I released a new album in April! Jah Will Never Leave I Alone is a collaborative effort with Jah Gumby of Father Psalms Studio. I've been getting a lot of great feedback from you guys about the album, so thank you so much for that. As artists, no matter how far we come, we always have doubts that we are moving in the right direction, so positive reassurance is always appreciated. I wrote a song about my parents on the album, Heartbeat, which is one of my proudest achievements, give it a listen.
We had a great early summer tour with Kimie and Tubby Love, with many memorable moments. We were sorry Cas Haley couldn't make the tour, but look forward to working with him again in the future. We played some amazing festivals and felt such intense Love and support from you guys on the road.
We just returned home from doing a few dates on the west coast with Paula Fuga. We returned to the Beloved Festival, which was completely epic! We also played some great shows in Cali.
Now it's back on the road, for a month this time. I'll be playing the first part of September with my trio doing some southern Cali dates including a Micro Brew Fest with Tribal Seeds and a couple of club dates with JBoog. Then we travel to Minnesota to play Shangri-la which, from what I've been told, should be an amazing experience. After that I'll spend the rest of the month solo, supporting Trevor Hall on his Western U.S. tour. I'm really looking forward to jamming with him, as I'm a big fan. I'll be back home in October and am pleased to announce I'll be opening for one of my musical idols, Raul Midon at the Doris Duke Theatre on October 2nd. Check the shows page for more info, we got a lot of cool stuff in the works and I promise I'll be better about keeping you guys updated.
I'm continuing work on my next album, Love Will Find a Way and I'll let you know as we near having a concrete release date. Can't wait to share all this new music with you family!
