“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 […]

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 […]

On the wall at Joanne Of course, since I spent a whole post on dinner in Vegas, I have to offer due diligence to the East Coast trip…and yes, we ate well. You’d think this has turned into a food blog. I don’t know, maybe it has. Food and traveling for music go hand in […]

West to East

16, Oct 2014

After a road trip through the wildest of the West, it was over to New York and Pennsylvania with Susan for some rare (and hopefully now, less rare) East Coast shows. We know a NYC local, so we got the grand walking tour of the city (thanks, Norma!). I wore inappropriate shoes. I tried really […]

Another Missive

28, Aug 2014

Hello from fabulous Cedaredge, CO! I like this town. We played at Starr’s Guitars last night and it was hard not to once again spend all my money on an instrument. Luckily I kept it in my wallet (but did acquire a cool strap for the Taylor I bought in Bozeman). I’ve been trying to […]

Notes from the Road

26, Aug 2014

It’s been a while!  We’ve been trucking all over the Western United States (well, about 5 of them, anyway).  Sometimes there’s no internet in these lovely places.  Sometimes AT&T decides you’ve used too much off network data and bricks your phone.  Luckily, we’re back in AT&T radius I guess.  I have a phone and thanks […]
