Stockholm Redux

18, Dec 2015

Hello from Austin, Texas…it’s nice to be back and amongst the sunshine. We had a grand last couple of days in Stockholm after the tour officially ended. The charm of that city never let up, and we saw old stuff and pretty stuff and pretty old stuff. THIS WAS OUR HOTEL. Thank you, cheap online […]

We had a good 3 day stand in Åmål and got to wander around the town a bit. It was a cute downtown area and I had my first real experience with what I call “glitter frost,” where the humidity would freeze all over everything and just sparkle. Kind of awesome. Our last day there […]

Baldersnäs Herrgård

12, Dec 2015

We got to visit the glorious old Swedish manor turned hotel called Baldersnäs Herrgård this week. One of my favorite stops on this tour! Not sure if it was the fact that the grounds reminded me of Lara Croft’s Tomb Raider house from when I played the game briefly in 1998 (before I decided I […]

Sweden Sightseeing!

10, Dec 2015

We’ve had great shows and met great people, but I am super glad we’ve had some time to stop and see some cool landmarks on this Sweden tour! Aside from the generally stunning vistas we see daily, here are some highlights. Me and the Baltic Sea in Norrtälje This runestone lives on a hill near […]

“Stockholm syndrome, or capture-bonding, is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors, sometimes to the point of defending and identifying with the captors.” I mean…Stockholm did not keep us captive or anything but I GET IT because the minute we set foot in Old Town, […]

Sweden: In Bredsjö!

1, Dec 2015

It’s been an excellent time in Bredsjö, which I am told is the heart of the heart of Sweden. It’s rural and full of stately trees that cast one of those classic, dark silhouette scenes against the sky when the sun sets. It’s also full of lakes and gorgeous views. Sofie and Susan performed and […]

Sweden Bound

24, Nov 2015

Man. Happy Thanksgiving Week! It’s actually here. I haven’t even processed the holiday because my sights have been set on my first trip to Europe (!!), and we leave Wednesday. I am excited to accompany Susan and our friend and Swedish guru Sofie Reed for 20 days of gigs and workshops across the country. We’ll […]

Headed Home

12, Sep 2015

Phew! We left home August 5th, and we’ll head back after the Lubbock show tonight. It’s been a pretty spectacular tour, with grand views, great gigs, nice people, friendly hosts, excellent food…I know people gush on social media in superlatives but we had ourselves a pretty good time if I do say so. Some highlights […]


5, Sep 2015

Long time no blog again! Like…for all of August. We’ve been having a great tour across the Northwest and are in the last week of it all – winding it down in New Mexico. We’ve had great gigs and hung out with some great people! Look at all those cool shirts! We’ve been shooting some […]

Los Angeles Recap

3, May 2015

I had a really great time in Los Angeles…learned a lot about the city, played some music, heard lots more music, and met some really awesome folks! Grandmaster tour leader and connector of all things LA, Toni Koch from The Talent Tree Presents, was my hostess and chauffeur. I played an open mic at Kulak’s […]
