so there’s an organization called the voice project that has artists covering artists to support the women and peace movement in uganda. this is a video of my friends joey ryan & kenneth pattengale covering my tune “ghost town.” they sound wonderful, and it makes me remember that a song is a malleable thing that can be rediscovered in new (and especially talented) hands.  you can learn more about the voice project here.

As promised, here are my Summer tour dates. I’ll be co-headlining on most of these dates with my buddy Greg Laswell, and we have the great Harper Blynn opening the shows. It’s gonna to be a fun summer with the fellas, and I’m getting to hit a lot of towns I’ve never been to before. Also, we’re trying to keep ticket prices under $15 and as low as $10 in some places so you’re getting bang for your buck. You can order tickets and get posters below (feel free to plaster your town with them :) 

This is just the first leg of my 2010 U.S. Tour. If your town isn’t on this list, don’t you worry - I’m going to be back on the road this fall to hit all the cities we’re not going to this time around.  With the record and the road, I’m just getting started.  

Be good,

p.s.  Oh, and the “Ghost Town” video premieres on VEVO (YouTube’s new music channel) June 22nd and the new record is available for only $5 (!!) on Amazon for the month of June.

Here’s video for “Ghost Town” off my new record “Under Control.” From a treatment by director Kyle Eaton and me, it’s the story of what happens when creativity gets the best of you, leading to chaos, cities on fire, and of course… a giant ro-building-bot attacked by tanks and helicopters :) Hope you enjoy it!

p.s. And the record is available for only $5 on Amazon in June.

Well, hello there.  

I’m loving this tour with my buddies Greg Laswell and the band Harper Blynn (you have to see these guys - such an amazing live act!).  We last played to a great crowd in Chicago and then had a couple days off, during which I crashed a wedding reception and even got up on the mike.  I sense a summer movie double feature is in my near future…  

1 / WEST COAST TOUR DATES IN AUGUST - I’ve extended this tour down the West Coast - Vancouver, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, LA, and San Diego - with Harper Blynn opening.  Come on out!  New dates…

August 17 @ 9pm - SEATTLE, WA / TRACTOR TAVERN (21 and up) - BUY TIX

August 18 @ 8pm - PORTLAND, OR / DOUG FIR (21 and up) - BUY TIX

August 20 @ 9pm - SAN FRANCISCO, CA / RED DEVIL LOUNGE (21 and up) - BUY TIX

3 / “GHOST TOWN” VIDEO HITS 200K ON YOUTUBE - Thanks to you guys telling your friends, the “Ghost Town” video has hit over 200,000 plays and is still going strong.  Thanks to director Kyle Eaton and the crew for all of their hard work (i.e. no budget) and making robots work when you least expect it.  You can check out the video here… http://www.carybrothers.com  

Thanks, and I hope to see you on the road…  

Be good,
