Hi all,

So, I inserted the word ‘summer’ into and the outcome was pretty great….

‘dog days’
‘sunny season’
‘fritter away time’
‘picnic days’
‘sit on one’s hands’

and my favorite:
‘riot time’

I do love this season – it feels like everyone chills out a little bit and enjoys being outside, and sweating, and getting some sun, and bbqs, and road trips, and camping with the family… it’s great!

So, in celebration of those things, I’m releasing 4 new ‘B-sides’ (I also inserted that word into…

‘other side of the coin’
‘flip side’

Starting on Tuesday, June 15, 2010 I will release the first one on iTunes. The following 3 Tuesdays will have a new song as well.
Song descriptions and individual artwork will go out each week in a newsblast I’ll send out to remind everyone.

I’ll be heading out for Cornerstone (get tickets here) July 1 in Marietta, IL and will continue for the following week to play some shows as well as one or two of these new tunes.

See you on the road!



Tigerwine 2020

A Disparate Vintage

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Comrades 2020

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
