As you can probably tell:

1) I now have Instagram. Check it out for tour pics and sometimes pictures of my cat.

2) Gangstagrass had an awesome time at the Justified wrap party. What a great group of people!

American Music is out!

American Music

You can be the proud owner of the latest installment in the Song of Bluegrass and Hip-Hop book series that the New York Times calls “better than Game of Thrones. Seriously, they come out with a new album more reliably than George Railroad Martin (his real name), and when they promise dragons, Gangstagrass delivers dragons.”

And indeed, there are dragons in our newest album. And political intrigue! And swords, and each of us has a pet wolf.

But I’m preaching to the choir! Y’all must have already preordered your copies, or stolen them from the warehouse in Harlan where we get them printed up, so you know exactly how many dragons there are or aren’t.

For the rest of you, though, there’s only one way to get your hands on the album people have been calling “the Iron Throne of Westeros” – well, I guess there are several ways, but this one works just fine. Click on it!

PS for the Bardians out there: This album features both Dan Whitener ’09 & Soul Khan ’07! On the same track, even!

Pour a Sip – New Song from Gangstagrass

Gangstagrass Mini-Documentary by Keith Lane

Thanks to Keith Lane and his team for capturing a particularly special Gangstagrass moment for me–playing music in my hometown, Washington D.C.

Find out from Rench himself how this group of superhero musicians came to combine their powers for the good of the bluegrass hip-hop world.


Final Gangastagrass Tour of 2014

And thus ends the final Gangstagrass tour of 2014, marking the second year of my tenure in this great outfit.
Keep one eye open for upcoming 2015 tour dates as they develop…
…and the other eye open for some endeavors of my own design! Who knows what that may be? Surely not me!

Playing with the Rogue Diplomats at Musikfest

Is it too late for Throwback Thursday? Had a blast playing with the Rogue Diplomats for a song or two during Musikfest.

At Grey Fox 2014 – Yesterday


This picture was taken moments before I played on the main stage at Grey Fox for the first time.
More to come. And we’re playing again tonight at 10:15 at the dance tent.
