It's been a minute since I last wrote, but I've got a really good reason. For those of you who haven't heard I am most thrilled, tickled, happy, proud (and so many more superlative adjectives) to announce that I've joined the Ropeadope Records family (Does that mean I get to call the other artists on the label Grammy winners Snarky Puppy, Grammy-nominated Christian Scott Atunde Adjuah, Grammy Award winner Eddie Palmieri, Terrace Martin and all those other dope folk brother and sister??). We will be releasing NoteSpeak in March 2020, so have been all kinds of busy preparing for that and rehearsing for our upcoming dates in Verona, Austria and Prague with the new touring band.
