'THE WILD' RELEASE TOUR WRAPS UP IN THE MIDWEST
They say all good things must end, and in this case that appears to be true, as somehow we've reached the last leg of the KD/Jeffrey Foucault release tour for THE WILD. It's been pretty dreamy thus far. It's a luxury to be able to settle into playing the songs night after night and finding just where to live in them. We've been blessed with amazing audiences from coast to coast, close listeners and enthusiastic receivers of the new music, and we're grateful for it. We've gotten to show our daughter Puget Sound and the snowy Cascades, herds of elk in the Columbia Gorge and sea lions on the Oregon Coast, redwoods and banana slugs and Venice Beach. We stand a very good chance of winning this year's award for Most Math Homework Done in a Tour Van as well as Most 'Little House on the Prairie' Binge-Watched in the Green Room. And now we're bringing the whole family circus to the Midwest in December to wrap up this chapter.
A voting majority of the band is comprised of native Midwesterners: Billy Conway hails from Owatonna, Minnesota, Eric Heywood from Mt. Vernon, Iowa, and JF from Whitewater, Wisconsin. Moses and I are foreigners from the East, but rest assured that we have received many hours of cultural sensitivity training, and we're well versed on the unspoken rules of local etiquette (such as refusing an offer three times before accepting it), as well as the important taboos (such as asking out loud for what what you actually want). If all goes well, we hope to provide the world with an inspiring example of crosscultural harmony and cooperation.
It's a rare and special thing to get to play a batch of songs with just the right band in just the right room to just the right audience. We've had any number of nights that felt like that over the last couple of months, and with any luck we'll have a few more before we're done. I hope you can come be a part of one of them.
