2016 Stuff: Terri Clark, RyLee Madison house concerts, Nashville Bass Tracks
Hello again from our humble home / studio just north of downtown Nashville, TN! Hard to believe that we are almost halfway thru 2016 already. But it’s been a great year so far and there are still a lot of cool things to come.
I’ve been touring with Terri Clark for 6 years now, playing bass and singing in her band. And that’s 6 years of good laughs as well! While laughter is always a good medicine and sometimes just necessary for survival on the road, it comes easily and naturally with TC and this wonderful group of people in the band and crew. We’ve already had a few good runs on the road this year but we’ll be cranking it, for sure, from the end of June thru the month of July and part of August. Wondering where we’ll be? Well, wonder no more… FYI, all dates are with Terri Clark except for July 14-17 when I will be on the road with my beautiful and talented wife RyLee Madison.

In January, my wife RyLee Madison and I completed a very successful run of house concerts in Florida. I love real “grass roots” promotion as word is getting around about what RyLee and I do and we have already been booked for return engagements at a couple of those venues for January 2017! RyLee and I are planning to be in Florida for about a month or so, so… We look forward to connecting with many more people for these intimate house concerts and having some great experiences. If you’re interested, or at least curious, in hosting a house concert, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’ve also been very busy in my home studio, churning out bass tracks for clients around the globe, providing professional bass tracks for music sent to me by songwriters, artists, producers and publishers. Having the ability to be a part of the collaborative process and recording bass parts from the confines of my home studio is a wonderful blessing. My website is www.nashvillebasstracks.com.
As always, I’m incredibly grateful for the work I get to do (and love to do!) and for the people with whom I get to work. Thanks to all of you who are a part of this journey!
Peace and low notes,
