Happy 2019! It’s here, a new year & big beautiful blank slate…
This year I am hoping to take better care of my body , which sometimes gets forgotten about as I run around playing up to 8 shows a month, while also working full time, & being a caretaker to my 95 year old grandmother. She made me believe in fairies , so it’s the least I can do.
There will also be NEW MUSIC in 2019!
I’m again working with producer Myles Baer , of Black Hole Infinity studios who produced my first 3 records, including Hobgoblin’s Hat. He’s also worked with Marissa Nadler, and I am incredibly lucky & happy to have his artistry & friendship in my life.
There are a few shows this month , it would be great to see you!
Jan 5th- Hancock Depot Cabaret- Hancock, NH- with Lisa Bastoni, Tom Smith, Doug Farrell & me featured in the round, also an open mic feature so bring a instrument!
