So this is exciting. I had a great time teaching a couple of rounds of Lilith Fair Guitar and I thought, “What else am I obsessed with that I can teach to others?” Well, the answer became clear: And, a Songwriting Class and a CAGED Lead Theory class (about playing cool lead parts up the […]

You guys. Since usually my tour calendar is a big ol’ list of “Booking Something Soon,” I had to screenshot this one. It’s definitely the most varied and um…far apart my gigs have been. I’m getting really excited to get on a plane and head to Ireland, Scotland, and the UK with Kiya Heartwood and […]

Sorry, 7th grade teacher guy. It look 20 years, but it happened.

It always takes me a week or so to really feel like it’s the new year. I guess I am a slow poke in that regard, and I always internally cringe at the “new year new you!” advertising that comes at us from all directions. BUT…I am a sucker for a new year, I really […]

We interrupt this travelogue to inform you of a couple of classes I am teaching through Girl Guitar this coming Winter. I absolutely love this organization and all the people in it.

11, Feb 2014

Last month I had the fun of joining my friend Elizabeth Butler for her music video shoot outside of New Orleans. I played acoustic guitar on her song A1A (Settin’ Myself Free) and she asked if I would join in. Kira Small (from Nashville) and Solveig Whittle (from Seattle) were also going to be there, […]

Note 1: Day 3 of my Kickstarter for my next record and WOW. I am humbled and frankly dumbfounded by the generosity that has been shown. I kind of figured I’d be pre-selling a lot of $5 downloads (which is awesome) and threw in the house concert option as an “It’ll round out the list” […]
