This is a new day.
A new decade, & a new year.
I’m incredibly happy & grateful to announce
that I’ll have a new full length album,
“ghost folk”, coming out in 2020 on Cosirecords,
a vinyl only record label out of Germany, who
also put out The Song the Songbird Sings.
I will also be doing a few shows in Amsterdam & Germany this Fall,
so see you there my faraway friends!
Last month I homemade a little covers project, which is still up on my Soundcloud
until January 6th , which is The Epiphany,
the Feast of the Three Kings & I will take them
down as we take down our Christmas tree.
The venerable Cover Lay Down had some
nice things to say about it :

13 Covers of Christmas, a home-recorded, mixed-bag set released a day at a time in the final days leading up to Christmas itself.
of the choices here are simple gifts, learned
quickly and sourced broad –

but several are true-blue Christmas songs,
including soft and slippery
deconstructions of holiday songs from Elvis,
John Denver, In The Bleak Midwinter and
Act now to hear it: like her music, these annual advent sets are as fleeting and fragile
as they are hauntingly beautiful,
and are as likely as not to disappear before the passing of the year.”
