- Please tell us about your upcoming tour dates. As festival season is winding down I will be performing locally, including at MI Fest in Brooklyn, Michigan, on September 17, which I’m really excited about. It’s a new outdoor music and camping festival with lots of amazing artists like Jack White and The Raconteurs, Sheryl Crow, Ronnie Dunn and Bear Lake. You can get tickets to see me at www.mi-fest.com. After that I’m heading to Nashville in October and then straight in to the studio in November to work on my 8th release “Sunflower Girl”. If you had only five minutes on earth to perform one song that could leave a great impact on the world today, what song would you perform and why did you choose this particular piece? A song I wrote a few years ago, “Live Like There’s No Tomorrow”. I would choose this song because it encourages people to live life to the fullest TODAY do not put off anything, no passion is too small or too big to go after. And it also respects the little things in life that are often taken for granted i.e., family, friends, history, piece of mind, etc. As an artist, is there anything special you hope to be able to accomplish? I have always just wanted to reach people. My dad once said “people pay (to see you) to forget their problems for awhile”. If I can transcend people for a few hours – just to enjoy themselves, forget their woes, and take them on a musical journey for a little while, then I have accomplished my goals. Thinking back to the very beginning of the band, how do you feel about your performance today and it is much different for you now than when you first started performing. I am more comfortable on stage then I am in the real world. That did take time. I definitely didn’t feel that way at the beginning of my career. But now, once I step on that stage, the world is mine – and it feels good, really good.
