So with the exception of a surprise show in Portland the other day, things here have been more focused on writing, writing, writing… and also, did I mention that I have been writing? All of this is leading up to something- I swear- and I can’t wait to share it with y’all!

Onwards and upwards.

Hey guys, just wanted to say a quick thanks to everyone who came out to the show in Torrington the other night. It was great seeing everybody- hope you had as much fun as we did. Also, Mr Kevin Wolfe and Mr Steve Dunn were amazing so if you missed it, you missed out! I hope to see everyone real soon.

Hey everyone, I will be playing at The Hub in Torrington, CT on 7.30. Being that this is my former backyard, it’s sure to be a good one! Joining me will be Steve Dunn, and Kevin Wolfe who have been awesome enough to agree to back me up for the night- so make sure you are a part of it! Also, BYOB, so…yeah. Tickets can be found here. See you all real soon.

“…How can you just leave me standing alone in a world so cold?”. Truer words never spoken. Heartbroken. RIP Prince.

Just so everyone knows, I have about 20 or so brand spankin’ new songs… now what to do with them…

Also, first wave of dates coming SOON!

Pick up baby.
Feed said baby.
Burp and change baby.
Pick up, feed, burp and change other baby.
Book shows.
Write.
Repeat.

So I try not to get too much into my personal life on here, but as I have been getting a lot of questions like “When are you coming back to such and such?” or “How about a new record?” or “Damn you’re pretty…” I thought I would bring everyone up to speed. Everyone meet Hendrix Isla and Piper Cash McCloud. They are surely already planning how to drive me crazy so wish me luck.

That said, babies gotta eat, so I will see you all soon.

“So this is the new year… I don’t feel any different”. Hope you all had a safe and great Christmas and New Years. 

Normally, I write a “end of the year wrap up” around this time and just look back on the past year. There were many ups and downs but in the interest of ringing in the new year with my best foot forward I am limiting my rear view. Instead, I am looking forward, to what I hope will be a great 2016. I had an open letter at the release of my last record that really left things up in the air. I wasn’t sure what was going to happen, but now I can tell you this: I will tour to all of the places you guys have been asking for. I (God willing) will make a new record- I have about 20 or so new songs. I will keep fucking going without bullshit artists and plastic friends leaching off of me because honestly, I have been doing that all along. At the end of the day, it’s been me and all of you, which I would absolutely be unable to do any of this without. SO… more details as I get them, and I will get them. I love you all, see you real soon. 

PS Here is the long awaited video to “Pieces”- Many many thanks to Annie and Larkin Lundell, JJ Fadoir and Kate Blake for all of your hard work on it. Please share the shit out of it, I’d love to see this thing get a ton of views. XO
