Incidentally, I have a cover song playlist on The YouTubes. The below link will take you there, also to the most recent song I put on it. Looks like there are 8…seems like there should be more. I know I’ve shot more than that. Maybe I’ll get around to editing some of ’em before our collective untimely demise!
Hey, Pandora accepted one of my albums…everything’s coming up Dale Wicks!
Good mornin’, happy campers. Every-wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeere!!!
I collaborated on a 5-song EP with Grand Rapids music legend Honest John Kowalko. He wrote all the songs, I made all the sounds, and…sounds pretty good, we both believe. Here ’tis.
Well, the new album is out & in my hot little hand, and I’m (knock on wood) about to play my first show in over 2 months (Northern counties, including whichever county St. Ambrose Cellars is in, open a week early). I’m sure it’s just like riding a bike. To catch you up, I’ve been working a non-music job stocking groceries 3rd shift at Meijer just to keep money rollin’ in, so I’m really excited to get back out there. One day soon, I will quit my job (again) & start playing music full-time (again).
Hey everyone! My wife (oh yes. I’m married now. That should probably have been news on here, hunh?) took some video when I was at GR Live last week, and I put it all up on my YouTube channel. Yay content! Here are some links:

Brian Vander Ark has a contest where every month, he picks a video of an artist covering one of his songs from a pool of entrants to be the be that month’s winner and get a chance to compete for the grand prize. This month, it was me! Here’s my video:
I’m pretty excited…I was a huge Verve Pipe fan in high school, and Brian has continued to be a fabulous songwriter all his life, so to be honored by someone I admire is fulfilling.
This is due to weather…the staff was on top of this one and let me know so I didn’t have to drive out. So if you read this, it’ll be the one time I ask you NOT to go to one of my shows! We’ve rescheduled for May 20th, so I hope to see you there instead. Be safe and well.
Hey, my music’s in a movie! The film’s called “Ten Miles Back”, directed by Matthew Douglas Grzeszak, and I’m heading to see it at Celebration Woodland in a couple of hours. I obviously don’t know anything about the film itself, but I’m still super-excited. I’ll let you know how it all shakes down; the songs in it are going to be “House On Fire” and “Murder Ballads.”
