"…just visiting too" To Be Finished Within the Week

I feel like I’ve been talking about my next two albums forever…

…just visiting too (the follow-up to 2006’s vinyl-only EP …just visiting) is finally set to be completed within the next week. I have a very short list of “to do’s” in order to tweak and finish the EP. It’ll consist of seven joints and a track listing will be released by the end of this month. DAMN, I’m excited… Y’all just don’t understand yet…!!

@Syberspace: “Having lots of fun in the studio right now! I feel like I haven’t recorded in ages! Track is by @Zo3hree5ive, hope he digs.”

With Sy @ Bohemian Caverns in D.C. – 03.27.08

One of my favorite vocalists, 
Sy Smith is now in the studio with one of my joints for the …just visiting too album. Judging by the way she has already laced the hell outta the SunStorm album, I think we’ll all be in for a treat. So what I’M gonna do in the meantime is fill up my wine glass with Shiraz and sip till I get the joint back… Can’t WAIT!!

What’s the good word y’all? Well, I guess I’ll jump right into it. Now, y’all know that since I’ve been in the DC Area, I’ve been playing with a band called The ELs, right? And since November, we have been the touring band behind Phonte and Nicolay, collectively known as The Foreign Exchange, right? Well, ever since our very first show back in November, I have been asked the same question in EVERY city we have played in, it never fails…

“When are y’all gonna do a show in the D?!”

“Are y’all comin’ to the D anytime soon?”

Welp! That time has finally come. Next week on Thursday June 4th at the Charles H Wright Museum… Foreign Exchange will be in Detroit performing with vocalists YahZarahDarien Brockington and us…The ELs providing the music. Y’all don’t understand how excited I am about having the opportunity to go back home and present this show that I have been talking about, showing pictures and YouTube clips of for over 6 months now. To my peoples at home –please spread the word to everyone. I wanna see a ton of familiar faces in the crowd!

This show will kick off a couple of other dates including a return to Chicago and our debut in Toronto and L.A. Here is a list of the schedule:

In the meantime, …just visiting too has just acquired vocal assistance in the form of Phonte and Carlitta Durand. The three of us just finished a new joint for the new SunStorm album as well. Keep your ears open…

Aaaaaand, school is almost out and I will not be teaching in the summer…so it will be yet another productive (and peaceful) couple of months. I am also one class (and two standardized tests) away from a Master’s Degree! How ‘bout that?


As always, I’ll continue to keep you all updated as things come up. Thank you for listening and see y’all at the next show!
