Yep, it’s true . . . I still get a special tingling pleasure every time I see a cat! This little guy we came across at a rest stop in France. I gave him a little piece of ham and he seemed to enjoy it! At that same rest stop we were playing some football, and accidentally kicked the ball on top of a moving car. The man driving didn’t seem very happy about it… Woops! Our last concerts in Spain were really great. Madrid was especially nice, sold out at the little Teatro Del Arte . . . It was a really special atmosphere in there and a very warm and friendly audience. We said goodbye to Sumie after the concert in Barcelona. So lovely to have her along for a few days. I even had the great pleasure of singing a couple songs with her each night. Tonight we’re playing at STUK in Leuven, a fantastic venue run by very sweet people. This show marks the halfway point of our tour.

Huge thanks to all our audiences and promoters in Portugal! The three shows we had in Bragança, Coimbra and Lisbon were so lovely. In Coimbra we were joined by the lovely Sumie, who will be traveling with us all the way to Barcelona, playing support at the shows. We’ve all been spellbound by the simplistic beauty of her voice and guitar. Highly recommended if you’ve never heard her! Yesterday we had our first day off, after ten days in a row with concerts. We started driving towards Madrid (where we will play this evening), and pulled off on the side of the road about halfway. We found a really sweet hotel in a tiny village. They served us an incredible dinner last night, and then we all just went to bed. So tired! The light as we drove yesterday was so beautiful. A lot of dark clouds with light breaking through every once in a while. We saw a really nice rainbow!

Last night we had the immense pleasure of playing in Cafe Pop Torgal in Ourense. I played there once four years ago and was really looking forward to returning. It’s a tiny little place, fitting 100 people at the most. The atmosphere is so special. The owners of the place are true music lovers and also really great hosts. After the show we all went out to an epic dinner where they treated us to all the local delicacies. This region in Spain is especially known for the way they prepare octopus from the local waters. And today we’ve crossed over to Portugal, where we’ll be playing at a museum in Bragança . . . one of two cities on this tour which I’ve never been to. The drive today took us on tiny roads through the mountains. The scenery was absolutely stunning. We passed through a couple tiny villages which really felt like going back in time.

Today is a very rainy day in Santiago De Compostela. But just look at this view of the amazing old streets from my hotel balcony! It’s so beautiful here. We had an incredible concert here last night at Sala Capitol . . . I’m starting to get more comfortable being a band leader. It’s a new thing for me! The sound in the venue was so good last night. And today we’re off to Ourense, where I shall be reunited with the lovely folks who run the venue Cafe Pop Torgal. I have the most amazing memories from the last time I played at that place. We’re also hoping to find some time to check out some of the natural hot springs near Ourense . . . I’ve heard they’re incredible!

Whew . . . after the show in St. Gallen we drove all through the night in order to get to our next gig in Toulouse. After taking turns driving and sleeping in the van for about 14 hours, we finally made it there and played for a very lovely crowd at a little outdoor festival, in the courtyard of a museum. Needless to say, we were all completely exhausted by the end of the day and very happy when we finally made it to our hotel! And then we drove another six hours or so to Bilbao today. We stopped halfway and played some football and rode skateboards (yes, I invested most of my teenage years into skateboarding rather than music!). It was a really funny night in Bilbao . . . we never met the concert promoter . . . I was told he was at the dentist! But quite a few people came out to the show and I even got to dance with a nice lady during the middle of our set! Also, I asked our hotel to wash some clothes for me, and then 10 minutes later realized I had left 150 euros in the pockets of my pants . . . so I ran back and asked the man to stop the laundry, and he told me it’s not possible. I begged him to stop it. He kept saying no. Then I asked to speak to his boss. He called his boss and spoke to him in Spanish for a couple minutes, and when he hung up the phone he went downstairs and retrieved my wet money from the wash. Success! Here we are, sitting on the street outside the venue, drinking a beer after a long couple of days. The show must go on!
