The Pretender (Jackson Browne) 


When I sit down, alone with my guitar, this is one of the songs I find myself playing. Jackson Browne has a unique way of connecting to the underlying heart of everyday life. To me, this song says just about everything needed to be said about what it's like to be an artist while yearning for the stability of a normal life.

(Not So) Quiet Summer 

Instead of playing a bunch of shows this spring/summer, I decided to finish up my MFA degree and graduate. This meant finishing the novel I've been writing for two years. But music is still being made, and I'm working on an EP of new songs. I can't wait to share it with you after I pack up and move to California in a month. Oh yeah, I'm moving to California in a month.

More to come,
