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

Not-so-bleak midwinter

We’re all hunkering down for the tail edge of hurricane Juno (my own Hurricane Juno has no tail). Thanks so much to everyone that joined us on our West Coast tour- we had a wonderful time at The Triple Door, the Alberta St Pub, and The Green Frog. We’ll have video from the tour up soon, and thanks to Michael Bauer for the wonderful photographs. In other news, Willie and I have begun writing the next record (to be recorded late this year and released in 2016.) I also had the pleasure of working with Johnny Dowd on his new record That’s Your Wife on the Back of My Horse, which will be released around the world in March 2015. Check it out at Johnny’s website. More soon!

Happy New Year!

Happiest of New Years, friends! We’re ringing in the New Year here in Ithaca by wearing some serious bathrobes and rarely leaving the house before the crunch of the year starts. I hope you are enjoying some serious winter Hygge (The Danish word for extreme coziness). In music news, Willie and I are preparing for our upcoming Pacific Northwest tour, with shows in Porltand, Seattle, and Bellingham. I’ll also be running some workshops at Dusty Strings Music Shop on 1/10. You can find out more about them here. I’m also pleased that “The Birth of the Stars” has been named the record of the year by the Ithaca Journal. You can see new videos from our recent CD release shows here: “The Auchengeich Mining Disaster Live in Brooklyn” and a new song, “Lorelei.” Have a wonderful New Year and I dearly hope to see you all.
