Hey everybody!

I hope you all are having a good year-end, I know mine is shaping up to be very interesting. If I havn’t mentioned it recently, my wife Julie & I are expecting our first child 1/24, a girl named Lily! I’ll keep that updated here. Everyone is way healthy & happy at this point…

I’ve reposted last years’  Black Mountain Underground Christmas episode for your free listening & downloading holiday enjoyment.

The mighty Magnetic North Project just wrapped up a fun show on 12/1/12 at the Greshville Inn just outside Boyertown, PA that was recorded by our good friend Otto Bost which you can listen to HERE. a fine recording, I’m very proud of Ray & Zack for constant growth & being so much fun to work with as well as our new drummer Zak for settling in so wonderfully and all of them for playing so well! It is truly a pleasure being in this band, my first personal project in a while. It’s broken my dry spell in writing and inspired me in so many ways, I’m listening much better again. Working in other people’s projects can be rewarding but ultimately you’re at the hands of someone else, at least in the few times I’ve put myself in that situation, and when they don’t know what they want or are completely distracted by whatever, OR have high expectations (such as fame, immediate wealth or something less clear) it is too easy to become marginalized (respected less). The next thing is mistrust because you’re not completely on board, a place they put you in the first place. It’s very hard to run a band.  Ray & Zack & Zak make it very easy, and I’m thankful for that. I’m also very happy to be working with Casey at Honey Hoedown Productions, he’s working with me to get the band out there, and myself, you’ll be seeing more shows at new venues thanks to Casey. There’s already a bunch – Thanks, Casey!

Magnetic North Project is proud to be doing a set at the Winter Solstice Jam at Reverb in Reading, Pa on Friday, December 21st

MNP will also be doing a full show the next night (12/22) at the Pickering Creek Inn in Phoenixville, PA.

Also newsworthy (for me), I did a private gig with Colby Wallace this past month, drummer for the fabulous Wallace Brothers Band. If you havn’t seen these guys you should, great playing and singing coming from a hipster/country place – any Stone Poets fan would love them. Anyways, Colby & I are going to start doing some drummer/guitarist duo gigs together starting with Thursday, 12/27 at the Penn Taproom in Doylestown, PA

And lastly, here’s a link to Litz’ recording of the set Julie & I did with some of the guys from Cabinet when we opened for them around Thanksgiving, that was a blast thanks to Pappy, JP, Mickey and of course Tom Moran and the Jazz Cafe, not to mention Keith Litzenberger.

Have a great Holiday Season everybody, see ya out there!
