I'm back! After a month travelling the states, plus a couple of weeks to reflect on the project, I'm ready to share some of my news from the USA. I had the most incredible time over there, met some amazing people, and had a life changing experience. Where to begin!?

We started in LA and bought a 1990 Cadillac Deville, with the intention of driving it across the whole USA. The car made it (barring a few mishaps) and 5,000 miles later, the car is en route to Liverpool, being shipped back to David in Ireland.

We had some incredible concerts along the way. Personal highlights included visiting the house of NEA Jazz Master Jamey Aebersold, and performing with him in his basement! We got some video footage of this, and hope to release it soon. Also learning about Native American music from Anuk Bald Eagle (a descendent of Crazy Horse), was really inspiring.

What more can I say?! I recommend watching the vlog for MOBO. They did a fantastic job editing all our footage, and I'm really proud of the results. They made 10 really fantastic episodes, which captures some of our time over there. Check it out here.

Here's the first episode to get you started;
