News Updates: June 2016
Hey friends! I leave for tour tomorrow! Unfortunately, that means no more Seattle shows for a little bit. But take a look at the road dates at all, and if our paths cross while you're vacationing/traveling, definitely get in touch!
I'll be on tour with national Country/Rock artist Dylan Jakobsen all month. I've been playing with Dylan quite a bit around town over the last few months, he's a monster talent and the band is sounding super tight! Definitely check out his new record if you get the chance. We'll be hitting some local NW and MW festivals come July, so keep an eye out on his website and for my next newsletter!

New Music from the Dylan Welsh Trio
Some of my biggest influences operate primarily within the trio idiom. Naturally, I've been following their path and trying to refine my trio approach, and have really been enjoying gigging with it. Starting in the mid-late Summer, I'll be pursuing more bookings for my own trio, with the eventual goal of using it as a vehicle for more original music and arrangements.
Anyhow, to help market the group to potential clients, I self recorded a demo album that's now available on Soundcloud. There's also a couple of bonus tracks thrown in, just for fun ;).

Luis Ross - Bass
David Hoogkamer - Drums
Let me know what ya think!! Maybe you'd be interested in booking me for some fancy dinner party that you're throwing at your house/business? Let me know!
That's it for June! I'll be keeping tour updates going on @dwelshmusic on Instagram and Twitter, so make sure to follow me if you wanna keep up with how things are going! Be sure to stay in touch with how things are swinging in Seattle as well!
