Produced by Grammy Award-winner Colin Linden (Bruce Cockburn, Alison Krauss / Robert Plant, Bob Dylan), When the Sun and a Blue Star Collide is now available on all music streaming platforms and available for purchase at upcoming shows, and more. The first single, "Sun State," is making waves on AAA and Americana Radio and features blues legend Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica.
