I'm a Songwriter, Graphic Designer, and Photographer living in Austin, TX. This is my home online for those things. Poke around: read, look, listen, share, and drop a line. I'm happy you're here.
1 week from tonight — PLEASE JOIN US at One2one. I'm so excited for this. I get to open the night with a FULL BAND comprised of some of my very favorite folks (Noëlle, Andre, Nathan, Jim), followed by The Belle Sounds (8pm) and The Damn Torpedoes (10pm). Between all of us, we have 4 December birthdays — *three* on Dec 10th and one on the 21st — so we will have on our party shoes. As always, LOVE to see your face
I can't believe it's December already — 'Tis the Season ya'll! Here's one from me.
NEW TUNE: Guests of Ghosts
Thank you to the Independent Music Awards — My song Dolores is nominated under the category Story Song, and my record Duotone is nominated under Pop EP. Whut?! #gratitude
NEW TUNE: Dolores, out now! Put it in your ears.
For some background—I watched Making A Murderer and then I wrote this song. I don't know if Steven Avery's guilty or not, but I was struck by the toll all of this has taken on his parents—and for so many years. Steven's mother, Dolores, in particular. The scenes of her getting up early, reading the paper, cold dark mornings driving to the prison, front row in trial.... a mother's love, unwavering. I just really felt the need to give her some encouragement.

THURS.DEC 10 at One-2-One. My awesome friend and bandmate in The Belle Sounds, Noelle Hampton, was born on Dec 10. And so was I. To celebrate we're playing this double bill. The Belle Sounds will play a full set and I get to open the night with a few songs, AND The Belle Sounds as my band. AND there might be horns. AND, producer extraordinaire, Mark Hallman, might make an appearance. Head. Exploding. Music starts at 8pm. Please join us!

The Hallman Family suffered severed flooding during the Memorial Day floods. Mark Hallman produced Duotone at his studio, the Congress House Studio, and I'm honored to call him friend. Local Austin musicians came together to made this Mixtape with all proceeds benefiting the Hallman Family. 90% of the songs were produced, recorded, mixed and/or mastered by Mark and André Moran at The Congress House.
