We did it, we’ve made it through another year!
Thanks to all of you who helped make 2019 a great year for us. We’ve enjoyed getting to hit the road, see new places, make new friends and play new songs for everyone. We’re going to try our hardest to get a new album written this year. We make no promises of releasing it in 2020, but we will have a whole album’s worth of new songs to woodshed through until we get them right!
We also want to give a special thank you to everyone who came out to the Holiday Show last Saturday! It was a blast! It is always wonderful to end the year with a packed house of friendly faces. I remember doing these shows back in the day to just a handful of people, so it has been a gift to see them grow so much. This was the 8th holiday show Samuel has done at Bohemeo’s out of the past 10 (We did Rudyard’s one year and Lit Hookah Lounge another year) and our 7th in a row. Our first official Brightwire show was our 2016 Holiday Show. For all of you who were there through Wayward Sons, solo and Brightwire shows, we thank you. (We’re looking at you, Bob!)
We especially want to thank Grifters & Shills for bringing their holiday traditions of charity and goodwill to the community into the event. Oh, and absolutely rocking the house. We appreciate you two so much. Doing this together made it so much fun. Also, don’t sleep on Ryan Lester. Dude absolutely brought it last night. If he’s willing, we’ll be doing more shows with him in 2020.
Now, we’re taking a bit of time off. We’ve earned the rest. We’ll be doing some videos and other fun things in the meantime, but unless something we can’t turn down comes along, we’ll be in the audience at shows until February. While I’m not giving away all of the details just yet, go ahead and mark yourself busy all of Valentine’s weekend. We’ve got a great local tour lined up with two great couple-fronted bands.
Until then, have a wonderful holiday season. Thanks for making 2019 a special year musically. We’ll see you all soon!
