With Peter and Sierra

So during my week in the Big Apple, New York City during the last week of July for my Subculture gigs I got to see two very special people.  Funny enough with both of these unparralled talents, we individually have been talking about some ideas of collaborating.  So here's Sierra Boggess and I backstage at Subculture before she joined me on stage for the final night.  Peter Joback also joined me for just the final show as he kindly rushed after two shows and an eight show week to make it in time for the encore and sing with me.  Here is our rehearsal video of us running through it as we discussed some ideas.  Funny enough, when we did this rehearsal, we hadn't planned on Peter joining me because of his schedule.  What a treat these two individuals are.

Till I Hear You Sing

Here's a little ditty from way back when.  Really enjoyed making this video and working with Sierra, of course and the amazing director and all around artistic genius, Phil Griffin

 

 

On Show People with Paul Wontorek

Taking some time during the last stint of Broadgrass shows in New York to visit Broadway.com officies in Times Square to speak with Paul Wontorek.  Thanks Broadway.com

 

 

Reminder - with Yu Shirota

During the Four Stars concert series in Japan I was grateful to learn some of Mumford and Sons' Reminder in Japanese and got to share it with the audience. As the tour went on this song evolved and my friend and star Yu Shirota stepped up one night to added some harmonies. We had a little jam with it backstage on our final day. Love that guy and miss him very much.

 

 

Ramin - Yankee Stadium Anthems

So, here is the stadium's feed of the anthem's that I was honored to be asked to do.  What a day that was.  

 

 

More US rehearsal tour footage

MAY THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN

Here we are with another clip of me preparing the tour with they boys.  I learned about this song on my last tour and it reminded me of some of the traditional songs I heard as a kid growing up in Peterborough, Ontario.  I think this will be a nice moment in the show to get all on stage singing.  That is if we .... well .. more I .. can remember the verse and chorus'.  This was at the end of a long day however.  ha.  So this may pop up somewhere on the road.  

Broadway to Bluegrass - Texas Rehearsals

Working in Coleman on my new song Stems of Hope.  Just need my piano part added but this has started to go down well at the shows and it's a lot of fun to play.    Didn't realise the light coming on until watching this video back.  The band  clocked it though.  Weird.

EMPTY CHAIRS AT EMPTY TABLES

 

Nothing much to say about this other than that we love playing this.
