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!
CALDERA released June 11th & NW TOUR
Posted on May 5, 2013, 10:30 pm
Hey friends
so, firstly, i would like to announce that CALDERA, my fancy new record will be released into the world on June 11th. Our CD release party will be at the Cactus Cafe in Austin Texas on June 13th with the delightful Rebecca Loebe (BUY TIX HERE!!). On June 11th you will be able to get a copy of Caldera from our store as well as from iTunes & bandcamp and whatnot. Hooray!
Also, the delightful Rebecca Loebe and i will be touring the Pacific Northwest starting May 9th-May 18th. Check the TOUR PAGE for all our Oregon & Washington dates. We'd love to see you out at some shows and i *may* have copies of Caldera for you there as well. Shhhh... don't tell! Or actually, DO tell!
hope you have a lovely spring.
Posted on April 3, 2013, 5:12 pm
Ok you guys!
exciting things going on. First off, CALDERA will be released to the world on TUESDAY JUNE 11th. I can't wait for you to hear it.
Secondly, I am touring a bit this spring to the East Coast in April with my sweet Andrew Pressman on bass and to the West Coast in May with the loveliest Rebecca Loebe. Please check out the tour page for dates.
Thirdly, the FOLK documentary is premiering at the Nashville Film Festival on April 19th. I can't wait for it to be out in the world.
Post-Folk Alliance & Springtime plans
Posted on February 27, 2013, 3:39 pm
Hey friends!
Hope you are enjoying the almost Spring as much as we are in Austin (the land of mostly Spring and sometimes hellish heat). Andrew and Emmett and i bundled up and went to Toronto for the International Folk Alliance conference. It was a blast! We played shows with Sam Baker & Steve Poltz and Andrew played with Nels Andrews & Robby Hecht as well. There are some great pictures up on our blog --->  We'd sure love it if you checked it out.
CALDERA is almost done. It is by far our best work yet. I cannot wait for you to hear it, and if you are our a part of our kickstarter team, we sent you a song to listen to already! Hope you liked it! It is not too late to join our team, just send an email to if you'd like to contribute to our cause and you will get the same benefits as our existing backers. Call it a kickstarter extension! Promotional campaigns are a hefty expense for independent artists and we are currently trying to navigate those deep waters without the benefit of a record label. All the while, so grateful for your involvement and very excited about the months to come.
We will be traveling a lot beginning in April, including west coast and east coast tours and then this summer we will be all over the map. check out the TOUR page for details. We are always looking for amazing people to host house concerts, they're the modern day folksinger's bread and butter! just send an email and we will figure it out.
