The last few gigs in Germany have warmed my soul; they have energized me, re-invigorated my passion for performance, and left me truly humbled and grateful to be alive.

I performed in a beautiful venue with vaulted ceilings( the living room of Michael Schulte!) named C.ult in Bielefeld, on the night of a full moon.

Next, I performed at a cancer rehabilitation center for 50 audience members, several of whom were cancer patients who were sick, but who gave me all their attention and energy for 90 minutes. We shared beers, laughed, shared jokes, and I was truly honored to perform for them.


Last night in a small town among mountains, I received the best hospitality from a small, family-run theater.  A great show, and an amazing dinner.  All put together by a husband and wife and their awesome son.

Thanks Germany!


My second time playing music at FYAL Central in Münster, Germany was one of my favorite shows so far this year!  Concert #4 of 15 on this tour, and it filled me with wonderful energy I’ll take with me for the rest of the performances.  Thank you so much for being there last night and making me feel welcome.  It was great to be back!  One of my favorite cities and venues in Germany!  munster

Well, it was an incredible year in 2015.  I’m forever grateful for you loyal fans who return to shows and continue to support my music.  Many of you also helped support my new watercolor stationary endeavor before the holidays.


I’m very excited to share that 2016 looks like it’s starting off on an incredible note, as well.  I head to EU tomorrow to perform 15 shows in Germany, visit the land where Sherry is made in Spain, and to make it even better I’ll be alongside my favorite travel companion.


When I return, I have the great pleasure of joining my dear friend, Pokey Lafarge, for two solo shows in February.  February 4th in St. Louis, MO at OFF Broadway, and then in our home town, Bloomingtin, IL at The Castle Theater on February 20th.


Finally, mark your calendars for my first NYC show in 2016 at Rockwood Music Hall on February 27th.


I feel very lucky this morning writing this post.  May my gratitude hopefully reach you and beyond.  See you all on the road!
