crankshaftHello everyone!
In less than a week I'll be traveling down to the heart of the Mississippi Delta to a town called Clarksdale to perform as a one-man band at the Juke Joint Festival! This is the town where highways 61 and 59 meet to make the famous "crossroads" where legend has it that Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his lightning fast guitar skills. To my knowledge I'll be the only Minnesota musician booked down there, so this is definitely an honor for me! 
Last Sunday Keith and I advanced to the final round of Famous Dave's Battle of the Blues Bands, which just happens to land on the same weekend as the Juke Joint Festival! This has created some crazy logistics for me and my family. This is what we came up with: My dad agreed to drive down to Clarksdale, MS, with me for the festival during Friday and Saturday. Then on Sunday morning he's going to drop me off at the Memphis airport, and I'm going to fly back to Minneapolis, while he drives the camper back home. When I land, my mom is going to pick me up at the airport and literally bring me straight to Dave's to compete at the final Battle! Yes, it will be a marathon, but hopefully it will be a worthwhile one. I'm pretty confident that my band and I can win!
I've also set a plan in motion to record another full length album! We'll be recording the guitar, upright bass, and drum tracks live during the first week of June in a early 1900's wood barn about 40 minutes northwest of Minneapolis. This will be the first album that I'll be hiring a national publicist for too! I'm aiming for a November or December release. Last weekend "327" was played on NPR's Car Talk as a bumper track. This is the second song from the album Junkyard Rhythm that they've played in the last three months! The next album is going to blow the last out of the water in both writing and song arrangement, so I'm pretty excited to see what kind of momentum it will create if songs from Junkyard Rhythm are getting national play! I hope you've been well, 'til next time, keep the knob cranked!

p.s. we signed up for a contest that is giving away 25k to the top artist, you are allowed to vote for any band signed up every hour, you can sign in via Facebook or Email, please take a minute to vote! http://artistsignal.com/crankshaftmusic
