Happy Leap Year (yesterday) everybody! On March 1st, I hope everybody got out and voted ! The times they are a changin’ and yes Dylan, they still are. November’s election is very important, be there.

February was amazing this year! The SiriusXM Outlaw Country Cruise to the Cayman Islands was filled with music fanatics and killer bands. Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle, the Mavericks and more. I was blessed with a great team of musicians with me: David Phenicie on bass and amazing vocals; young drum king, Victor Ziolkowski; and the very rockin’, T Jarrod Bonta on keys.

If you caught me on the cruise or if you catch me live soon, you’ll get a taste of my new sizzling blues tunes, hot off the pen. I took the fall to stay busy writing and recording so I hope to get the new record to you the listeners asap! But for now, I am getting ready for the Springtime by heading out west for a few shows. Sacramento to San Diego. LA and Costa Mesa, just a short fun run!

I’ll be back in time for Austin’s SXSW. I’m only playing on Friday the 18th this year. Catch me at 12:45pm-1:15pm just before Robbie Fulks at Yard Dog on South Congress Ave. for the Bloodshot Records party, and later that night-7:30pm to 8:30pm at the White Horse. I will love taking it easier this year so I can catch a band if I want to or show some friends around. So there you are… two chances to see my show during SXRF.

The “Nashville Boogie” in May is getting closer, man! That weekender is what everyone is talking about, seems like everyone I know is coming! May 12th-15th. I’m happy to be on the bill so I can see all my favorite bands. Last year I got to sit in with The Paladins and Nikki Hill! Fun things happen when great people show up. Hey, even Chris Isaak will make this party!

Back to ya in the summer! Bring it on! Cheers, Rosie
