Over the past two years, I've been playing solo acoustic shows here in New York. It's been a wonderful experience to be able to gather up my guitar and take the subway or walk to every show. Since the end of 2004, I haven't played with a group of other musicians except on very rare occasions, all of which I've appreciated immensely. I'm really looking forward to getting out to Colorado and having the ability to put together a band in earnest again, learning new things from other musicians, sharing the energy that exists when a group of people play the same song together - you know, 'rockin out', as they say. I know it will take some time to meet people, find a place to practice, and all the other logistics that accompany such an endeavor - but I'm optimistic that it will all come together eventually.
