After forty years of writing, recording, touring and producing i've decided to take a step back from the business of music. Thank you to everyone for your immeasurable love and support and for making Anastasia, my last album, a beautiful reality

4-4-16 Big Snows And CD Release Shows

Way over here in the high desert Rockies we’re getting some of the best skiing weather you could hope for and we’re taking full advantage of it. When you live right down the road from one of the finest (and funnest) ski areas in the country you must partake. That’s where all all my local friends are hanging out anyway. Thank you Taos Ski Valley!

I’ve been spending a massive amount of time promoting and preparing musically for two large CD Release shows for the new album, Anastasia. The official release is impending and soon to be announced. It’s already been submitted for the New Mexico Music Awards which take place in May and this fall we hope to see it submitted to the Grammy folks for consideration by The Recording Academy. I hope that you voting Grammy members out there will give me a mention… if you like the record, of course. The first CD Release show will be Friday Feb 19th in Taos at the KTAOS Solar Center in their large, lovely pavilion. Lots of room to dance and mingle. The second show will be the next night, Saturday Feb 20th, in Alamosa CO which is located in the San Luis Valley (Beautiful Valley). The venue there is a bit more intimate with more theater style seating and this will be my first time in there, which I’m very much looking forward to. It’ll be a bit of a homecoming for me since I lived there for a few years and hold that place and those people dear to my heart. I’ve assembled the core of the studio band and some special guests and these promise to be two nights of great music and a lot of laughs. You can find out all you need to know about these shows on the Tour page here on this site or on either of my Facebook pages.

I hope you are all doing well wherever you are and finding some fine entertainment during this wild and wacky presidential primary season. No shortage of fun to be had there. Once again I send out my largest thanks to all 515 of my dedicated Kickstarter supporters and then some. I’m also extremely grateful to Don, Teri, David, Wendy and Jana at Howlin’ Dog Records for taking a chance on me and releasing this album on their small, but mighty label. We’ll keep you posted on the official digital and physical release dates. Love to all. DonCon
