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…
