2016 wrap-up / 2017 preview

Well, The Train Wreck Endings had an eventful year, highlighted by a spring trip to Memphis to record at the legendary Sun Studio. From those tapes, we released two singles, "Once or Twice", and, under Nancy Griffith-Cochran's name, "Inside (Far Away)". The latter song was written by Pat Holbrook.

The year was capped by a December 18 show at The Bitter End in New York City, another thrill, despite my roaring case of the flu, perfectly timed for that day...

We played more than 40 shows, including a few great festivals: The PBR10K in Columbus, Ohio, in February (we'll be back again in 2017!), the Panhandle Earth Day Celebration in Shepherdstown, WVa., the Purcellville Wine & Food Festival, and the Purcellville Music & Arts Festival.

The Bitter End gig was the 575th of my "career," which isn't bad when you consider that I was a (very) late bloomer as a live performer. A live album of that show will be released early in 2017, both digitally and on vinyl.

An album of new material is on our agenda for fall of 2017 - it'll also be digital and vinyl - as well as playing a couple other places on our bucket list (stay tuned for more info).
