Lonesome Creek

The new album, Several New Things Under the Sun, is in the can and slated for a summer release! For a sneak peek, here's an oven-fresh track called Lonesome Creek, up now on the ol’ Bandcamp. Thanks to Vanessa Rehder, Daniel Dominic Mancini and Randall Payton for singin', drummin', pickin' and a grinnin' on this one.

Back in the lab

Testing new material on a snowed-in audience at White Eagle Saloon. 1/10/17

Oh, hey there! Curious where I've been? No? Yes? Don't worry Mom, new music is on the way. The set list above offers a sneak peak at some of the song titles you might just see on the next album. I'll leave the rest a mystery for now, but here's a fireside rendition of Smothered and Covered, a tune that's sure to make the cut. Please enjoy, and I'll see you out there.

Postcard Club out today on cassette and digital!

The wait is over! I'm proud to announce the full-length Postcard Club compilation is complete and ready to soar to the top of the Billboard charts. The new album is available both as a free digital download and also the more popular cassette format. You can pick it up right now via Bandcamp...

Postcard Club originally began as a series of digital EPs, each loosely inspired by the images on a stack of vintage postcards. Recording the songs in small batches gave us the chance to experiment with all kinds of styles and sounds, and it turned out to be a really fun and exciting process.

I want to personally thank the dapper and talented Daniel Dominic Mancini for taking on the role of co-producer on this project. You can hear his magical touch in the many atmospheric layers that carry throughout the album. Garrett Burt, Randall Payton, Vanessa Rehder, Jess Abel and Ryan Napolitano also contributed to these songs, and they will be rewarded handsomely once the cassette goes platinum, or whatever it is cassettes do.

Thanks so much for checking out the new jams. Oh, and if you happen to be in or around Portland, the cassette release party is this Friday, January 10 at the Waypost (3120 N. Williams). Randall and Jess will be my humble stage companions, and Nate Wey of Souvenir Driver will open up the festivities. Things should get rolling around 9pm. Hope to see you there!

Beautiful Burbank official video

As we prep for the release of the Postcard Club compilation, here's the first official music video from the set. It's for a lil' tune called Beautiful Burbank. I shot the footage at Tonic Lounge, where my brother-in-law Kurt was tearing it up with his metal band Funeral Age. Sorry for stealing your fans guys, but they looked great on film so I had to. Enjoy!
