He planned a two week trip to Nashville, booked two shows for the stay, and hit the road in his van. He enjoyed playing around town at open mics, a performance at the Bluebird Cafe, and many other great experiences. He spent half the trip sleeping on couches offered by newly-made friends and the other half sleeping in his van. And Kachel loved it. Kachel also became involved in the Third Wheel Project in Alaska. This group of musicians supports the work of peers and provides guidance for new artists arriving on the scene. Third Wheel Project invited Kachel to give five performances over a fourteen day period. Kachel wound up playing twelve of the fourteen days and enjoyed air time on four radio stations."
Over 3 hours of catchy original songs.
