Hey guys! I’ve been super busy with playing in The Last Great Love, working with Carter to run Melodrama Recordings, and cutting scratch tracks for my upcoming album! I can’t wait for this release, should be around December. In the meantime, I’ll be giving you little bits of sing-song to keep ya warm at night.
Check out this video of me playing “Marylyn” live at Conor Byrne in Seattle, and stay tuned for more! If you are in the Seattle area, be sure to catch me at all the open mics around town.

Oh hey! Didn’t see you there! I mean, err, I wasn’t talking to myself in the mirror, that was someone else…they’re gone now. But hey! And the rumors are true! Today’s post is a bit of a blast from the past. Come to think of it, I could have written this off as a new tune – I mean, who ever listened to it back then anyways? The answer is Kate I, and today’s post is dedicated to her, as well as all the other “way back when” fans. Check out the lyrics, and go listen to Eve of Destruction to hear my main influence on this cut!
To kick off this week, I present to you my most recent tune, “Marylyn.” I’ve been working in the studio on this song for a few weeks now: it is a folk-ballad, harmony-laden track in the vain of Dawes and Ryan Adams. Here’s the deconstructed, live version.
