My friend and fellow songwriter and musician, Josh Gray has a new album out today of original songs. It's called Songs of the Highway and it got reviewed here: Tomorrow night at Bourbon & Branch Josh Gray will be performing a solo set, on tour with Jason Erie. F. Woods of F. Woods and The Fellow Humans is also playing a set and then will be backing me in a set as well. Should be a fun night!
