Echo Like Empty Rooms – December 15th, 2015

Echo Like Empty Rooms is here!

Echo Like Empty Rooms

 

 

 

 

I’m really excited to share these 5 songs with you. Kevin Fisher and I had a lot of fun putting this together over the last few months. My long-time pal and guitarist extraordinaire Peter Sheppard makes an appearance on several tracks. Many thanks to Tony Renner for the front cover photo and for my daughter Gina, who put all the graphics together for the CD.

It will be available across all the usual digital platforms in the next few weeks, plus you will be able to purchase physical CDs at CDBaby and Amazon after December 15th. Call your favorite record store and let them know…I can get some for them, too! Of course, if you want to buy direct from the source, it’s $6.49 via PayPal. I’ll even sign it if you’d like!

Oh, and note that this is Volume One…Volume Two is already in the works.

Thanks for your support! rtk

Live at Kulak’s Woodshed – Tuesday July 8th

I’ll be appearing at Kulak’s Woodshed in North Hollywood this Tuesday evening (7/8/14) sometime between 7:00p and 10:00p. The set up is similar to an open mic night – bunch of songwriters playing 2 songs each.

You can stream the evening live at the Kulak’s Woodshed website.  I’ll try to post an update to Twitter and Facebook when I’m getting ready to hit the stage.

Check it out and get a preview of a couple songs from the new record!

Dear John: The Sugar Creek Sessions – now available!

In June of 1981, our band Dear John recorded six songs at the newly opened Sugar Creek Studios in Fenton, MO. From the session, we chose “Frustrated Conversation” and “I Don’t Want Her To Know” as the “most Power Pop”, and therefore the best choices for a 45 release. We recently celebrated the 30th anniversary of the release of that single, and now, all 6 songs from that session are available.

There is an extremely Limited Edition 30th Anniversary CD available via CD Baby or purchase a digital downloads from iTunes.

 

OLG appearance cancelled

FYI, there was a scheduling mixup and Jackknifed Big Rig will not be appearing at the Our Lady of Guadalupe festival on 4/28. But if you are in the neighborhood, show up anyway!

The 5/18 Cafe Music Night solo appearance is still happening…hope to see you there!

Next live show: July 23

Summer? Oh, it’s summer alright. We’re going to be in the middle of summer by the time Pete and I return to the Talking Stick at 7pm on Saturday July 23rd. It’s another Cafe Night, a free community outreach event presented by our friends at Venice Santa Monica Free Methodist Church.

We’ll probably add a few new twists, including at least one old Dear John song!

Hope you can come out and enjoy an entire evening of music, food, and good friends.

BTW, you can see a couple videos of Pete and I from our November show here.

The Talking Stick is located at 1411 Lincoln Blvd in Venice, CA.

It’s nestled in the back corner of a mini-mall next to an El Pollo Loco, at the corner of Lincoln and California. There’s plenty of free parking behind the building.
