boston, MA (hi mom!) - The Paradise
Apr 14 - New York City - Bowery Ballroom
Apr 16 - Philadelphia, PA - World Cafe Live
Apr 18 - Washington, DC - The Birchmere
China’s record is really quite wonderful, and you can listen to it here:

While I spend my time writing the songs for the new record, come out to a show and say hi. See me pretend to know what I’m doing...LIVE!
Spring time all the time,
