Rad and Ellis

The Dynamic Duo!

Hello Friends-
I’m traveling across Nebraska and I’m in an ocean of farmland. This landscape is very zen, very soothing. Calming. I’m also blaring the new album “55” on this ribbon of highway and couldn’t be more proud of it. I think my favorite song from the album is “Holy”. What’s yours? It makes me excited for future songs— I loved creating the production for that track. I literally worked on it for eight months trying to get the instrumental breaks perfected. It was worth the effort!

We have finally finished sending pre-orders out (except for international ones— they go out next week). The album is already getting some airplay all over the world. It officially arrives for purchase on June 19th— if you’d like a copy of the CD before then, join my Patreon site and we will send it out to you! You’ll get all the other special perks too!

Hey Chicago, Wisconsin, Iowa, and MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota— we are finding our way to you this week! Come on out!
We’ve been all over the US doing shows in promoting the 30th Anniversary Tour— I’m lucky to have the talents of piano player Radoslav Lorković along for the ride. Not only is he a great musician— he helps us storm into town like two angel pirates. The shows have been fantastic. These are our first extended and legitimate runs of shows since before the pandemic. We are making up for lost time! Come see what all the hoopla is about!

Wednesday April 19 - Hey Nonny, Arlington Heights, IL
Thursday April 20 - CSPS, Cedar Rapids, IA
Friday April 21 - The Bur Oak, Madison, WI
Saturday April 22 - The Pump House, La Crosse, WI
Sunday April 23 - Icehouse, Minneapolis, MN
