This past April, I started working on a solo CD. I'm not leaving Skinny Molly…
I'm just putting together a CD of homeless songs
that I've written over the years that don't really fit the band…
On this past May 14 (my dad's 82nd birthday) I realized a long
time dream of getting my dad, George Estes in the studio to record
a song with me. It was his first time being recorded
and he did a fantastic job. The CD will be out sometime in the fall.
In other news, we have the performances all mixed and edited from
a show that we did at The Shed in Maryville, TN and it will be
finished in time to release before our Fall leg of the Here For A Good
Time tour which begins in late October in the Czech Republic!
We have some more dates in the States this coming July and August
so keep coming back here to www.skinnymollyrocks.com for updates!
