Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate the Whisper of the Moon
release. It was a wonderful night! Playing with Tosca String Quartet
is like a dream. It feels like walking on air and I love to share it with you.
The great RyDog Johnson sat in on electric guitar, with sweet harmony vocals from Elizabeth McQueen
, and beautiful dances by members of Toni Bravo's Diverse Space Dance Theatre
. The indisputable Mixer Rogers
co-produced the show, designed the poster, created the beautiful stage set, AND book-ended with his now-famous "AustinCentric" DJ sets of all Austin music.
Thanks also to Glynn Wedgewood and Jack McFadden at ACL Live
for all they did to make the show a success.
Matthew Champion from The Austinot wrote a really amazing show review
, with pictures and video.

We promoted the show with a visit to Austin's NPR station, KUTX. DJ John Aielli actually said after our first song, "Brava! That is one of the best songs I've ever heard." !!!!!!!! HOW COOL IS THAT? !!!!!!!
