I've got my rockin' Milkmen rhythm section back together for some heavier sets this June. Jacob, Brian, and I are upping our game for a very special show at Pyramid Scheme. We're super stoked to be opening for the epically awesome SCREAMING FEMALES in the sickest venue in town. This trio is killer. Get your tickets now before they sell out!
Home from the MNOE mini tour. Lot's of laughing, stretching, and music making. Cheers to the nicest mega-goof-troupe of musicians a gal could ask to play and travel with. Ya'll are a bunch of sweethearts. A big thank you to Cliff Bell's, Fulton Street Collective, and RHINO MEDIA for hosting us in their beautiful venues/spaces. And the warmest regards to all the kind listeners that came out eachnight and made this run of shows just magical. My heart is filled.
This mini tour was part of MNOE's Pledge Music campaign to record their debut album at Sonic Ranch in Texas. They have 13 days left to meet their goal and still have a ways to go to meet thier goal. You can pre-order the album, receive a one on one music lesson with a MNOE band member of your choosing, or you can even purchase MNOE pianist, Mark Niskanen's grand piano. There are a lot of different rewards for pledging your support. So if you haven't visited the pledge music page yet, take a gander and do what you can to back this magnificent group of artists.

Burst Theory is the winner of the Van Gogh World Cinema Screenwriting Award. I wrote the score for this film a while back. It's exciting to see how far this film has traveled. Huge congratulations to writer and director, Zac Page.

Just got added to an already stellar lineup at The Corner Record Shop in Grandville, Michigan. I would've been down there anyway to get those awesome Record Store Day deals, so why not play some tunes while I'm at it. I'll be christening some new gear and singing a couple new tracks too. My set should start around noon. Hope to see you there.

Oh boy, this is big. So happy to share that Nashville's all-round-cool-dude, Jonathan Timm, will be releasing his debut 'Fever Dream' on June 26, 2016!
A while back, I had an adventure down in Nashville and recorded cello parts for the album. Looking back on that week, I'm pretty sure we spent half the time giggling like children and two-stepping our way around town. The other half we spent in the studio, quietly in tears, moved by the expression and duende in Jon's voice. This boy is true blue and these songs got under my skin, for sure. June can't come quickly enough.
Check out the video below for the Fever Dream teaser.
