News & Such…

I had the great good fortune to be a part of a film class at Watkins College of Art, Design & Film​ here in Nashville that took one of my songs from ROUTE 41 and turned it into a music video. My first ever! I can’t say enough about the commitment, focus, and talent of all the students involved, especially Director Roxanne Nawrot. Thank you Prof. Ron Coons​ for making this happen. It deserves a build up and “premiere” but I think I’m gonna just lay it on ya. Perfect timing to present a new video since it looks like I’m headed back across the Pond in October!
