Friends,

Here's the video of my Daytrotter performance via Paste Magazine. It's now live for you to stream whenever you wish. If ya love it, please consider sharing it with other music lovers.

Recorded live to tape while a camera is rolling, one take; I play some songs, tell some stories and make a lot goofy faces. Songs performed are (I Just Died) Like An Aviator, Summer Never Ends, Battle Born, Walls by Tom Petty, and Run Rabbit Run. Really was a beautiful experience. The people at Daytrotter are just great.
