I’m in the Bahamas for a month writin’ songs – Mic (an’ Buddy)
We are incredibly saddened by the loss this week of one of our founding members, Dave Walker. Dave was a guy with so many talents, a longtime supporter and participant of the local music scene, and an all-around good dude. A lot of people, Knoxville, and the world are feeling a great loss. To say he will be missed doesn’t begin to describe it.
