Got to hang with Eamon Ryland for a few hours today. Mostly just hung out but recorded a bit towards the end. Can’t say enough good stuff about this guy. I just let him do his thing, what a talent.

Jesca Hoop recording and live
Thanks to Lincoln at McCabe’s for this photo playing with Jesca Hoop May 21, 2011. It was a fun filled, edge of your seat, what’s she gonna do next kinda night playing to a very enthusiastic sold out crowd.
Jesca’s been recording a new record in town with Tony Berg, Blake Mills, and Shawn Everett producing. My prediction is this will be her best yet from the roughs I’ve heard. Look for the album around January 2012 and a possible tour opening for Eels this fall 2011.
WELCOME . . . . .
