european tour, november 2017. three weeks from tomorrow i’ll be meeting up with my dear friends Midas Fall somewhere in Europe as they wend their way towards Slovakia. very grateful to them for inviting me along on this tour of theirs, and to the magnificent Christos at Love Light Productions for his help with booking. ongoing […]

my dears, realized very suddenly and painfully last week that there’s a good chance i’ll implode if i keep pushing forward this way. but far worse, possibly compromise the album i’ve been working towards for the past three years. since april, when i bravely/foolishly announced a release date of october 17th, i’ve worked without a single day […]

day 1 of recording at the house of miracles. the next five months are a tunnel to october 17th that i’m digging with my hands. at the other end, in a blinding pillar of light, next to a lake of champagne in a valley full of drunken birds, is album #4. it’s a nearly impossible goal […]

i’m here, for whatever that’s worth. though i’ve also been far away. some nights when i’m listening back to rough recordings of my new songs i feel like i should try to say something while my heart is wrapped in lightning and my perpetual discomfort around writing online updates is locked away in the storm […]

‘trains we both missed’ and ‘pale blue black holes’ are now available on iTunes, as well as a wide spectrum of other digital retailers. ‘sightings’, a lone song that has lived quietly and exclusively on bandcamp since i put it out in 2013, is finally available through the same channels. (a special note about bandcamp: […]

my two new songs are available here, right now: https://raisedbyswans6.bandcamp.com/album/trains-we-both-missed-pale-blue-black-holes-7 i thought i could wait until tomorrow afternoon to release them – my original ill-conceived plan – but i can’t.  my emotions are running way, way too high, and i haven’t slept the past couple of nights.  plus i’ve been drinking some whiskey. so it’s […]

1. i’ll be releasing two new songs from my upcoming album this Tuesday, September 12th. arrived home from the studio at 2:30 this morning with tears drying on my face from listening at volumes that made the car i was driving feel like it had grown wings. one last session tomorrow evening and all will be […]
