WILD KNIGHTS AVAILABLE TODAY - 7/14/15
John Cougar Mellencamp said it best…or maybe it was Van Morrison ;) THE WILD KNIGHT IS CALLING!!!! Answer the call and get AQUEDUCT WILD KNIGHTS HERE!
I am unbelievably excited to be releasing my new album today July 14th 2015, on what will be remembered as a truly historic day. Just as Wild Knights has been 8 long years in the making, the irony of the passage of time is not lost on me this day…
- Harper Lee’s Go Set A Watchmen released today 55 years after after her first and only novel was published.
- US & the World reach a landmark nuclear proliferation agreement with Iran, a deal taking over 15 years to reach.
- NASA’s New Horizon Spacecraft passes Pluto, the last planet in our known solar System, on a 10 year, 4+ billion mile journey.
- Aqueduct Wild Knights is released to the world, first new album since 2007
Okay, Okay, maybe that’s throwing myself in with some pretty big company, but for me, Wild Knights is an enormous accomplishment that I am honored to be releasing to very wonderful and patient fans! The new album is available on Vinyl, CD or Digital and can be purchased directly from me on the Aqueduct Bandcamp site or from other digital outlets.
Seattle get ready for the big album release show this Saturday night 7/18 at the Tractor with Bardot & The Echolarks! I can’t wait to play some of these new Wild Knights songs live. It’s going to be a hot one for sure. Get your tickets now...before they get you!
CITY ARTS MAKES WILD KNIGHTS JULY’S ALBUM OF THE MONTH - 7/1/15

GOOD IDEA SUMMER - 8/7/14
This summer, for the first time, Seattle presents Piano in the Parks. The Parks Dept. have teamed up with various partners to place 20 pianos outside at 20 local parks. To highlight this ingenious idea, KEXP has asked musicians around town to donate a performance at one of the Pianos. KEXP will film the performance to preserve online in their archives. After checking out the rad Piano Art and visiting a few parks, it was just too hard to choose. I've decided to do two short Aqueduct solo sets at two different parks.
Wednesday, August 13th
8:00pm - Sunset Performance
Sunday, Aug 17th
4:00pm - Afternoon Show
Please join me for these special performances of Aqueduct songs (and maybe a cover?) to celebrate this truly awesome and unique community art project.
MIXING IT UP - 5/6/14
Ole~! ...It's back to Texas again, and I'm excited to be entering the final mix phase on the new Aqueduct album. I certainly have taken my sweet-ass time, but the record is taking a beautiful shape. I know in my heart that this is the best music I have ever recorded, thanks in no small part to Matt Pence down in the Echo Lab. I can't wait for everyone to hear!!!
For you Pacific Northwesterners, lookout for a live show! My dear friends from the Seattle band the Catch (OG Lineup) have planned a fun show at the Crocodile and have asked Aqueduct and Tennis Pro to join in. Really looking forward to this sure-to-be-unstoppable rock show on Wed. June 25th + it'll be just like old times! Stay tuned for more info in the show between now and then.
