Hustle Up Starlings is now available for Pre-Order via CD and Digital Album.
One of the more beautiful parts of being a creative is this moment when our work starts to leave ourselves and enter the lives of others. Believe me when I say, I work hard to make what I've created with my friends worth you're welcoming. I believe we did something particularly special with Hustle Up Starlings. From the music, to the mixing and mastering, and finally to the tactile proof that it happened, a physical manifestation wrapped in plastic. But it comes to mean so much more to me. Hopefully to you as well.
I absolutely love the design and feel of this album art. For the first time in quite some time the lyrics are all included inside a beautiful and cinematic 8-Panel booklet. My friend and great designer, Joe Maiocco, did an amazing job bringing this to life. The paper is heavy and give that sense of smooth texture. The whole thing just looks and feels beautiful. And of course the sound is the exact fullness we intended. I could go on forever, but I won't. It just feels immersive. Like a great cover for a book. Or the opening scenes of a movie that you just know you're gonna love.

Thrilled to share this preview of my cover of Leonard Cohen's "Steer Your Way" for a Record Store Day tribute. It's a vinyl only release by the fine folks at RSD and the amazing Rand Foster. Scroll below to listen to a preview of my version of "Steer Your Way."
As many of you know, Leonard Cohen has been an enormous influence on my life and work. This is a vinyl only release and it comes out on Record Store Day, April 22nd 2017.

Please ask your favorite local record shop to carry it for Record Store Day 2017. Then grab a copy when it's released on April 22nd. I promise you you'll hear Cohen covered with all the affection and commitment his work deserves by people like myself, Joseph Arthur, Glen Hansard, Matt Costa, and Cherry Glazerr with Mike Watt. And so many more talented people. That's just an overview. Rand Foster, who helmed this project, followed it all the way through with every detail. It feels like a perfect and steady homage to such a seminal artist.
