Hey Everybody! It's been a minute, we've been out in the High-Desert of Southern California for the winter. Ive been writing a bunch of songs and recording the live, no overdubs. Just me and a guitar in my Airstream and some in my shed. out in the middle of the desert. It's gritty, (literally there's sand in all of my gear!) and real and I hope you dig it. The Shed Sessions Vol.1 coming soon to a streaming service near you! and yes it's Vol.1 cause there's a bunch more coming... also I'll be heading back into the studio this summer when we head back to Portland. These will be with the Needs... full band full on!! stoked cant wait... So in the meantime Ive been redesigning the sight and tidying things up a bit. there's a bunch of new content coming in the next few months.... hope your having a great spring!! xoxo JJ.
