Busy Summer!

  • 06/30/19 – Memphis Concrete, Memphis TN
  • 07/6/19 – Saint Cat’s, Louisville TN
  • 07/7/19 – The Lamplighter Lounge, Memphis TN

Very excited to have been invited to play the third edition of the Memphis Concrete festival. I’ll be performing on the second day (Sunday), which also features Ihcilon, Linda Heck, and others.

EP3: Summertown

I’m excited for the next EP to come out on June 21st. I feel like these three songs inch past the previous creative boundaries of my work, and that you’ll enjoy them.

AND if you care to listen, Lee Grant will be premiering “The Dialogue” on his program The Modern World, heard every Friday on WEVL 89.9FM. You can stream it live at


Kaleidoscope EP2: Lake Lunar

Additional personnel included longtime collaborator Eric Wilson, Kathryn Brawley Suda (who sang on TRIALS), Justice Naczycz (played in The Secret Service, plays in Mystic Light Casino as well as my current live band), and the disembodied voicemail was brilliantly left by Heather Hein.

EP2 is out now. Happy Spring!



So, I’m not gonna lie … the idea of playing a day show is extremely appealing to me, ESPECIALLY when it means I can bring a great band to town. The Empty Room was one of the acts I met while on my Tiny Tour last September, and I’ve been dying to bring them to town. Thus, Freaksgiving was born!

Could it possibly become an annual tradition? I’d like to think so. For this maiden voyage, we’re going to enjoy the musical stylings of Ben Ricketts (Oxford, MS), The Empty Room (Louisville, KY), my own band, and The Margins. I mean, and it’s happening on a Sunday and you know you’re not reeeeallly doing anything.

See you there!

2019 Plans

TRIALS (and the remix companion, TRAILS) was a great success, and I sold nearly every copy. Imagine my surprise when the new album started writing itself … so album number four is underway.

I’ll be releasing EPs with early versions of the songs from the album. Each will see release on the solstices and equinoxes, starting with this year’s Winter Solstice. I’m very excited about the songs already in the works, and I think you’ll enjoy them too.

2019 will also, hopefully, see more shows out of town (back to Kentucky, I hope, and a return to Indiana/Illinois).

More soon. Onward and upward!

2018.07 | Tiny Tour dates and A VIDEO

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 have it!

Another thing of interest is a video for the single remix of “Lifeboat”. If you’re viewing this on a desktop, you should see a player to your left somewhere. Otherwise, you can just click this link.
