Plotting out my first (of many) Tiny Tours. I’m coming to visit you on the following dates: September 14th (Friday) | Indianapolis, IN – TBA September 16th (Sunday) | Louisville, KY – OPEN Community Arts Center With any luck, I’ll be visiting Chicago on 9/15, but we’re still sorting that out. More news as I… Continue reading 2018.07 | Tiny Tour dates and A VIDEO
The few months after the ‘victory lap’ of releasing an album are always a little weird when you’re doing it all on your own. I had a couple things in mind months ago. First off, I knew I wanted to spotlight at least one more song from TRIALS, so I picked “Lifeboat” as a lot… Continue reading 2018.06 |What next?
Here is a FREE download of six songs from the CD release party on the 14th. I hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoyed playing it.
TRIALS is out! Click here for lyrics. I got to stop in to Radio Memphis and talk about the album for almost an hour, which was loads of fun. I checked in with Shangri-La and Goner and made sure the CDs were out, and talked it up to everybody (and their mother). Tomorrow night is… Continue reading 2018.04 | TRIALS Unleashed
So it turns out the duplication is the easy part of this whole process. Actually, getting some of the local press together has been easy as well. The venue, however, has been absolutely aggravating. The release party was originally to happen at a cool space in Cooper-Young called Sounds Good Memphis. Good room, good sound,… Continue reading 2018.03 | Releasing A CD is Hard
TRIALS is finished. It features contributions from my friends and occasional bandmates J.D. Reager, Josh Stevens, and Eric Wilson, along with guest appearances by Kathryn Brawley Suda, Robert Poss (Band of Susans), Cat Hall (Dissonance), and Nina Miraj (Coke Weed). I’m very excited to share it with you and will let you know how to… Continue reading 2018.02 | TRIALS
“Let Me Be Right” began its slow evolution a decade ago, as a tune I wrote just so I’d have something easy to play at an open mic. It first found release under its original name, “Shooting Holes”, on my lo-fi EP I recorded on vacation in Eugene, Oregon. Always felt good but unfinished. Again,… Continue reading 2018.01 | “Let Me Be Right”
“Tabula Rasa” is a new very old song. I originally wrote it in 2001 or 2002, back when I decided I couldn’t play well with others and started a project called The Jeta Grove. Very naïve stuff, but this one was a great pop song. Flash forward to 2016, when I performed it on one… Continue reading 2017.12 | “Tabula Rasa”
Cats: Po is one of my best friends. We’ve been through some stuff. I’m almost certain he thinks he’s a dog. Maybe he thinks he’s human. Grumbles in his sleep – I love him. Dot and I have more of what I would consider a father/daughter dynamic! How I Sleep: At bedtime, I like to… Continue reading 2017.11 | Self Portrait
We played one of our coolest shows yet on Sunday night. Earlier in the year, I made the acquaintance of one John Davis. You might remember him as one half of the indie duo Folk Implosion (his partner in that project being Lou Barlow of Sebadoh/Dinosaur Jr. fame). The suggestion was made that he come… Continue reading 2017.10 | Show Explosion
