Rotown Records

If you have a minute, head on over to the newly designed website for our record label, Andy Whorehall did a wonderful job with the site overhaul and re-branding. We were also able to debut a video produced by Bart Bishoff at DoF Media of us performing ‘Kentucky‘ live at The Midwest Sound.

Oh Hello

There is a lot happening as the spring winds it’s way around this year. I am in the Middle of co-producing a new record for Daniel and The Lion with Darren Garvey at The Midwest Sound. Justin Perkins will be mixing/mastering for us and you should be hearing something by the middle of May. I have also been busy recording new instrumental pieces for videos and doing various other sessions. I will post some new audio over at The Midwest Sound site soon. We have had a great run of shows with Miles Nielsen and The Rusted Hearts these past couple months and have a lot coming up over the summer. I will be continuing to add dates over the next few weeks. Cheers!

The Midwest Sound

A few of us have slowly and quietly been building a studio space in a farm house. Now, it’s pretty much complete. We are calling it The Midwest Sound.


Busy fall so far. Working on recordings with Hayward Williams, Archie Powell and The Exports, Ron Rawhoof and Trapper Schoepp and The Shades. Last night we played the first of two gigs this month with the Bun E. Carlos Monday Night Band. We had a really great time and are playing another show at The Adriatic here in Rockford on Monday, Oct. 24th.

Miles Nielsen Presents The Rusted Hearts made its way into the public world today via our new online store: RUSTED TRUNK. Check it out and buy some stuff. Digital, Vinyl and CD versions of the new record and more.
