One of the things I've missed as a solo artist is the collaboration and excitement of another group. That being said, I've been lucky enough to partner with Chicago singer/songwriter Eric Howell in his full-band project King Mixer. I'll be performing with the band as a guitarist and second vocalist. Be prepared for some wonderful Beatles-level harmonies and jangly power pop.
This does not preclude nor replace my continued solo efforts, which are very much in full swing and readying my next original music CD.
