FEBRUARY 2020

New music coming soon!

Slowly coming back out of the “fog” of caring for my dad and watching over him in his final days, only a few weeks after the passing of his brother (and my uncle) Jack Scott. I was not sure how soon I would get back to making music but I guess I’m bouncing back sooner than I thought.

Working on two tracks, one for my solo music (Rio) and one for Rio & The Rockabilly Revival. Feeling really good about them both. Exciting music (and acting) possibilities for 2020 on the horizon, I want to make the most of them. Dad would want that too.
