Hey, it’s D! Here’s what I’m up to as of late:

With festival season in high gear, I’ve been hopping around each weekend, working (and sometimes just attending for fun) some stellar events. Some of my personal highlights this spring have been SXSW in Austin, Connect Beyond Festival in Asheville, NC , KAABOO Texas in Dallas, Merlefest in Wilkesboro, NC, and Cold Mountain Festival on the grounds of gorgeous Lake Logan, NC.

My Xpand Fest team just concluded our 3rd annual event in downtown Asheville, NC. Unfortunately, with apocalyptic thunderstorms, we ultimately had to let Mother Nature take the crown, but it was fun while it lasted - and our staff CRUSHED the day from start to finish under some less-than-favorable weather circumstances.

In the Mason Jar Media offices, we’re plugging away on some exciting publicity campaigns, shining light on all the best musical happenings from Southern California to the Atlantic Coast, and everything in between.

In non work related news, I am LOVING Western North Carolina in the summertime. I’m definitely getting my fix of sunsets, hiking, waterfall hunting, river floating, craft beer sipping, backyard grilling, and plenty of quality friends and family time.

Hope to see you ‘round the playground soon! If you find yourself at Mile of Music, Tailgate Fest, KAABOO Del Mar, or Marcus King Band Family Reunion, give me a shout!

Yours in music,
