En-route to L.A for the Santa Robada music video screening at Filmapalooza and a couple shows with fellow songwriter/guitarist Alex Maryol. Just got the videos of our impromptu nature session in the Albuquerque Bosque a few weeks back with Alex and vocalist Leah Black. It’s a little windy and such, but I love the honesty of playing music outside by the river and bosque… hope you enjoy.
