Welcome to a new season, and here's a bit of a look back on 2022 - what I have done so far this year:
- A released album I'm Feeling Blue which went to #1 on the Blues Rock chart.
- Released album Brad "Guitar" Wilson which went to #1 on the Blues Rock Chart.
- Charted in Australia and UK.
- Toured Europe in May and October.
- Shows in big cities San Francisco, Sacramento, Etten Leur, The Haque, Paris and Brussels.
- Toured with the legendary band, Chicago, both with my band and as a solo acoustic artist. Dates were in front of ten thousand people at their concerts.
- Produced new videos for my songs on YouTube.
- Created new lines of successful t-shirts and hats.
- Traveled every week performing all over California, including many casinos.
- I have a new album planned for April 7, 2023. The recording sessions are in November and December, plus photo sessions for the cover and accompanying artwork.
- Traveled to beautiful parks like Sequoia National Forest, Point Lobos, and Stout Grove to see nature at its best. It was very rewarding.
I have some shows booked and will perform a few cool dates before 2023 begins, however, it is mostly about writing songs now.
I arrived in Amsterdam on October 13th and began the most amazing journey with eight shows in eleven days. The three days in Paris included a day off to see the city and have lunch at a cafe near the Eiffel Tower. Brussels is beautiful to visit and all of the crowds welcomed my show with so much enthusiasm for my songs and guitar work!! I love The Netherlands and traveling by train gave me a chance to see the lovely countryside. The Haque, the capital of The Netherlands, is an incredible city!! Loved the shows there!! My friends in Etten Leur are like family to me. We enjoyed great dinners, shopping, wine, and moving every day to play music in clubs at night. Each of the musicians I worked with was excellent, learned my songs in advance, and made my visit extra special. I am returning for another two-week tour from April 24 through May 8th, 2023 to support my new April 7 album release.
See you further on up the road...
