Music for humans...
I have a new EP of songs I wrote on piano over the summer coming out here on Spotify (and all online stores) on December 4th. It’s called Life Is Beautiful. I hope it’s as useful for you as the process was for me.

I have a new full length album written but I’m waiting for that conscientious time ahead where we can be in rooms together making music. 

In the meantime... I’m very happy to announce Strays Don’t Sleep, my ambient folk adventure with Neilson Hubbard, has a new EP out. It’s our first new music in nearly 15 years. It’s beautiful.
I’ll also released a collection of 7 instrumental tone poems called Current EVENTS on October 8th here on Spotify for the first time. It was originally shared exclusively via my website just before the 2016 election. It felt appropriate to share it in a wider fashion as we approached the 2020 election here in the U.S. since it’s an ode to autumn in hard times. It’s ultimately looking for hope.
Check out my curated career spanning playlist, you’ll find some of my favorites (new & old) right there. It’s called “Selected Songs”. It’s on my homepage.
Your listening, purchasing and advocacy means the world to artists like myself. Save, share and playlist anything you love. It helps more than you might know.
Stay hopeful and healthy out there.
