Still waters run deep

When this blog is quiet, you can assume we are busy. There's tons of recording going on – overdubs and guest musicians – and I've taught myself musical notation! At least to the extent that's helpful for writing backing vocals and harmonies. :) I'm no Stravinsky.

We're evolving our approach to live shows and to the lineup, too. From now on, you'll see more variation in terms of who's on stage. We are going to tailor the lineup for the venue and occasion like a jazz act. This will give us greater flexibility in the kinds of shows we can put on and it'll allow us to broaden our range of collaborators. After 10 years and many lineups, The Sexy Accident has become more of a collective than a band anyway. This approach takes it up a notch. You'll still see Dan and Ramone a lot. They're the core. So don't be sad! 

We've got a gig coming up this Saturday, November 7 at Prospero's Books on 39th. Free admission. 8pm. Ramone opens with an acoustic set of his solo tunes, then we take the stage in our electric glory with new collaborator Kyle Dahlquist. Be there! We will be playing songs from every era of the band.

In personal news, I've been eating up Royals baseball and enjoying time with my kids. The weather in Kansas City this fall has been idyllic. All crispy leaves and applesauce. Hope it's similarly lovely for you, wherever you are!

I'm also pleased to announce that I'll be putting together a book for the 2016 POP POETRY series from Spartan Press. More on that as I have it!
