Run Along

Wheels are in motion, cogs are turning, steam is squeaking out of the boiler's every crack. Yep, an actual tour is in the feverish planning phase.  Aotearoa/New Zealand at this stage. A staggered and belated re-release of Wood & Waste certainly, but with some new tunes and a choice smattering of R&B oddities and improvisations as a side order. The prospect of hitting old and new fave spots, despite the slightly brain-stretching logistics required to keep it all humming, feels good to be work on after so long a pause. Expect summery live action (in both solo and trio configurations)...

After Math

Wood & Waste was released about 50 million years ago, in October 2021.  It's doing some business. I'm grateful that it's been picked up by Cargo Records UK for global distribution, and it's available from great retailers like Elusive Disc in the States and Groovy Wax in the UK. And it achieved 6 months on US charts (the AMA Americana charts and also featuring on the Blues Rock Album charts) and is on rotation (as of last week) on just under 150 stations around the US, with 36 or so heavy rotation.
