Joe Henry (brief) winter update

Just a few activities of note to keep you JH fans excited:

  • Based on Joe’s Facebook postings last week, it would appear that the Johnny Cash Bitter Tears project has commenced recording.  According to JH, visitors to Garfield House included Kris Kristofferson, Gillian Welch, David Rawlings and Rhiannon Giddens (from Carolina Chocolate Drops).
  • The live session from KEXP in December has made the rounds on NPR’s website, and “Swayed” (one of the new songs from the upcoming Invisible Hour) is available for download as a video podcast.
  • JH joined a host of wonderful aritsts at The Troubadour in LA for a tribute to the late Phil Everly.
  • UPDATE:  I also meant to note that the folks at American Songwriter were kind enough to post a recent article from their January issue, which features The Milk Carton Kids discussing one of their mentors (guess who).

That’s about all I know for now, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing plenty about Invisible Hour in the coming months.
