Whew!!! #1 Billboard and more!!!!

This is been an incredibly busy time but lots of the exciting things are happening!

My brand new instrumental recording, “Fret A Spell” is still creeping out there. As any release you do your self, it’s a much lengthier process. But there’s been a lot of great feedback for that particular pet project.

Balsam Range is really getting cranked up and garnering some major attention at the moment.

The new BR cd, “Aeonic”, made its debut at #1 in BILLBOARD!!!! And has been featured in Rolling Stone, Billboard Magazine and the Wall Street Journal. With “The Rambler” getting wonderful reviews. “The Rambler”, written by Adam Wright, is my favorite song that BR has ever recorded. I’m so excited that it’s getting such positive feedback and is being released as the new single to radio.

Our winter/spring is filled with the shooting of new pictures and video, tour dates, radio, promoting the new albums and much more!!!

Come see us on the road. The shows and the music are ever evolving!!
