It was a good week for great concerts in Memphis.
Big thanks to my friend Jack Silbert for including me on his Aquarium Playlist! Listen from the Dropbox link below, and check out the playlist here...
Also be sure to peruse his Salt In Wound website for lots of great writing.
Earlier this month, I had the privilege of recording at Sam Phillips in Memphis, TN. It was an amazing experience. So much history there, and lots more to be made.

It seems strange to me that MTV still hosts the Video Music Awards. (Key word here is "video".)
I was recently interviewed for the Tourganic Podcast! Dave Bailis and I had a great conversation about music, touring, food, mediation, exercise, and lots more. Check out Episode 6 from any of the following links. Please be sure to leave a comment and/or subscribe if you like what you hear. Thanks for listening!!
I've been shopping around for gear to start my home studio, and got inspired by this classic pic of Pete Townsend, circa 1970.
"Bandcamp is a platform for artistic expression, and all manner of variance in experience and identity, including gender and sexuality, is welcome here. We support our LGBT+ users and staff, and we stand against any person or group that would see them further marginalized. This includes the current U.S. administration, and its recent capricious declaration that transgender troops will no longer be able to serve in the military. That this announcement was motivated in part to help fund the border wall exposes it as part of the administration’s cynical, discriminatory agenda."

I retuned home yesterday from a 10-day Vipassana meditation retreat. I've been attending about once a year since 2009, and there's always something new to learn. If you'd like to know about the practice, visit the website at dhamma.org/en-US/index
Taking a road trip tomorrow from Tennessee to Illinois for a 10-day Vipassana mediation retreat. I'll be off the grid from July 12th to July 23rd. See you on the flip side.
