Getting There (Wherever That Is)

Greetings Folks,

So many things have been going on in Your Friendly Neighborhood Christian Country. Pretty much as soon as I announced that I’d be taking a hiatus from MANIFEST to focus on completing my record, my dance card started filling up with a number of performances and other opportunities. I’m not complaining in the least, it’s just been really interesting.

I had the honor and privilege of being a special guest for Gabriel Newell’s performance during The Road to Nightfall competition. That was tremendous fun, the energy was incredible, and it was a really humbling experience. I’m really glad to have known Gabriel over the years and to witness the quality of the band he has. Those brothers kick out the jams.


This past Friday night, Ms. Amber Fults and her band WON the whole shebangabang. They’ll be headlining a Nightfall date this year. I’m also so proud to see how much effort they’ve put in, and, at the end of the day, to call them friends. Be on the lookout for when they take the stage at Miller Plaza!

Over the course of this past weekend, I performed in Act II: Mudita and at Jerry Allen’s Poetry & Punchlines show. Both were immensely fun. Act II took place at Barking Legs, and I got to share the stage with multi-instrumentalist Robin Burk, dancer Eliza Luminara, and comedian/actor/storyteller Andy Pyburn. Each of us brought something distinctly different to the stage, and it was really interesting to witness.

At Poetry & Punchlines, it was great to see how the show shaped up. Things kicked off with some improve comedy before I got into my set. This was my first time at Mocha (I know that I’m extremely late), but I really enjoy what they’ve done with the space since it was Melanie’s about ten or so years ago. My set went well, and it was cool to see Tommy Bottoms and Odell perform as well as grab a bit of face time with the both of them after the show.

Switching gears, I’m so excited about hitting the Terminal West stage in Atlanta on April 20th! I would absolutely love to see some Chattanooga faces out there as well as some of my ATLiens in the crowd. I’ve got a few special tricks up my sleeve for the occasion, too. Tickets can be purchased here: http://www.rawartists.org/atlanta/marvel/?artist=128773

Well, that’s all I’ve got time for right now. Be good, stay healthy, and I hope to see you in ATL if not before.
