...and so little time! Things have been quiet on the blog for the past couple of months, so I figure I'm about due to give you an update on all the going's on here at the DeVita music factory. And my, have there been going's on.
The name of the game at the moment is gig, gig, gig. This summer has been a pretty exciting one so far as the music has been concerned, because my concert schedule is about the fullest that it's ever been. So far this year I've played 14 shows, with another 17 to go over the course of the next month and a half. I've had some awesome times playing at R.S. Taylor & Sons Tap Room, the Argyle Brewing Company Depot, and Backstreet BBQ and Tap Room already this summer, and will be returning to each of those venues one more time near the end of August to finish out the season. Between now and then, of course, there shall be street performances aplenty in Lake George as well. As always, you can find a list of all my upcoming dates on the Shows page.
One of the other most exciting things I've got churning away here right now is on the video front. I've played at the Argyle Brewery twice so far this year, and they do this awesome thing where a freelance video specialist comes in and records the shows, then live streams them onto concertwindow.com. But while that's been a very cool thing in terms of giving people who can't make it all the way up to the ADK foothills access to the shows on the day of, what's far cooler in my not-so-unbiased opinion is that I now have full recordings of both of those shows. What that means for you is that over the course of the next few months, I'll be uploading a ton of new content to my YouTube channel, so if you haven't subscribed already, now is a great time to do so to make sure you don't miss out on any of the new stuff.
Of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't at least mention the album too. The work is ongoing on that front, and I don't like to talk overmuch about works that are still in progress. With how crazy the concert schedule and everything else has been, work has been a little slower on it of late...but I do still hope to release a single this year at the very least (and if the gods are good, the whole-damn-thing).
I think that about covers it for now--though I'm sure there's something I'm forgetting. Time management has been kind of a massive undertaking for me for the past few months, because I've got irons in about ten different fires at any given time. But that's the life of an independent artist, right?!
