Well here we are. Middle of nowhere Oklahoma on our way to Dallas TX . Tour Vans running a little rough , A/C unit kind of working, and our tires are wearing low. We left Los Angeles with our hopes up high and our heads down low excited to show the world the Pullman Standard we have become. Eight weeks into tour and we find ourselves even more hungry, the smell of success in our noses. We keep meeting amazing people along this journey that want nothing more than to see us succeed. We truly love what we do and know that with every show, everyday, we keep moving forward with positive energy in our hearts and a will to find a way. We won't let you down.

To the point:
I have been getting asked quite a bit , "Where did Austin go?" "Did you guys get in a fight?"
First of all for those who never realized it Austin is my younger brother (Yes blood related), he joined PS straight out of high school when he was 17. He went to college during the week and toured on the weekends as well as every open school break. After he graduated Pullman Standard was in full touring mode, crisscrossing the country every other month. Make no mistake, tour life is rough , there has been nothing glamorous about the last four years since we started touring. Sleeping on random peoples floors, eating cheap fast food, driving a half busted van and trailer 6 hours to play in a half empty bar filled with smoke to people who have never heard your music so all they want to hear are cover songs. It wears you down quickly if your not ready, another reason why some Pullman Standard members didn't stick around that long.
My brother joined Pullman Standard cause i needed a temporary bassist to play a few gigs, what was supposed to be a temporary fix turned into a six year commitment. Austin is an amazing musician who bled for me and the dream of Pullman Standard. He always gave me and Pullman Standard his best and only questioned direction to help find a better one. This past winter break Austin and I sat down and talked about the future of Pullman Standard. All of the touring that was being planned for the next year, all of the long drives that were about to be logged. I knew from the start of the conversation how it would end. He kept it short but explained his point of view on the last six years as well as the future and how he always wants the best for me and Pullman Standard but he could no longer be a part of it and how he would give me till the end of our winter tour. With a big hug and nod of approval Austin performed one more show with us at Molly Mallones before we left for this past Spring Tour. Remember Pullman Standard is more than who we are as a band, it is an idea that gives energy to all. Let our music and the energy it brings be the sound track to your adventures and the common ground in the forging of memories and relationships. May it be the spark that ignites inspiration , and the light the guides you home. I love my brother always.
