New Acoustic Pedal Board

Acoustic Pedal Board (2019)

Put together a new acoustic pedal board yesterday.  Pretty much in line with my ongoing quest to simplify/streamline my gear, this board is even more refined than my previous one.  Just four pedals (Radial StageBug, TC Electronic Polytune 2, Mooer Radar with IR from 3 Sigma Audio and a TC Electronic Hall of Fame) all mounted on an Outlaw Effects Nomad Rechargeable Powered Pedal Board.  It’s light, battery powered and most importantly, sounds amazing!

“Who Said It Was Easy?” – Nominated for “Best Instrumental – Acoustic Album” (2019 ZMR Awards)

Pleased as punch that my new album, “Who Said It Was Easy?” has been nominated for “Best Instrumental – Acoustic Album” for the 2019 ZMR Awards!  As the album title alludes, this was a tough record to make, so I’m particularly grateful for the nod.  Thanks to ZMR for the nomination and best wishes to the other nominees!
