String Quartets and Raisinets

String Quartets and Raisinets

What a crazy weekend! Shot footage for the “Boobs” music video, which mostly involved me wearing all the scarves I own, boxes of Raisinets, and frolicking in the snow in a sun dress. I may have also waltzed in a coffee shop with a “Caution Wet Floor” sign. Anyway, it’s going to be a really fun video and I’m very excited to share it with you all hopefully in the relatively near future! Will post pictures and promo clips soon! Also, had the best recording session of my life yesterday at Herd Studios in Roxbury. Got to work with some incredible musicians, including Avery Ballotta who brought me to tears with his quartet arrangement for “Lost and Found”. Just gorgeous. I can’t believe I get to work with these people. After the session, I proceeded to eat nachos and not even pretend to care about football. BUT THAT HALF TIME SHOW WAS SO GOOOOD. Seriously, though, I don’t know how I am even the same species as Beyonce because that lady is UNREAL. Thanks so much for reading! Will write again soon.  ...

New Video, and Hello Boston!

New Video, and Hello Boston!

Pamela Cumming and I have been working steadily on getting our “We are Pamily” EP released, and we are nearing the final mixing stages!! We are so excited to share this music with you and couldn’t have done it without our Kickstarter supporters and some amazing musicians along the way. Many thanks to Framed Photography (Jason McNamara) for creating such a beautiful video, Graham Greer, Stephane McAlear, Dylan Groulx, and Glenn Forester for the work you have done, and are doing, to make this EP a beautiful reality!!!   Here’s a little sneak peek of what’s to come- hope you enjoy! Almost a week has passed since I arrived in Boston and I just feel so incredibly lucky to have such great humans in my life. It’s been such a surreal experience running into old friends at intersections, in coffee shops, catching up as if no time has passed at all. Working with my dear friends Mike Adams and Seung Hoon has been a freaking dream come true. Yesterday was our first session, and I would honestly be happy releasing what we got done in that short two hour session (but we’re going to add some cool things so that’s not going to happen quite yet!). We recorded ukulele and vocals for “Simple Things” which is going to be the title track of the album. The choice to start with “Simple Things” ended up being a fortuitous and accidentally-symbolic beginning to what I am sure is going to be a long, challenging, and rewarding creative process. I feel like I’m doing exactly what I’m supposed to be doing, and I haven’t felt that way for a while. So much love– thanks for reading about my feelings. You look dashing today 🙂...

Happy New Year! Blue Loon Show January 9

Happy New Year! Blue Loon Show January 9

I’m incredibly stoked to be playing with some of my favorite human beings on January 9th at the Blue Loon!! This show is near and dear to my heart because it means goodbye for a little while to my hometown of Fairbanks, Alaska and some of the loveliest people on the planet. On January 26th, I’ll be traveling to Boston, MA to work with a dear friend and producer, Mike Adams, on my upcoming album and children’s album.   I quit my real job. I got a one-way ticket. YIKES THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING.   I’ve been talking about getting away for a while and just letting myself have a writer’s retreat, and although that’s not exactly what this trip is going to be, I’m looking forward to having some head space to really think about where I’m going in my life and the kind of career I want to pursue. After Boston, I’m planning to visit Nashville, Los Angeles, and a few little places in between to get an idea of where I want to live and what my next steps are going to look like. I’m definitely anxious to be taking this kind of risk and saying no to a steady income, but I know if I don’t do this I’ll kick myself later.   Happy New Year to you all! Wishing you all the best and then some :). Here’s to taking risks and pursuing what you love!   Love,...
