Hey There Friends
I am doing very little touring at the moment and for the next year or so. Who knew that raising two kiddos would take so much energy and time!? Ha! We all knew that! Looking back on how much touring we did with Emmett in his first year, i wonder if we were CRAZY. Anyhow, I am still making music and singing songs and the best way to find out about all of that is to sign up to be a Patron Of The Arts. How does one do that? Well, there is a website called PATREON whereupon you can sign up to be on the ground floor of the music i make for as little as one dollar a month. You can get songs before anyone else has heard them, pictures, blogs, and even pumpkin bread. I am making a new EP with Paul Curreri who is a genius. You can hear it before anyone else if you  SIGN UP HERE!!!!
and thank you so much
more soon!
Baby #2 almost here!

Hey friends,
it's been a lovely summer, we spent a few beautiful days in Island-y bliss at the Vancouver Island Folk Fest, some time in my hometown of Portland, OR and recently in Fayetteville, AR at the Roots Fest. It's been busy and i've been getting bigger and bigger! We are so excited to welcome our second son in upcoming weeks, as well as a new recording project with the amazing Nels Andrews! More on that later. Please check out the tour page for info on when & where we will be before and after the baby.
thanks so much for your support!

Well, we had an insane and amazing SXSW experience. We played a ton of shows and met some great musicians. I will be solo in California the last two weeks March, Andrew will be out with Ben Kweller a lot in April and i will be home playing a few Austin gigs in the lovely Texas springtime.
hope you and yours are well
New year!

Two things:
frist, the HUFFINGTON POST published a blog i wrote. It was an open letter to Miley Cyrus, Sinead O'Connor and Amanda Palmer, responding to their open letters and tweets. Basically, i butted my head into the conversation. Classic. Read it here: OPEN LETTER!!
second, the amazing and wonderful Rebecca Loebe and i are headed off on a tour of the Northeastern Seaboard, starting with Club Passim on October 16th. Come hang out with us!! we have such a great time playing together, i bet you will have a great time listening.
August and everything after

Hey my dears
Andrew and i are off on tour for the last two weeks of August. Hopefully the blazing inferno of Austin, TX will cool down a little by the time we get back. We love these places we are going, the dear dear Midwest... including the Fayetteville Roots Fest & Storyhill Fest. Two of our absolute favorite festivals to play. If we ever leave Texas, you could find us in Fayetteville, AR. Hope to see you out on The Road! In other news, we will be playing a show on Sept 19th at Winflo in Austin to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary! We will also be playing some other shows in Austin in November with Rebecca Loebe & 3 Penny Acre which will serve as fodder for a live record we will be putting out with Goose Creek Records. More on that later.
Have a lovely rest of your summer. Eat some berries and lay in the grass with a hottie.
2 NW shows!

Hey Friends
Just a quick note to say that i have two last minute shows in Portland & Seattle this weekend.
I'll be opening for the wonderful Melissa Ferrick at the Triple Door in Seattle on Saturday the 20th of July and the Doug Fir in Portland on Sunday the 21st. I do hope you can come, i'm pretty excited!
Also, there's something you can do that is very helpful to me... If you have our new album Caldera, and you like it, just hop over to iTunes and write a review of the record. That would be amazingly helpful of you. here's the link:
thanks yous!

Today, June 11th, is the release day for our new record CALDERA!
We are so excited to put this record out into the world. You can check it out at the store page, at iTunes, or at cdbaby! If you already have the album because you were one of our treasured 644 kickstarters backers, we would really appreciate it if you could head over to iTunes or Cdbaby and write a review of the record. That really helps. Thank you so much for being a part of our team!
