Hello! How are you? This week was Thanksgiving, and I have so much to be grateful for (in addition to pie). We released the new record True Crime this Fall on September 9, 2022!!! You can find a link to your favorite listening platform here! Then in October, I released a video for "Tied To The Track" created by my talented pal Jessi Robertson. I'm super proud of the record, the video, the artwork, and everyone who worked so hard to make this creative endeavor happen especiall
Hello! In the past few months Lawson and I finalized the mixes and sent them to our mastering engineer Matthew Agoglia, I collaborated with Wolfhart Creative on some fabulous photos, Katherine Hardy is finishing up the mysterious album art, and Jessi Robertson has been creating some dreamy videos for the record! (Rumor has it Jessi and I are starting work on a full length music video too...) The first single Tied To The Track will be released in June, and I will start posting
Hope you are doing well. Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello! How are you? Are you staying safe and healthy and cool? I have been staying busy, working quietly behind the scenes on a few things rather than out in the world. The new record is still a work in progress, but we're working on the last song - which is of course, the most heartbreaking one of them all. Then there are some re-dos (vocals) and some things to add, mixing. But it's getting close! I did get the opportunity to perform with my pal Colin Dempsey at an outdoor s
Hello! Wow. Hi. When I imagined 2020 as a kid, or even a few months ago, it had a very different shape. In my head it was futuristic and fun, inventive, yet flawed, shiny and exciting. I had silver hovercraft optimistic expectations of how things might go, based on how life has operated in the past. Boy was I wrong.

So to celebrate, I'm including some vintage 2010 photos in this newslett
