After more than a year of work, the new CD "Little Bird" featuring 11 of my songs, arranged and produced by the amazing Art Khu, is complete. I picked up the master earlier this week and the CD will be released officially November 5. Nonetheless, (other) little birds tell me there's a good chance you'll be able to pick up advance copies at some shows before that date. :D. Here's a preview of some of the tracks (if you've missed them )on Soundcloud:

One of the songs on the upcomong CD 'Little Bird', 'Committed Lines,' was partly inspired by the life and work of artist Agnes Martin. Martin was an internationally renowned Abstract Expressionist who lived much of her life in New Mexico, painting highly minimalist works, often based on lines and grids. She was intent upon conveying inner truth and beauty and was relentless in her pursuit. An article about her work, first read many years ago, was, personally, revelatory. Over the years, I've seen some of her paintings in museums in San Francisco and New York. I was very excited about the opportunity to see the Agnes Martin Gallery in the Harwood Museum of Art, while in Taos earlier this week. Before leaving town on Wednesday, we stopped by the museum (the Harwood had a great collection of contemporary New Mexico artists and a fine representation of Hispanic art and religious iconography as well). The 7 pieces at the Harwood were painted to be exhibited together, and a friend of Martin's constructed the wooden viewing seats, providing a serene setting and an ideal vantage from which to enjoy the paintings. Truth, beauty, yes.

What is Acoustic Bistro, you ask? Well...Acoustic Bistro is a cool weekly songwriter showcase curated by presenter KC Turner at the lovely Osteria Restaurant in San Francisco. I'm excited to be among three artists performing Monday, May 13, 2013, when I'll alternate the Osteria floor with two other troubadours, San Francisco's Andrew St. James and Pismo Beach artist Spanky.
I'd really love to see you at this gig and raise a glass between sets.
