T for Texas, T for Tennessee

so finally I am back with some major news to report. I guess I've disappeared for a few months, but in that month, I've written a bunch of tunes, visted just about every relative, seen a bunch of friends, and all but relocated to Nashville, TN. I said "but". I'm still in Texas... for the moment.

Since its been said in articles or whatnot, I figure its safe for me to talk about whats going on with Hacienda. The band is set to record its thrid record. It will be recorded in Nashville, and it begins next week. Dan Auerbach will be wearing the producer's hat once again. Its very exciting to be reuniting again for another record. This time around, I would expect a different sounding record. I would venture to guess it will be a rock 'n roll record. Go figure.

In the last couple of months there have been Hacienda gigs in hotels, solo gigs with my friends CHris and Ken in abandoned wharehouses and bar room floors, and a bunch of demoing. Here are some of the photos. Now its time to get a record done with Hacienda. Next month, I'll be able to talk about a lot more music. This is probably the most excited I've been about music and bands in ages, so I can't wait to share it with everyone.

In the meantime, the songs are written, the demos are done, and its about to get real. For all the gear junkies, I plan on updating as much as I can from the studio next week. Basicall vintage guitars, amps, pedals, and really cool shit. I'll try to keep track of all the gear. Hope everyone's summer has been aces so far.
