UPDATE 9/20: Tickets to the charity show sold out in under an hour! I am so grateful to each and every one of you who bought tickets. We are grateful to the venue who has allowed us to expand our tickets by moving to their larger venue, El Corazon. El Corazon is located in the same complex as Funhouse and tickets from Funhouse transfer to El Corazon. If you have already purchased tickets, you do not need to take action. If you would like to purchase tickets, you can do so using the same ticket link as below. El Corazon is a 750-cap space, and we are so excited to be able to accommodate everyone who still hasn't been able to purchase tickets. The information below has been updated to reflect the new venue details.

Hey everybody!

In the past month, I've released two new singles on Spotify! I accidentally backdated the newest single, There's Something in the Water Here, so it may not be pushed out to everyone. If you haven't listened to the new singles yet, so you can check them out below:

Swingset on Spotify

Thank you to everyone who has already checked them out. It means so much to me. I know I haven't been updating the blog as much recently, but thank you so much to everyone who reads this as well.

In addition, I'm so grateful to announce that I will be playing my first live show in almost 5 years on March 24, 2024 in Seattle, WA. I will be playing this show alongside the musicians who have played on the last few albums, including the McCafferty Forever and the new singles. My wife will also be playing bass during the show and I'm excited to get to perform together.

The show will benefit The Trevor Project, with our portion of ticketing and merchandise profits directly going to the charity. This is an extremely important cause to me and I hope we are able to help others out with this show, as well, as The Trevor Project is providing us with resources that will be available at the show to take home with you.

The concert will be held on March 24, 2024 at El Corazon in Seattle, WA. Tickets go on sale at 9AM PST tomorrow, September 20th, 2023 (UPDATE 9/20 tickets are available now at El Corazon using the same link below). I will also have two friends of mine opening the show, and I look forward to holding a safe and inclusive benefit show, where everyone can celebrate the music. I want to take a moment to thank the venue for giving us this opportunity and helping make this happen for a good cause. If you are interested in buying tickets when they go live, you can follow the link here.

We are practicing hard to give you all a great show, and I hope you are able to make it and enjoy the new singles. I'm excited to be able to play out one more time, as this will be my last show, and I'm thankful to be healthy enough to do it. My therapist will even be there, so I am grateful to have a support system in place to allow me to play a show healthy and sober for the first time.

Thank you all for reading and listening.

The Remake album, Mccafferty Forever, is out now on all streaming platforms! It's 8 songs that I had been wanting to re-release with some modern polish and I am really happy with how they have turned out! I hope everyone enjoys them and I am incredibly thankful to anyone who takes the time to check them out. I have fallen behind on my blog ever since I started using Instagram because it's an easier way to interact with people and I apologize for that.

Mentally, I have been up and down a lot these last few months with regret and shame over my past mixed with my Bipolar so I haven't felt like writing anything. I am feeling good about my life and McCafferty currently though, so I want to chase that feeling. These songs are important to me and some of them are over 10 years old at this point which is absolutely crazy. It feels like just yesterday that I wrote them. I have changed a lot over the last decade, specifically the last three and a half years, and I am at a point where I am proud of the person I am and what I have accomplished with my music, but I wish I was always the person I am now because I hate who I used to be, but life is about growing and making meaningful change to ourselves to be better, so I am grateful for that.

I'm going to let this album sit for a month until September 7th, when I will be releasing Swingset, the first single from my upcoming 2024 album. I am about two months behind on my emails so I apologize for the late responses, but I will get to them, even if it takes forever. I want to thank my electric guitarist, producer, drummer, and partner for making these songs incredible and without them I am nothing. I hope that everyone is doing well and enjoys the songs.
