"Nearness Of You" is available! Plus, NY, MD, NH, and MA appearances!

Hi Vance Fans!

Yeah, I've had a little time off from gigging, but the new album is here, and folks are really loving it. Even one of the exec producers of South Park says in a personal note to me:  "Listening to this… beautiful….I love it…"

It's available on iTunes, CD Baby, and at my website

It's officially getting pushed to radio and the press starting this week too. It wasn't supposed to be all about that - more a boutique thing for fans. But enough people think it has "legs" that I used Fundraiser $$ to work it to the media. Don't worry, I don't need more money. Just your fingers crossed that what originated as a sweet little project gets good reviews.

Thanks for both.

Here's where I'l be down the road - you'll notice I'm opening a mess of shows for the Subdudes. I love them guys, and they love me, so here we is:

6/4, Thursday Beacon NY
Towne Crier
379 Main Street
Beacon, NY
w/the Subdudes

1) one of my favorite locations to play - got my start here with Aztec 2 Step and Tuck and Patti in the early 90's
2) Now I open here for the Subdudes


6/5, Friday, Baltimore, MD
The Cellar Stage at Faith Community United Methodist
5315 Harford Road
Baltimore, MD
w/Susan Werner

This evening kinda speaks for itself. I'm doing a shorter set up front so I can get to Londonderry NH the next day…I know, right? Who is this agent of mine and has he ever heard of routing?


6/6, Saturday, Londonderry NH
Tupelo Music Hall 
2 Young Road 
Londonderry, NH

More Subdudes fun. Maybe they'll let me sing "Tenderness On The Block" with them - I did their back up parts for Shawn Colvin when I was on the road with her.


6/10, Wednesday, Arlington MA
The Regent Theatre
7 Medford Street,
Arlington, MA
Phone:  646-4849
Brookside Condominium Fire Benefit

(Leland Stein, Exec Director of the Regent Theatre):

Hi Vance,

Reaching out to see if you might be available to perform at a benefit for the displaced victims of the Brookside Condominium fire earlier this week.

Let me know if you're around on Wed June 10th and if you'd be interested in a short set. (Looking at a variety show of sorts, but not sure who will be on the bill yet.)

Thanks and best,



(me):    Of course. Lemme know what you need. V


There will be a mess of people on this bill including Mike Prior (Comedy Central, MTV) and Grammy Nominated harpist Deborah Henson-Conant. I live up the street. This is my home. I will have taught all day, but yeah, I'm playing a set. This is my home.


6/13, Saturday, Bennington VT
The Bennington Center for the Arts
44 Gypsy Lane
Bennington, VT

Sweet art center has just me this summer as their lone musical act. They could do a lot worse.
