W.W. Lowman + Thousand record new album in FR/Chicago, I’m coming for you/Patricia Barber dates/V Day cupcakes
I just arrived back in Brooklyn from a week of writing/recording a new album in Marseille, FR with my brothers, W.W. Lowman and Thousand. It was quite an amazing trip and I can’t say enough good things about the residency program we participated in at Montevideo. The staff there are just genuinely good people and took care of us, and everything we needed for the duration of our stay. As a result, all we had to worry about was making music, which is so rare in grown-up life. In the end, we wrote seven really solid songs from scratch, recorded them, and played a sold out show at the end of the week. And, of course, we had some amazing food and wine along the way! Oh yeah, and lots of Pastis. It was truly inspiring experience and I feel incredibly lucky to have been a part of it. Thank you, Montevideo and W.W, Lowman!
Looking ahead, I’m really excited about getting back together with John Tate (bass) and Devin Drobka (drums) for a midwestern tour in a few weeks. Here’s the dates:
3/19–Bar DeVille (Chicago)
3/20–914 New Music Festival (914 N. California) (Chicago)
3/21–The Jazz Estate (Milwaukee)
3/22–Tonic Tavern (Milwaukee)
3/23–The Fountain (Madison, WI)
I’ve really missed playing with Devin since he relocated to his native city of Milwaukee, so this is going to be special!
Looking farther ahead, I’ll be touring with Patricia Barber in May and June in North America and Europe. Click on her name for specific dates. I, for one, am very excited about Portugal and Norway! I’ll be touring with Ms. Barber through the duration of 2013, so keep checking back for updates.
In the middle of all this, there are a handful of scattered NYC/Brooklyn dates that I’m very much looking forward to with Swimmer and the Lena Bloch 4tet. Music music music!
Oh yeah, and I thought I’d be festive for Valentine’s Day, so I made these chocolate/cinnamon/coffee cupcake with Nutella buttercream frosting!
