Spring updates!

Overjoyed to finally have some warm weather over here in Ithaca…and flowers, trees, warm wind…It was a long, long,LONG winter and being able to sit outside is blissful. Juno even got a spring bath this morning, which means she is currently sulking in the corner. We did a lot of writing this long winter, and are finally shaking off the winter hibernation for a few shows…Catch AC+Willie B this spring in Ithaca at Felicia’s Atomic Lounge on May 3rd, or a very special show at the Living Room in Brooklyn with Eszter Balint on May 29th. I’ll also be producing another session with talented young singer Canen, this time joined by Willie, Mike Stark, and avant-garde cello master Hank Roberts. I look forward to posting some results from the session. Dates in Europe are getting added every day, so be sure to check the calendar! Here’s to you, spring!

New videos,spring tours!

Happy Sunday, beautifuls! After the coldest February in recorded history, we are beginning to thaw out here in NY. There are a few hopeful crocuses pushing through, and lots of mud and slush rain. At this point, anything feels better than the biting wind and negative numbers. We’ve officially release “The Birth of the Stars” in Europe- you can find more information here. Dates are coming in for our European tour this fall, see the tour page for details. I’m also leaving for a few dates with Haunt the House this week! We’ve got two new videos out from the show at the Triple Door- the most beautiful venue on earth! Check them out here and here.

March Tour!

Did I call the last post “not-so-bleak midwinter”? I think that can be revised to “never ending winter wasteland” that the East Coast has become. There have been days when no amount of clothing seems to do the trick, the only option is staying at home, in pajamas. Cabin fever is setting in for most of us. I’ve been unable to play guitar recently, due to tendon injury, but the songwriting for the next record is trucking along on the piano. I think there will be an interesting musical evolution from this winter, I’m excited to see what comes out. I’m very excited I’ll be joining fabulous Rhode Island band Haunt the House on their spring tour…dates in the tour section…I’m hoping beyond hope that there is some warmth and flowers to be seen! Lot’s of great press rolling in for Johnny Dowd’s new record as well, check it out here. I hope wherever you are, it is at least over 20 degrees with no more than 2 feet of snow. XOX
