Welcome

Spring update 

Have you been interested in hearing me do that music thing I do, but wish you could just watch me do it on PBS instead of traveling to some club or small theater? Well friends.... that opportunity has arrived. I had the chance to chat w/ the awesome Brick Briscoe for his new TV show Any Road TV along with a few other Boston performers (Abbie Barrett, Nate Leavitt and Dan Nicklin). I'm on at the 15 minute mark but I really enjoyed the whole episode, it was a lot of fun to be a part of. You just click on the picture below to watch it.

I'm looking forward to returning to The Outlaw Roadshow this coming Saturday, April 27th at Exhibit A Brewing Company in Framingham, Massachusetts. For more info on the show, click the sign below.

Had a couple of nice write-ups this month regarding the new single "Permanent Crush", including one from Spain. I don't speak Spanish, so I'm just assuming that when I read the words Bruce Springsteen and Townes Van Zandt, they were comparing me favorably to those people. If you speak Spanish and they weren't saying that, lets just keep that to your self : ) You can figure that out by clicking here

There's also a premiere of "Permanent Crush" in Vents Magazine that you can read here.

Not sure a lot of shows in May/early June but a couple of things that will likely be added soon. If you haven't had a chance, please check out my new single wherever you stream music at this link.

Thanks for stopping by!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

April Update 

I'm starting off the month of April with a return to Askew in Providence, Rhode Island on Thursday, April 4th. I'm on early and it's a great bill that also includes Sasquatch and the Jamie Craighead Duo. For more info, visit https://www.facebook.com/events/254260438843840/

I then head to Baton Rouge, Louisiana for a handful of shows at the 3rd Street Songwriters Festival. Visit https://thirdstreetsongwritersfestival.com/ for the line-up and schedule (I'm playing 3 or 4 times I believe).

I'm then waltzing across Texas to perform at the historic Hole in the Wall in downtown Austin. For more info, please visit https://www.holeinthewallaustin.com/

More spring dates have been added as well.

New single "Permanent Crush" is out. 

Check out the new single "Permanent Crush" here and check out a couple of recent reviews of it below.

His latest single, “Permanent Crush” is the former of the two, with just a little bit of Bruce Springsteen working class flavor sprinkled atop. It’s a regular Joe folk rock anthem that’s not much seen in modern music anymore, with anthemic bar-singalong guitars, a shuffling fall dance beat, and York’s own husky vocals, which harkens to the likes of Steve Earle, Townes Van Zandt, and just a little bit of Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem" - Lowell Spin 

Edging ever closer to the heights of songwriters like Lukas Nelson and Justin Townes Earle. If you’re into distinctive song construction, this is for you http://globaltexanchronicles.com/permanent-crush/

For the Sake of the Song

Blue, Congress Street, Portland, ME

Inspired by the late, great Townes Van Zant, songwriters come together for this monthly showcase to enjoy each other's music. The rest of us are just there to listen, have all the feels, and applaud when appropriate. Artists will bring a mix of Americana music featuring bluegrass, folk, classic country, and blues sometimes tinged with the punk and metal backgrounds of some of the performers. Loosely grouped under what's come to be known as Americana music, the common thread to these performances is original songwriting and storytelling. There will normally be two full sets by a mix of local and touring acts, as well as individual performances before, between and maybe after the two headlining acts. These will often be new, recently written songs by engaging songwriters putting their heart into the moment.
