Overview

"I was thinking back to some of my favorite concerts over the years, and I realized how many took place in spaces that were special in their own right. Cathedrals, synagogues, strange and storied theaters, each bring a special kind of glow to the performance.  

 

I was also feeling the urge to play some of my quieter, more narrative songs that I may not always get the chance to perform during larger rock shows.  

 

So I decided to put together a tour that would allow me to play these songs, and some new ones that I’ve been writing, in some of these beautiful spaces. I decided to call the tour “A Book of Gold Thrown Open."  

 

I'll mainly be solo, but it’ll be a fun chance to have a few special guests and accompaniment.  And most of all, I’m looking forward to singing these songs.

 

I hope you can make it!  Rock on, and thank you.
