Hey everyone...I know I've been a bit of a hermit this winter but it was necessary for me to hibernate from the cyber world and focus on one task...skiing. All things considered I had a good season, not great, but good. Unfortunately I was not given many opportunities on the world cup this season as I only raced Lake Louise, Bormio, and Kitzbuhel. It's extremely tough to perform on the world cup circuit unless you are on it full time, and I fell into the part time category (I was racing europa cups and nor-ams as well). The good news is that I had a very successful europa cup and nor-am season, and earned a world cup spot in downhill for next season. If I want it, it's there!
As for music, once the season ended I started playing a lot of shows and put together a short Mountain Tour through Colorado and Utah to promote our new album "Matchstick Memories." So far we have received a warm response and our first single "Spring Cleaning" is getting some play time on Sirius/XM's Coffeehouse channel! I you want to check it out you listen to some songs on myspace
or order it from our website
. We are also playing at the Desert Rocks
Music Festival in Moab, Utah on May 24th!
As for the in between, I'm planning a surf trip to Nicaragua with some friends in May, which is going to be unreal! I can't wait to get back on the board and let the snow melt back home while I surf some warm water. It's often overlooked how important it is to decompress after a long season and hopefully it will inspire me to write more songs as I've already started writing for the next album.
Hope this finds you well...
