I'm off to Bologna mid April to play a few shows with my Italian friends Aldo Betto (guitar), Giacomo Da Ros (bass) & Youssef Ait Bouazza (drums). I met Aldo over a couple of guitars at a gig in Tuscany in 2009, and subsequently Giacomo too, and have played with them many times since. I've yet to meet Youssef but Aldo tells me he is the bomb.
Then on to Porto Santo Stefano to record at Yellow Fridge Road studio with long time friend and former Karma County tour manager/mixer Daniele Di Giovanni. I've got a bunch of songs for a new album and can't wait to workshop them with these great artists. And maybe a little food & wine too, tutte bene!
