We’ve been having a great time folks. We’ve had the privilege of seeing much of the American Mid and North West and have been enjoying the cooler weather up in these parts.
Since Harlan won the million dollar guitar and got to perform at Telluride almost three weeks ago, we’ve been through Utah, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, and Minnesota playing gigs, seeing old buds, and making some new ones on our way. We’ve performed at yoga studios, wineries, bars, coffee shops, parties, and after-parties as well. One after-party in particular landed us under a brilliant display of stars beside a scene at Idaho’s Red Fish Lake that might make old Bob Ross blush with envy (if he wasn’t dead).
We also played a gig where there were more dogs than people. It got me in a sentimental mood missing the hound I had to leave on the farm.
Now before we part ways, Harlan and I want to point you guys toward a very special upcoming show at Flipnotics in Austin on July 23rd. Not only will this be a homecoming show of sorts me and ol’ Harl, but we’re also going to have the privilege and honor of hearing the great Owen Temple and Adam Carroll as they interpret the music of legendary country music songwriter Gary Floater. Me and Matt might end up doing a Floater song as well, so save your ears for this great bill folks!
Matt and I also want to thank the following people for the kindness they’ve shown us on our tour: John Wilson in Houston, John and Lori in Duluth, Mike Swenson for the hang in Bismarck, James in Bismarck, Reba in Ogden (for a rich hang on a work night), Lee Penn Sky and Callie for digs in Boise, Marsha and Denise in Sandpoint, Mary Louise and Patty Zapp in Missoula, and Parker Graves and family in Billings.

David's inner Christopher Walken emerges after finally delivering the "ballsy" vocal performance for "Who You Say" he and producer Jack Storey had been after. Engineer Kyle Collins returns to lend his expertise to the proceedings, as well as some encouragement as Jack attempts to re-create his previously improvised 3-Part harmony.

The long awaited first single "See Me Falling" from Circle7's first full length CD, was released on iTunes through GarageDog Records and Record Union Distribution.
"It means a lot to have See Me Falling be our first single and to see so many people supporting it. The song was written about the death of a really good friend of mine and I'm sure if he could see where we've taken it, he'd be proud." said front man Mark Thomas
iTunes has released the entire single, which includes the full version of "See Me Falling" as well as an acoustic "b-side" of the song.
You can buy the entire single for $1.98 on iTunes or buy each individual song for $0.99/each.

All the members of The Adam Effect would like to take a moment to wish everyone a happy fourth of July. Thank you God for bringing us the freedom to worship you.

Gabriel Brownlee is an up and coming Hip Hop Artist. He uses his artistic lyrics and melody to portray a concept and message with a very original sound. His lyrics flow out in repetition on a steady beat that keeps the groove going strong. We expect to hear more from this artist within the next year or two, and look forward to hearing more tunes. In the meantime, you can check out a single called “No Mo Solo.”
We had a fantastic pre-production session last night with producer Dave Kushner. His input is invaluable and thse songs are coming together really well. Can't wait to get into the studio next weekend and start tracking!

So, a few weeks ago we were having RSM. That's our churches student night, and a few weeks ago my dad (the leader in Greeley) went to get us dinner! ROMA! Ok, anyway... he said that he wanted an original song by the time he got back, so we tried it out. I messed around on the guitar, (I'm the worship leader for RSM in Greeley) and came up with this really odd song. So tomorrow for RSM, I will be performing this song for the students there, it will only be a few people, and then it will also be recorded! Don't worry, I actually did write it out and everything, and I hope this becomes a normal because it was fun and tomorrow night people will hear this song! I hope you all get the chance to watch and listen to the live version that will be posted here! I think you will like it!

"Rogers is both a sensational and a sensitive blues guitarist - certainly among the finest slide guitarists playing today."
- San Francisco Examiner
