Happy holidays!

Hello everyone,

I hope you all have a great time this season celebrating whatever it is that you like to celebrate. I'm enjoying a brief burst of solitude as Stephanie and Toby travel south with Steph's mom to see her sister and aunts and stuff. They'll be back on Christmas Eve.

It's been a crazy month for me, as it is for everyone. Lots of holiday parties and shopping and decorating and weather. Good things. And through it all the Sexy Accident has been rehearsing whenever possible in preparation for album two and our upcoming shows. We've got the final two songs in performance-ready shape. My plan it to play our new album in its entirety live at all of our shows between now and late February, when we head to Chicago.

I'm very thankful for all of the support that our families, fans and friends have given us over the past year. I wanted to take this time to specifically thank, in no particular order, Stephanie (always), Tobias (always), Doug Chandler, Lori Werr, Brigid Steenberge, Clay Vernon, Billy Brown, Scott Krantz, Scott Brown, Mark Hamblin, Chris Drew, Malcolm, my Dad, Helene, Chuckles Whittingtoppolis, Andrew Sallee, Lauriann Hebb, MatVanOrden, and Randy the Christmas Elf.

That's about all I have to say. I'm going to spend the day puttering around, writing songs and intonating guitars. Recharging my batteries, basically. :) Then it's right back into it on Monday! :)

Best wishes,
