Raised By Swans’ first concert in what feels like eleven aching eternities (if only to me) will be happening on Saturday, September 18th, 2021, at Nachsommer, an open-air music and arts festival in Bamberg, Germany. it will be a solo performance, and i’ll be playing songs from all of my albums. to say that i hope to see […]

this update brought to you by a flash flood of dopamine. leaving shortly for the studio with a bursting heart. and an apple. broke through some final walls with volume 2 this week. including deciding that it’s not part 2 of album #4, as originally planned – it’s album #5. volumes 1 and 2 will […]

this picture is a detail of the design of an electronic board that as of 2022 will be orbiting the earth as part of the inner workings of multiple satellites. it was sent to me because of what its designer decided to engrave upon it as an easter egg. thank you again to Montaser (the […]


turns out that releasing an album (even half an album) during a global pandemic is a sublimely lonely experience. definitely a “would not recommend”. but i’m grateful to all of you. and the first 12 songs have been let out into the meadows. so everything is okay. i’ve just never believed that the internet is […]

lyrics for the first four are posted now. also: these four finished songs will remain as is, but for those who have pre-ordered, please don’t be alarmed if you happen to notice the song order (or the titles of the other songs) on ‘volume 1’ changing between now and february 9th on the bandcamp page. […]


it’s out now: https://raisedbyswans6.bandcamp.com/ only because i need you all to know how much this means to me, how much it feels like i’ve just uploaded not music but blood into this laptop, everything you hear on these songs (and on the future album) is me alone. i even played the drums, which involved me […]

four songs from volume 1 of my fourth album will be released today at 1:01 pm EST, on bandcamp exclusively. seven related things while my brain is still functioning: 1. the four songs are free, but a digital pre-order will begin at the same time – if you pre-order volume 1, you’ll automatically be sent […]
