Happy 2019! 

Happy New Year all! Heading out to the Southwest next month and looking for shows on 2/13 in Albuquerque and 2/26-27 in the Denver area if anyone has connections or is interested in a house concert. Lots of festivals, travels and plans for this year, check back! 

Free Christmas Download 

Hey y'all! I made a little Christmas present for you, it's a recording I did this past week of one of my favorite Christmas songs, In The Bleak Midwinter. Check it out, it's a free download and just a small way of saying thanks so much for your support. Much appreciated and hope you have a beautiful season! 

The Simple Life  

 At long last, here it is! The culmination of a few years worth of writing and an Iowa winter spent huddled in a heavily carpeted room with a few mics and a lot of ideas. The Simple Life for me is a really, really personal album about a lot of different kinds of struggle, specifically the loss of my father and also some mental health issues that have had their teeth in me for years. This isn't a metaphorical album or a collection of song-stories, but more of what I hope is a deeply revealing portrait of part of my inner world. Take a listen, it's available exclusively through my website through the month of July as a download and a physical CD. Hope the music resonates with you and thanks for tuning in.  

The Simple Life Available July 12th! 

I've been pretty much buried the past couple of weeks in bubble mailers, packing tape, stamps, boxes and twine. The great news is that it's because I've been mailing out kickstarter bling and copies of my new CD :-) I wanted to announce that the new album, The Simple Life, is going to be available for download here on my website starting on July 12th. It'll be here exclusively for a couple of weeks before showing up on iTunes later in the month. Physical copies will also be available for you old-school folks who really dig the sound of a nice, shiny disc :-) Excited to bring this music to you all & thanks for your support! 

We Did It!  

Thanks so much to everyone for backing my kickstarter! I'm super excited to say that we were 105% funded and we're already working on graphic design and mastering. I'm just really, really excited to bring this collection of honest, vulnerable and very personal songs to you. This album is a little more intimate than some things I've done in the past few years - there are really no drums on it, except for a few handmade ones and a pair of brushes on a desktop or guitar case. OK, and I did use a suitcase for a kick drum a couple of times. But mostly I really wanted to give the songs and the lyrics a chance to shine and speak for themselves with just minimal production. Here's a little preview of the unmastered tracks just to give you some idea of the flavor of it:
