Wow! I just found out that I won first prize in the Steve Winwood "Can't Find My Way home" cover contest. The prize? A Fender Stratocaster signed by Steve Winwood. I started performing this song about 5 years ago, with the Paul Green School of Rock, so when I heard about the contest, I decided to record the version that I do now, and upload it!
Winning a signed guitar, is amazing; but, this video message from Steve Winwood made my week.. maybe all time highlight? You can watch the video here: http://stevewinwood.com/media/videos/1368/4231 The comments on his website, my YouTube video, and everywhere else regarding the contest, have been incredibly supportive. My video can be seen here, or in the video section of my page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4FId2Sy2fk
Next Wednesday night, Thanksgiving Eve, I'm performing at Mojo 13 in Wilmington, DE. The doors open at 8pm, I perform from 9-10pm. 21+. Also performing: The Hold Up, The Overlook, and Nate Farrar.
