Greetings from Seattle! I haven’t been spending much time on this website lately. It’s been a busy few years of playing music around the world supporting the double release of At the Spine‘s fifth and self-titled album, and The Beautiful Sunsets first album, Coalminers & Moonshiners. There were lots of great reviews of the albums and some good radio airplay around the country. Thanks to all the folks who booked us shows, hosted us, fed us and treated us so well the last few years. It’s been great meeting and playing shows with so many amazing people and seeing so many incredible places.
The new “solo” album is finished and awaiting mastering, manufacturing and distribution. It is a collaboration with three musicians who live in Portland, Oregon, who back up my guitars and vocals with drums, percussion, bass, piano, organ, accordion and vocals harmonies. The album was recorded with longtime engineer and friend, Robert Bartleson at Haywire Recording.
We are very happy with the results and we are working on the layout, design, album cover and manufacture of the album. It will be released in autumn of 2014 and I will spend most of 2015 traveling internationally and playing in support of it. More details on that soon.
In the meantime I’m playing solo acoustic gigs weekly (or more often) around Seattle to keep the catalog fresh and work in the new songs. If you want to book me for a gig, festival, house party, etc., drop me an email at the contact page. In the meantime, keep well, keep in touch and enjoy the video we made for the often requested song “Crumble”:
