New Daytrotter session now streaming on demand! 

Friends,

Here's the video of my Daytrotter performance via Paste Magazine. It's now live for you to stream whenever you wish. If ya love it, please consider sharing it with other music lovers.

Recorded live to tape while a camera is rolling, one take; I play some songs, tell some stories and make a lot goofy faces. Songs performed are (I Just Died) Like An Aviator, Summer Never Ends, Battle Born, Walls by Tom Petty, and Run Rabbit Run. Really was a beautiful experience. The people at Daytrotter are just great.

That was the last show of year barring any surprises. 'Twas a beauty. Hope to see you guys in a room somewhere next year. 

Time to take a breather and enjoy some time with family and friends. 

Stay tuned with me though. We've got some things you've been asking for coming up very soon and more shows next year, solo and with The Northern Wires. And yeah, next year there's gonna be some surprises too!

Be good to each other.

We wanted to invite you guys to take a quiet moment and join us for the World Premiere of our surreal and moody video for "Maybe I'll Disappear." 

Please read about what inspired it and watch it right HERE (or click the image below!): 

"MAYBE I'LL DISAPPEAR"

A giant thank you to American Songwriter for having us. And of course, warm gratitude to Marco and Masha for creating such a beautiful cinema for the song. 

Please share if you're inclined!

 

 

 

 

Working on Something Beautiful... 

We're working on something beautiful for "Maybe I'll Disappear" with Marco North. Really excited about the beauty and texture we'll be offering to the song, to give it the cinema, tone and context it deserves. I always wanted to focus on this song as the weather got cooler. So here we go... I'm thrilled with what I'm seeing so far.  

The story for "Hustle Up Starlings" continues to surprise and excite us. Thank you, guys. All of you.  

Below is the single cover art design, it was executed by my great friend Joe Maiocco. The picture was taken by yours truly. We plan on launching "Maybe I'll Disappear" on November 8th. Hoping we can stay on schedule. Art is patient, so we gotta be too.  

I'll keep ya posted. More details soon.

Proud to announce my new Booking Agent, Jon Folk, at Red 11 Music... 

Friends,

This is my first booking agent in years. My mode for the last 10 years has essentially been staunchly independent and DIY. It's hard to do everything you want to, and do it well this way. As things have slowly grown, I've realized the importance of collaboration in all aspects of the things we do. Music is no different. Each of us have talents, some even have super-powers. Jon and I started talking earlier in the year. He's one of the kindest and smartest people I've met in music. I'm excited to see what his guidance, work and smarts will bring to the story for my work and touring.

And for you, the listeners, what this should mean is that the possibility of me playing near you and in your town has become infinitely more possible. I'm excited. Hope you are too!
