The Fencemen Updates


Some noteworthy updates on The Fencemen front:

1. Today the band was pleasantly surprised to see Times Are Alright selected as one of 2012’s best albums on Lansing State Journal‘s website. I may have only contributed to one song on the album, but I’ve been playing with the band just about full time since April 2012. And, personal connections aside, I simply love the album and am happy to see it so well received. (You can read my rave review here.)

2. We contributed a single to Suburban Sprawl Music‘s annual holiday compilation, which can be found here for free. We recorded a Fenced-up cover of John Denver’s “Christmas for Cowboys” (written by Steve Weisberg), and it’s full of prairie-esque ethos. It’s a diverse compilation – including a number by the one and only Andy Dick – full of holiday cheer.

3. We have some shows coming up this month, with more already planned for March. Keep tabs on my itinerary for those dates and others. Furthermore, we’re busy writing and arranging new material. Keep your eyes and ears open…

Tyler and Mike offer a peek behind the creative curtains regarding the band and album. I’m proud to be a (small) part of this album and group, so it’s nice to see some press.
