Really enjoyed the single today!
Anytime

I just got a dose of SOUL Therapy last night in the Church of Strings!  HOLY POOP it was an Incredible Show!!!
It was thrilling to see the jams, on stage interaction and just the live music sound in a big room.  Boy have I missed that!!!

I feel like he and the band have certainly leveled up a few times since the last time I saw him 2 years ago.  The light show was incredible as well and they had some new lights with multiple colors/beam which I had never seen before. I woke up today tired but still with a mind blown.

They covered a Doors song that I wasn't familiar with or had forgotten.  It was a live debut :)

Setlist is here:

Next time I believe that he will be in a bigger venue.  I believe Billy is a musical savant and he was channeling everything last night!

I'm glad you enjoyed the show ChiefOKONO!  We saw Billy back in 2019 at Headliners in Louisville and it was a fantastic show, and we all said to each other afterwards that he was going to get really big and move up to bigger venues just like you said in your comments.

ChiefOKONO

Right on!  I am very excited to hear the new album soon!!

Music is my savior these days.

I gotta get to one of his shows ASAP!!!  I've been really digging his collabs with Billy and the Kids!  He's an amazing talent!!!

ChiefOKONO

oh and when he starting this acoustic solo and then turned on the pedal FX to switch to electric tone, I kind of flipped out!

Don't you ever turn it off

Come Closer

Gets better towards the end, but kind of a step back from Home. Sort of disappointing.

ChiefOKONO

Thanks for the heads up parkervb, just looked up the article and looking forward to reading it!

Hell yes!  Well deserved!

Personally love the album and am going to be diving deeper with multiple listens.  The single/video In the Morning Light still slays me!
