The countdown is on!

Happy new year y’all! So as you know, I’ve got new music coming to you this year – first up I’m releasing my singles “Thank You” and “Sugar” on February 26! This is a digital only release, and you’ll hear both of these songs on my next full-length album (look for news on that later in 2016)!

I can’t wait for you to hear these songs because they really take my sound in a new direction. They’re much more soulful, and because of that the decision to record at the legendary Royal Studios was a no-brainer! Here’s what else you can look forward to in the next few weeks…

  • More behind the scenes videos from the making of the singles
  • My first tour of 2016! I’ll be in Nashville, St. Louis, Kansas City and more cities to be announced soon – get the details here.
  • I’m so excited to head back to Folk Alliance International conference and festival this February! This was one of the highlights of my year in 2015 and I’ll be showcasing three nights in a row at The Folk Fiesta (Suite 615 if you’re headed to KC – come see me)!
  • And of course, last but not least – look for details on the Memphis release show for “Thank You” and “Sugar” coming soon! I am so excited about these songs and can’t wait to celebrate them with y’all!

I am so excited to share that I’ve got two new singles coming your way in 2016! “Thank You” and B-side “Sugar” will be released on February 26! I’m heading to the legendary Royal Studios (think Al Green, Ann Peebles, Uptown Funk!) this weekend to record these songs, and they’re going to have even more soul than anything I’ve done before. I cannot wait to share this music with you!

And of course, it would be possible without the incredible players who will be joining me at Royal on Saturday – I’ve got Rick Steff on organ/keys, Ori Naftaly and Josh Roberts on guitar, Jesse Dakota on drums, Poyee Yancy on bass, Mark Franklin on trumpet, Victor Sawyer on trombone, and Art Edmaiston on sax! With players like these, y’all know these singles are gonna be great!

Here’s the official single artwork – stay tuned!
