To my backers and all those who supported me through this year and a half process…. you put your money and faith in my when I had nothing to give you in return. Here is my gratitude, the best damn record I could have possibly made, all thanks to you.
You guys made this record. I just wrote it. Thank you.

Terrible blurry photo from tonight…. SURPRISE! I did a Sofar Sounds secret concert in SF. The staff running it could not have been nicer and the audience was so attentive you could hear a pin drop! Except for when I had them clapping along and singing with me. Can’t wait for tomorrow when I get to share this beautiful music with my core fans and community. <3<3<3<3
ONE WEEK AWAY!!!!! I can’t believe the show is only a week away. SQUUUEEEE. Still so much to do but I have amazing friends and everything is chugging along. I can’t wait for this show. Get your tickets now and save $5!
Friends! TODAY I’ll be on the radddiiooooo. I’ll be a guest on Dead to the World with Tim Lynch tonight 8/16 at 9pm Pacific time. Tim will be interviewing me about the new record and then I’ll be performing three songs LIVE to promote the album release and the BIG RELEASE SHOW at Cafe du Nord next week on Friday 8/25!

AHHHHH! IT’S HERE!!! My very first music video is up for the world to see.
It’s for the track “Voodoo Man” off my upcoming album Painted Fan which is coming out on 8/25, the day of my HUGE release show at the Cafe du Nord! This song is about the crushing helplessness of unrequited passion. It feels like you are under it’s spell, and trapped by your own desire. Is it love, or is it the illusion of love?
Please share and comment and tell me all your thoughts! So nervous. 😀 😀 😀
