Fall 2011 News!

Posted on 09/03/11 by DVS*

After an amazing summer of playing festivals 13 out of 14 weekends in a row, I’m back in the clubs this fall.

The remainder of “Coming Up For Air’” will drop in late October/ Early November, and be a double album (yes, in an age of singles and ep’s, I’m releasing a double album).

On the tour front: I’ll be hitting several new places, as well as some old favorites. Due to popular demand, I’ve also been added to all 4 nights in Colorado with my man emancipator! I’ll be opening each night, and most likely joining him for parts of his set as well!
