Mastered!

7, Apr 2014

Daniel Barrett and Mark Hallman EP 3 is almost done and in my hands. I spent a super enjoyable day at Congress House Studio in Austin with Mark Hallman and Dan last week. Mark is a super producer himself, and known as one of the best mastering studios around amen. It was neat to see […]

Art Happens

14, Jan 2014

EP 3 Update time! The holidays made us all take a bit of a break on the record making front, which was fine. Things are picking up again and I had a meeting with Emily Shirley this week about artwork. This is one of my favorite parts of the process because really, I don’t have […]

What a week! Dan and I spent 2 more days in the studio. There was lots of singing from me, a bass part by Eric Holden, all manner of fun things from Dan, and then Susan came in and sang a really cool part on a tune called “Middle of My Chest.” She even added […]

When Folk Meets Gaga

1, Nov 2013

Kids. I am not even kidding. We are having such an amazing time making this EP. If you all like it 1/8 as much as we have loved making it, you will dig it. I think you will. Right now, as I type, Dan is playing some killer electric guitar on the fastest, rockingest, most […]

First things first…I am Kickstartering my new EP and it is officially LAUNCHED! Let me take a moment to say: “AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!” It feels good to get that out because I had a heck of a time wrapping my brain around it. Kickstarter is a wonderful resource for musicians. Basically, for an indie artist (i.e. not […]

What’s Up

25, Sep 2013

I have to say first of all, my post title made me think of that 4 Non-Blondes song What’s Up, which for YEARS I thought was called “What’s Going On?” because that’s kind of the hook. But no, it’s called What’s Up? Anyway… Firstly I want to say a big thanks to Brian Thompson over […]

Throw You Forward

14, Dec 2011

Sometimes I just crank out a song that should be on the soundtrack to Grey’s Anatomy or some other hip TV show. Did you hear that, universe? SOME HIP TV SHOW. This is from the Rubicon Artist Development Showcase last weekend. It’ll probably be on my next record.

Finding a Thing

13, Dec 2011

Over the years I have had several conversations with Dan about finding a style, a personal sense of fashion, a Thing, if you will. I think we all go through stages of Things…some folks stick with one and some change a lot. Some people don’t give it a thought and some obsess. However you do […]

Keep Every Connection

28, Sep 2011

Well, not the bad ones. Kick those bad connections to the curb before they suck the life out of you. I’m talking about the mental filing cabinet of folks you know, because it’s really fun to flick through the files every so often and pull out two people and stick them together. Good friends do […]

Krav Oh-Maga

15, Sep 2011

This is me trying to look alive after class. Trying. I haven’t had the guts to make a video at krav maga class, as it is only week 1, but I think I’ll be able to sneak some footage here soon. My roommate and Rubicon Year artist, Heather, is in the class, too….THANK GOODNESS. Since […]
