Home from USA tour. A few things I’d like to say: 1) Had a great time meeting the @whiskeyshivers crew. Stand up gentlemen, I truly hope we cross paths again. Do yourself a favour and check out their tunes (or see them in Pitch Perfect 3!) 2) Thanks to @thedeadsouth including me on such a grand adventure, being rock solid friends and giving me a platform to share my art. Proud of you guys and all you’ve been able to achieve. 3) Thanks to Stacy, Ruby, Lauren and The Duke for embracing me as a crew member giving me a walkie-talkie. #roger 4) Thanks to all the people who showed up early for my set, listened to my stories and songs, and purchased some form of the Musician’s Compass. 5) USA is one hell of place, can’t wait to go back. #MC12 #murica #delsuelo Photo: @eric.hetzler

Three years ago I got a call out of the blue from ol’ Scotty P of @thedeadsouth asking if could fill in for an upcoming tour. Since then it’s been a few hundred shows and a few thousand km’s. Honoured to be opening up a number of their shows this fall and the chance to share the work of The Musician’s Compass with some new audiences. See ya out there. #mc12 #tour #rhubarb
