Happy end of 2012 to you all!
I haven't had the pleasure of seeing some of you this year - for the most part I've been off the road and in the studio working on my next album. It's been a joy and a journey full of rich experiences this time around. I hope to share lots of new music with all of you in 2013.
The "Melancholy and the Infinite Shadness" EP was a lot of fun to make - check it out if you haven't yet! Big shout to GARY for his work behind the camera and huge thanks to everyone who took a listen. http://shadk.bandcamp.com/album/melancholy-and-the-infinite-shadness
Not much else to say here, just wanted to extend a huge internet hi-five for another year of your tremendous support. I don't interact much in the social media space but know that I dearly appreciate your listens, notes, re-posts, etc. You inspire me every day to be better at music and at life.
Be safe tonight and best wishes for your 2013!
