It’s official. I have signed a distribution contract with Redeye. The national street date for 4th Person is March 8th. I got to meet them all in NC during my tour in November when I visited their office “the house” and their warehouse. Some of them came to my show in Chapel Hill. They’re great people and I”m really excited to be a part of their company.
I have big touring plans coming together around this release. I love having a booking agent! Here’s the rough outline:
Feb 18 – 27 – The Midwest. Definitely Iowa City, Madison, and Chicago. We’re building a tour around a confirmed morning radio show on Feb 18 “The Talk of Iowa – Live from The Java House”.
March 2-10 The South. Dallas, Houston, I’d like to take my first stab at New Orleans. I also met a couple from Birmingham at the ACL fest who might help me there. Anyone from Austin to Birmingham want to host a house concert?
March 11-19 SXSW Film and Music festival related activities
March 23 – early April – The East Coast. We’ll return to all of the venues we just covered in November and then carry on up to the way north east.
Mid April – The West Coast
April 25 -May 1 – The UK
May 2 – May 15 – ITALY! Thanks to Ginger Leigh, I’m doing a 2 week tour in ITALY!
Late May – Colorado with the help of the darling Molly Lama.
Then what? Not sure. Depends on where the records are flying. 🙂
I’m probably just writing this so I can think my way through it. I find myself stressing about some of the details. I wonder about my 1997 Geo Metro and whether it will make it. It only has 63,000 miles on it, but it has never seen extreme cold. Ah, to be sponsored by my dream car – a Hybrid Lexus SUV… I won’t be able to bring Buffalo Speedway on all of these tours, as his grown up responsibilities will not let him be away from his day job that much. Not sure who I’m bringing. The Midwest in Mid February!
