Omaha, NE 4/18/13
Just got back to the midwest after 7 weeks and 8,000 miles of traveling - amazing shows, great people, beautiful places, but wow - it feels good to sit still. Making your way across the country is both a beautiful and arduous task - I started off in Bellingham, WA, about as far NW as you can go without crossing a border, and ended up as far Northeast as Yarmouth, Maine. There are days when the travel is effortless and lovely, and others where I've done everything I do to pass the time and I still have 6 hours to go. I'm really looking forward to having some downtime to start writing again - my favorite part of the process. I've got a bunch of new stuff and am really looking forward to getting started on another CD later this year. Glad to be alive and doing what I'm doing - life is a complex and sometimes dissonant chord, but for what it's worth I can't seem to stop listening.
Nebraska in Washington
Just posted! Live video from Empty Sea Studios earlier this month. This song is called "Nebraska", and I wrote it this past fall in...wait for it...Nebraska. Yeah. Hasn't been released yet, but I'm saving it for the next CD. See what you think.
Live Streaming show in HD!
This a pretty cool and exciting thing - my Feb. 1st show at Empty Sea Studios in Seattle, where 4 tracks from the Live CD were recorded, will be streaming live in HD video! Michael at Empty Sea has put together a pretty amazing setup, they're using multiple HD broadcast-quality cameras and studio-quality audio so it's a really, really high quality experience. The show is happening on Friday, February 1st at 8 pm PST, with streaming starting 30 minutes before. The cost to stream is $6.99, and $2 of that goes to benefit Lambert House, Seattle's LGBTQ Youth Center. More info and advance tickets at emptysea.com.

Kickstarter Goal Reached!
Hey all, just wanted to let you know the amazing success of last month's kickstarter campaign! The goal was to raise $3000 in 30 days to mix, master and duplicate the Live CD I've been working on for the past 5 or 6 months. Amazingly, we reached the goal within 2 DAYS. Wow! And people continued to give, until the project was finally funded at $5010 last week. Thanks so much to everyone for getting on board and making me feel so incredibly supported! Just started mixing the CD with Dean Kattari from Portland, OR and will be starting in on the graphic design in the next few weeks, more updates to follow!
