“Since Brightwood Music (http://brightwoodmusic.net/?page_id=2) has been supplying me with Doug Armitage’s phenomenally deep & unique sounding fiddles, I’ve been returning to more of a folk mindset. Plus, after the last month of final work on RIFTSKETCHES, I’m ready to sing again; my studio time is turning toward focus on PHOENIX ROAD the sister album to VISCERALINE that I’ve been working on since I laid those grim sessions down in Austin. This is the material I finished on the road in my first long tour with Seth Walker. It’s still an adventure in the shadowtree, but it’s a swift, wistfully hopeful climb. (Or at least it will be if I can keep the final arrangements from getting too heavy & sticky! Wish me luck and stay tuned!)”
So there it is. As plans are being drawn up, well, all we have to say for now is be ready for a full length holiday release from the mountain studio.
