Episode 672: Wilson Marks

• February 21st, 2018

Hello friends. I have some sad news... we said goodbye to our sweet Greyhound, Dylan on Monday. You've heard me talk about him since the show started. Over the last year, he's not been doing well but he's been hanging in there. I think he hung in there because he loved his mommy, his brother Taylor and me so much. I loved Dylan so much and just wanted to let the world know the amount of joy that this strange and beautiful creature brought to our lives. I love you, Dylan. I always will.

My guest for episode 672 is guitarist/songwriter/educator and all around awesome guy, Wilson Marks! Some of you might know Wilson from being the guitar player for The Love Leighs, McMercy Family Band or Sarah Sharp. Well, Wilson is also a great songwriter and he's releasing his brand new album, Peregrine on Saturday, February 24th. The first single, "Rainbows" is out now. We also premier a brand new song, "Traveling Song" at the end of the show. He's also celebrating the release at The Cactus Cafe' here in Austin on Saturday, February 24th as well. Go to wilsonmarks.com for ticket info and all of your Wilson Marks needs. I had a great time getting to know Wilson. I'm sure you will too. Let's get down!
