I’ll have a new gig poster available this Friday, June 6th, that I am very pleased with. I may even go as far to say that it is my favorite gig poster I have done to date.    “Living in Magic” is a 12" x 36" silkscreened gig poster printed on Black Licorice paper for Ray Lamontagne’s June 4th show at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Baltimore.

Each print is hand signed and numbered in a limited edition of 195.

A very limited amount of prints from the edition will be available on Friday, June 6th at 5PM PST at www.jamesreadsmerch.com and will cost $45

Well, here is my new mix for Autumn. It may be my last one for some time, so I hope you all enjoy it. As always, it’s a diverse mix, so not all of the songs may tickle your fancy. You may, however, find a new artist or two that you enjoy.
