Hello friends. Greetings from my Alberta quarantine headquarters during what is now pandemic week infinity. While you will notice an almost empty tour dates page (!) it will be updated soon, since most of our shows are not cancelled, merely postponed to some time in 2021. Note a new solo livestream concert listed there, though for Thursday August 20th.
Now the big news: on the heels of our 14th #1 song (and our first with the new lineup), "We Needed This Ride" we've released a new for Mountain Home called "Leave it at the Gate." They subject may seem ironic now, since it's sort of about not taking your work home with you, just as a lot of people are working from home. Leaving your work "at the gate" may have more appeal than ever! For this song, I've returned to my longtime writing partnership with former bandmember Jon Weisberger. There's a link for the new song on the home page but here it is, too: https://clg.lnk.to/CJND-Gate-s Wherever it is you choose to stream or download our music, we really appreciate it. Also, please follow us on the streaming platform of your choice.
Other big news: Mark Stoffel, who has recently signed a solo recording deal with our label Mountain Home has released his first single and video called "Shadowbands." among other fine musicians, this one features brilliant Irish fiddler NIall Murphy. We met Niall when we were playing in Cookstown, Northern Ireland a few years ago and we got a chance to jam some with him after our show. Here's the video:
Well, check back here for more updates. Feel free to request "Leave it at the Gate" and "Shadowbands" from the DJ or your choice (even me ;) ), and please stay safe and well.
