Between tour dates I've been pecking away at building my new recording studio at our current home base in North Carolina. After drywalling, mudding, sanding, and putting on two layers of the wrong colored paint (it always looks different once it's on the wall, doesn't it!), I'm now ready to finish the music room and begin work on my next music project. I've got a lot of song ideas brewing, lyrics being scrawled in journals, new collaborators to work with, and I'm looking forward to seeing how these new songs take shape. Currently though, it feels good to just work with my hands and learn some basic construction skills.
