Monocle Band successful on kickstarter!

Monocle Band successfully raised over $13,000 dollars to help fund their second full-length album.  If you know Monocle Band, you know that this album has been a long time coming.  We've been writing new songs non-stop for three and a half years and are ready to put 'em in print and show the world what we've been working so hard towards!  THANK YOU to all of the fan, friends, and family who helped us along the way.  What a ride!

Monocle Band is making their 2nd album and you can be a part of it!

I am so excited to announce the launch of Monocle Band's Kickstarter!  Four years ago, we launched a successful kickstarter campaign that funded our first album.  That record lifted us out of the clubs and got us on some wonderful festival stages all over the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Northwest.  I am so proud of our work and SO excited to be making another album!  With these past four years, Bill Huston and myself have written MANY new songs and are pumped to lay it all down on a brand new album.  We have a fresh lineup in tow and a wonderful producer recording us and giving us some awesome creative input.  This album is going to sparkle!  Through Kickstarter, our fans, friends and family have  a chance to not only help us make the album, but also get lots of goodies in return!  Please click this link and consider making a contribution to a wonderful and creative project!

2016 has wound me up tight, spun me around and is currently spitting me out!  The product of the whirlwind called this calendar year is some full circleness and musical goodness all around.  Here's what's up! 

Monocle Band will be recording a new album with a brand new line up come November!  All fresh tunes, written by myself and Bill Huston, new band, new studio and new producer.  Life has been breathed back into Monocle and I couldn't be more excited to return to the studio for our sophomore album!  

I continue to play with Eric Wiggs as Honeytree Duo and we will also be hitting the studio soon to record a small EP!  Wonderful to explore folk acoustic music with the 2016 Rocky Grass Guitar Champ! 

In attempt to grow as a musician, performer and well-rounded human, catch me at a few solo performances coming up this week!  I am excited to collaborate with so many wonderful musicians and break out of my normal routine.  It's fun, it's scary, but mostly it's a great hang and amazing music.
