CONTENT CREATORS COALITION EVENT at
Le Poisson Rouge, NYC on FEBRUARY 25th
This is a great one - I'm going to perform with REM's Mike Mills at an event to raise awareness for the great CCC, of which I'm proud to be a part. We're trying to get RESPECT for artists so that the content they create is treated as the precious, valuable commodity that it is.

FIRST MUDVILLE SHOW NEXT FRIDAY, MAY 3 IN ATLANTA
Next Friday night, May 3rd at 9:00 pm Mudville performs at a special gallery show featuring the artists of the Fine Arts Workshop Atelier in Atlanta, GA. It's also my birthday, and there will be wine and food for all, included in the $20 ticket price.
Rehearsed yesterday with "Mudville South", which is Colin Agnew on drums and Chris Case on keyboards. Those guys are badass! Benny Cha Cha will, of course, play bass, it isn't Mudville without that. Seating is very limited, so we suggest you buy tickets in advance. Doors open for the gallery show at 8:00.

RECORDING LITTLE GENIUS FOLLOWUP
Finally back in the studio, have ten songs written and starting to come together. I've decided to call it Leaves, Sadness, Science. I recently saw a Frida Kahlo exhibit in Atlanta, there were colored rooms painted according to the emotions Frida associated with different colors. Yellow was madness, blue was peace, and green was "leaves, sadness, science". The songs are a story of New York.
PILGRIMAGE TO MEMPHIS
Just returned from a few days in Memphis, where I'd never been. Visited the birthplace of soul and soaked up the blues. Had a conversation with the King's ghost at Graceland, I had to confess my disappointment with his legacy and his particularly graceless home. Read it HERE
NEW MUDVILLE SHOWS ADDED!
Saturday, June 15, 8:30 pm - Serendipity, Bloomington, IN
Another clip from the great FX drama series "Regenesis", this one features Mudville's song "The Hero of the World" from The Glory of Man is Not in Vogue. The fallen hero returns to the fold. Perfect!
Taking an infinitesimal break 'til after New Year's, back in the studio with Benny Cha Cha recording more new Mudville soon.. New Year's is the only meaningful holiday besides those witchy solstices and that day when everyone talks like a pirate. Think positive thoughts about the future, plan something scandalous, forgive some old grudges.
NEW BLUE NOTE VIDEO
First video from my recent Blue Note show in March, 2012, live with the Dred Scott Trio - this was a chilled-out version of Joni Mitchell's "Black Crow" from her great Hejira album
