November Music: 19 Voices and What's Next 

It was exceedingly gratifying to help platform 19 women and nonbinary Voices for Choice to benefit the National Network of Abortion Funds on Sunday. Thanks again to those who came out to Casements Bar and supported our efforts. Between the amazing music and OvinLoven's off-the-hook bake sale we raised close to two thousand dollars to help those who need safe, fair reproductive health care. An energizing and inspiring day all around.  My co-conspirator in 19 Voices, Aireene Espiritu, and I plan to do more…

Live music in August 

I'm just returned from three weeks of camping, glamping, gigging, cabining, friends & family-ing, birding, hot springs-dipping, dinosaur-visiting adventures across the Western states. It was good for my mind and body to get out of town, see some new sights and generally reset for what's next. This month features playing a lot of relaxed, outdoor gigs with Bay Station and planning for some special shows and another Love the Bay tour this fall. I'd love to see you out there!

Episode #259 Hangover Sessions 

I was a guest on a recent episode of DJ Webble's Hangover Sessions podcast/radio show. Take a listen here:

 

April Open Studio at Chalk Hill 

At the very beginning of March 2020 I was immersed in a songwriting residency at Chalk Hill, slated to perform some of what I'd worked on there at their Spring Open Studio. Well, that got shuttled as the pandemic shutdowns began. I went home and started a residency of another kind altogether, and porch concerts and other pandemic-related projects got underway. Blink, and here I am, two years later, happy to say that belated Spring Open Studio is happening Saturday, April 2, 1-4pm at Warnecke Ranch and…
