Today is a big day for me! I'm thrilled to finally roll out a few special projects I've spent the last several months working on personally!
"DEAR ME" VIDEO
Today is the premiere of my "Dear Me" music video, starring me, and a whole bunch of you! You can watch it HERE!
Note: If you submitted a video - THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME AND PLEASE DO NOT TAKE IT PERSONALLY IF YOUR SUBMISSION WASN'T USED.
There were lots of reasons why we couldn't include all the submissions, but the most common reason was, the picture quality wasn't high enough to be able to read the sign. I truly wish "Dear Me" was 40 minutes long so that I could have included all the submissions in the video. There are lots of reasons why "Dear Me" is not 40 minutes long, but the main reason is because no one would listen to it.
Second, I'm announcing the dates for my Uncharted Territory shows. This is my quest to perform in all 50 states. I have just 5 states left to go and this has been a project I've spent a lot of energy on - making calls, talking to venues, and trying to talk my booking agent into the idea! :)

Here's the scary part for me: there's a good reason I've never played these last 5 states - I have no idea if anyone knows my music there or will come to my shows!
These shows are me, stepping out of my comfort zone, and out into the great unknown, in search of new ideas and new inspiration. And I'm inviting you to join me.
Maybe you've never seen Mount Rushmore and this is an excuse to take the kids.
Maybe you've been meaning to spend some time with your old college roommate and a road trip to Wyoming sounds like the perfect weekend.
Or (like me) maybe you've always wanted to go to Alaska and now is as good a time as any to fly there with your insane party animal father-in-law and explore.
I'm excited to meet and see the local people of these states at these special shows, but I'm also hoping to have people from all over the country (and the world?) make the trip and join Me and The Believers in Uncharted Territory (get it?)
I even booked all these shows on the weekend so you'd be able to come! :)
Lots more info coming soon!
