Tour Journal


Rest Stop Song is another another song that I featured on the 2018 “Long Road Demos”. These songs were some of the first “New” songs I’d show the band.

Performance From The Van

This is the earliest known version of our song “Rest Stop Song”.
After a long night of driving, and the news that several of the shows I had booked for my first solo east coast tour had fallen through, I stopped at a rest stop to sleep.
I woke up the next morning to the sight of a man selling bootleg DVDs and assorted clothing with the word “FLORIDA” plastered all over them.
As I sat in my van watching his exchanges with strangers, I ate my breakfast of whatever food I could find on the floor of my van, and wrote down this song. After playing it once or twice, I had to show someone, so I recorded it and sent it out to the wilds of the internet and this is the result!
