Hey guys,

I've been busy recently rehearsing and performing with my new bluegrass band, Mile Twelve. We have plenty of upcoming gigs in the New England area as well as a short tour of B.C Canada this spring. We're also getting ready to head into the studio to record our debut EP.

Check out our website to see, hear and read about us:
