“Lost and Found” Single Release

Lost and Found is officially released into the internet! This track was one of my favorites to make on the whole album because of all the great musicians that I got to work with in the process. We recorded the string quartet in Boston, the full band in Nashville, and the vocals in LA, but it still sounds like one complete, marvelous thing. Hope you enjoy! Free download available through July 10 because free is my favorite number.     Arrangement by Avery...

“Hold Me” Single Release

I couldn’t be more excited to share my very first single EVER with all of you. This song has been a year in the making and is very near and dear to my heart because of the musicians and talented engineers who helped bring it to fruition. Special thanks to the Rasmuson Foundation for making this entire project possible. This is such a surreal experience for me and I feel extremely blessed. Plus, I’m about to eat a burrito. THIS IS A GREAT DAY! Hold Me will be available for download for the next 24...

Simple Things- Album Progress

Simple Things- Album Progress

WE ARE IN THE HOME STRETCH! It’s hard to believe that this album has been years in the making and we’re almost done. The next steps are putting the final touches on mixes, mastering, and then coming up with a marketing plan and touring schedule and merchandise and duplication and… Ok maybe there’s a bit more work to be done. But the important part is so close!! So here’s the timeline of how we put this thing together. Mike Adams (my producer) and I met up in his hometown of Erie, PA, where we proceeded to have some much needed catching up and recording session¬†planning time. This included walking on beaches and playing pinball in his parents’ basement, obviously. We hit the road and drove 12 hours to Nashville, TN, where we recorded the majority of the band parts for the album (just instrumentals, no lead vocals). My dear friend Tommy Cantwell owns a studio in Nashville called Big Punch Music, so if you’re in need of a rad recording space, give him a ring. It was an incredible, busy, blurry experience with lots of caffeine and bagels. Many long days later and with the help of many wonderful and talented friends (Kim Auch, Ali Veech, Gavin O’Broin, Lars Thorson, Danny Pratt, Zach Wheeler, Tommy Cantwell, and Molly Lins to name a few!), we had the bones of the album finished. Mike and I journeyed back to Erie to drop off Mike’s car and hop on a plan to Los Angeles. Los Angeles is a seriously insane place. The traffic is awful and the city essentially¬†smells like a giant swimming pool. But it is so magical in so many other ways. The energy is infectious, like laughter or a bad cold, and our friends who live there¬†are pretty much the¬†cr√®me de la cr√®me. We settled in, sleeping on various air mattresses and trying to maintain some semblance of a routine. Jordan King, aptly named, is based in LA and was gracious enough to be our mixing engineer/producer for this album (also he let us sleep on his floor). We recorded lead vocals for the album at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, with the incredible engineering expertise of Sarah Tudzin (pictured below, holding a guitar and looking fly). We also had the privilege of recording Liam Lewis on banjo, mandolin, and fiddle (he is amazing- look at “Space!” in the link...

We Are Pamily Released (with a heavy heart)

We Are Pamily Released (with a heavy heart)

I’m having a hard time this morning. I’m having a hard time thinking about this country founded on liberty,¬†immigration, and acceptance. I keep reading articles and newsfeeds from friends, wondering how this happened. I am deeply saddened and scared for our country. It seems silly to be posting about new music. But I really think the first song¬†of this EP speaks to what’s happening in this nation and world- “Brothers and sisters, what am I to say to you? I don’t know what you’re going through I have not seen what you have seen. Brothers and sisters, what am I to give to you? I don’t know where you’re going to I only know where I have been. Though I am small and we are far away it seems You are not alone, I’m calling out ¬†your name Singing love for the falling rain Joy for the songs it brings Singing peace like the river, peace like the river, Peace like the river in spring”   We need to love our neighbors more than ever, be advocates for the voiceless, and instruments of peace. Be kind to one another, and to my fellow musicians out there- let’s make some art.  ...
