Once again, thanks to Gibson guitars for having me play at the Rockn Rolla - MTV Movie awards on June 2. I was also joined by the amazing Ted Gowans on guitar (Tegan and Sara) as well as the uber talented violinist Jessy Green (Foo Fighters/Pink) who is featured on the new album, HeySanPedro. Thanks guys.
Lastly, its true that my good friends, Pauley Perrett (NCIS), Tommy Joe Ratliff (Adam Lambert) and Veronica Bellino (Joss Stone) and myself are putting together a fun studio project. Stay tuned for more music and shenanigans with that!
