yeah, Covid 19 sure puts a dent in things ...
OK, then, the new album, if you fall, has been released in Italy and is already making some noise. My cover of Francesco de Gregori's Rimmel has already been featured on RAI, Italy State TV and continues to get airplay around the country. I will be on a plane in two days for a three week tour with my Italian band, Paolo Ercoli. Can't wait to get back there. There will be another set of dates in Texas later in the year and in December the tour heads to Florida.
Here the Italian dates ... yup, it's a hell of a life!!!!
