Hello friends! I hope you all had a good weekend. I played in San Antonio on Friday and Houston on Saturday. They were good shows, but I had a rough time because my allergies have been so bad. I had a hard time singing both nights. Anyway, I woke up today feeling better than I have in a couple of weeks. Maybe I'm getting a handle on these allergies which is great because I would love to go out and see some music this week.
Matt The Electrician returns to the show for episode 534! Matt has been releasing a new 7" single featuring two songs per single. Each release is a collaboration with different artists like Dana Falconberry, Little Brave, Wilson Marks Trio and Wood & Wire. I urge you to buy these. They're amazing works of art both visually and musically. find them at mattheelectrician.com
He just toured the west coast with Seela and Little Brave and performed at the 15th annual Austin City Limits Festival. If you live in Austin, Matt will be kicking off "Unplugged on the Front Porch" at All Saints Episcopal Church, this Thursday, October 20th. You can find out all about it at frontporchaustin.org
. Matt and I have a great conversation about making these 7" singles and the collaborations, House of Songs, the songwriting game, keeping a healthy home life while touring and much, much more. I hope you enjoy our conversation. I sure did. Let's get down!
