Last year, I had the pleasure of participating in my dear friend’s documentary called Heartworn Highways Revisited – a follow up to the seminal Heartworn Highways made in 1976 about the beginnings of ‘Outlaw Country’ in Nashville and Austin. John McCauley from Deer Tick, Jonny Fritz, Shovels and Rope, Robert Ellis, Justin Townes Earle…are just a few of the beautiful badasses that are featured in this film, set to be released summer 2015.
To celebrate the launch of HeartwornHighways.com, check out THIS VIDEO of a new song of mine called “Southern Bells” shot by director Wayne Price.
Please take a moment to explore the website and sign up for the site’s mailing list to stay informed about all things Heartworn, from screenings to more exclusive BONUS content like this video.
Peace, love and rock n roll
Greetings amigos. I’ve enjoyed these last solo shows so darn much that I’ve decided to play a few more dates before the end of 2014. Here’s NY and my original hometown of Philadelphia. I’m coming home to see my family, watch Eagles football, and sing for y’all, so grab tix below and come get yer freak on with me. The band and I will start recording our new record soon after so keep eyes and ears open for updates. As always, stay wild, mighty, and well. Life’s a carnival and we are the beautiful freaks.

I’m honored and energized to have friends that are dreamers. The wild ones, the feelers, the beautiful freaks. For these are the ones that dance without needing to know the moves. I recently played at an amazing gathering by Hudson, NY called Manifest organized by such friends. For an idea of what I’m talkin’ about, watch the video below!
I’m delighted be to performing solo at another festival organized by more soul rebels in Arnoldsville, GA called Wildwood Revival. That’s coming up on November 8th. More info at http://www.wildwoodrevival.com/
Love and light to y’all!!

Dear friends, we’ve had an incredible journey these last two years since ‘The Way We Move’ was released. It’s been a wild, beautiful adventure that has led us not to feeling road weary and worn but renewed and reborn. The time has come to get off the road for a bit and work on new material in hopes of recording this winter. Thank you all so much for your love and support. A song is still a song when nobody is listening but it ain’t a party. Thank you for making it a party. We love you all.
We recently had the pleasure of teaming up with our dear friends The Avett Brothers for a few shows. On this journey, the one-and-only Crackerfarm was along to capture some footage! Here’s the second of two videos from these shows. Y’all enjoy!
