New Kickstarter! 


It's official, the kickstarter campaign for my new CD just launched today! I had a blast making the video and hope you have just as much fun watching it :) Here's the direct link to the campaign:


New CD & Kickstarter 


In Omaha, NE this week just getting started on...working on a new CD! I'm setting up some microphones and my laptop to record some of the acoustic tracks and then will be heading into the studio in the fall to work with some other musicians. Lots of great songs, the working title of the CD is "Ditch Lilies" which is kind of a theme about things that are overlooked and finding beauty in unexpected places. I'm working on another kickstarter which will launch a little later this month - so excited to bring this music to you all :)

Spring update 


A few shows in the midwest next month and then off to Germany for 3 weeks! I'll be playing at the Blue Wave festival in Rügen and doing a few shows in Berlin - in case you have any European cousins that <3 Transgender Americana™, I'm looking for a couple of house concerts the weekend of June 13-15.

In the meantime I've been working on another batch of songs - once I finish these up I feel like I'll be ready to start sorting through them all and figure out which ones are going to be on the next CD. I've been intentionally waiting on putting out another album - part of the reason for that is that I wanted to try writing a *lot* more songs than I usually would. The idea behind that was to give myself a huge mountain of stuff to pick from, but also to let the songs live and breathe on stage a little bit before jumping into the studio. It's been interesting to see which ones "stick" and which ones are content to quietly slip away, but the process is absolutely invaluable and it's shaping up to be a a collection of songs that I'm pretty much head over heels in love with. 

I'll doing another kickstarter this summer once I get back from Europe, stay tuned for updates on that :)

PNW tour 

Excited to head up the the Pacific Northwest next week for shows in Portland, Boise, Seattle and Bellingham! More info here

Fall Tour 

Lots of tour plans coming up in September and October! Leaving this week and will be playing shows all over the midwest and New England - I'll be making stops in Chicago, Oak Ridge TN, Connecticut, Massachussets, Albany NY, Maine and lots of places in between. Details and full schedule on the calendar, look forward to seeing you out on the road! 

Streaming Live on StageIt 

Pretty excited about this - I'm streaming a live show on from my friend Meg's living room in Minneapolis next week! It's pretty amazing what technology has made possible. The show starts at 8 pm CST on Wednesday, June 12 and will run for about 45 minutes. There's also a live chat feed, so you can make requests or comments during the performance. I love the intimacy and connectedness of this format, hope you can make it! More info and tickets at

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. 

Free Christmas Download 

Just wanted to let you know that my Holiday CD (download) is once again available, and it's FREE! Click to download your copy. It has everything from traditional carols and originals to my favorite, which is a golden oldie circa 1500. Hope you're all enjoying a beautiful holiday season, and thanks for your support this year!
