i’ve started using z’s a lot. no clue why. sooo some exciting stuff on the horizon.

i’m printing a short little book/text/essay collection/i don’t know what to call it–it’s a super personal collection of words/journal-y entries i wrote in 2011 and 2012 and it’s called:

sex jams, self help and redemption

for all of you who have heard me sing an r kelly song in the last 4 years, i think you’ll appreciate it even though it’s probably going to make you cry

limited edition (obviously) and all proceeds go to the national abortion fund.


being mastered. i kind of just want to put it out on cassette tapes because i’m on a DIY kick lately and have no real incentive to have a box of 300 records sitting in my room. we’ll seeee

ALSO COMING IN 2014/2015

love you guys, it’s been kinda lonely in SF, if you’re reading this could be cool to comment or shoot me a snapchat or something

homesick EP coming summer ’14


soo for posterity’s sake, i shelved the full album LP idea in favor of just releasing lots of songs as singles/EPs this year. the first EP will be out this summer, it’s called homesick and it’s a full band electric affair.

homesick EP
1) marathon
2) whiskey, green tea
3) we fight
4) drifting away

i recorded it in philly before leaving. much thanks to matt schimelfenig for recording us last minute before i left for the left coast. huge amounts of love to bob burdalski (bass), dan warner (guitar) and nick manta (drums) for laying down some pretty damn good recordings.

much love from my new home in san francisco

Wino Club + Other News

Hey Friends!

Man, life has been busy. The response to the album so far has been really great. I have so many new friends to email back, sorry it’s taking so long!

You can see up top I’ve added a Press section to the site for my first cool feature/write up at BANDxCITY : ) I’ve also added the Wino Club—which is a FREE mailing list subscription to get a song every week from me. If you’re looking for the exclusive Thick Red Wine jams and a personal email from me every week, I think it’s a pretty great deal.

Also for those here in Austin, I’ve updated the Shows page with my dates for next month. The first show at Cheer Up Charlies will be a Sex Jams night where I’ll be mixing in some solo acoustic R&B covers in the full band set along with reading some selections from my book-that-will-probably-never-come-out called Sex Jams, Self Help and Redemption. Very #rare.

The other 2 shows will be with Jason Anderson—who I consider a friend as well as one of the best performers in the history of music. We’re opening for him Saturday May 25th at Holy Mountain (big time real bar full band show!) with the extremely talented Greg Mullen and the Cosmic American Band. Then we have a really special secret show planned for early Sunday night that will certainly be a spiritual experience for those in attendance. Hope to see many of you there!
