Home from Europe!


My tour-mate Alex Wong wrote to you a couple of days ago to say Thank You. I wanted to reach out as well, now that we are now back home (San Francisco for me, Nashville for Alex) after our tour through Europe and the UK. As Alex mentioned in his email, sometimes it can be really hard to re-adjust to home life after being on such an amazing adventure, playing music, and meeting awesome new people such as you.

It was so much fun to meet you, and an honor to play music for you. Thanks for taking the time to listen to us, and share your stories and your beautiful cities with us.

Alex and I cannot wait to come back and visit you again. We're hoping to make our next tour next spring! If you, or a friend, are interested in hosting us for a house concert in your own home, or if you know of an intimate venue in your area at which you would like to see us play, we would LOVE to hear from you any time.

October 2016



Happy October. This is one of my favorite months. I love the rain, and cool mornings with hot tea. I like to curl up in the back window, with the gentle sun and one of my guitars. It's excellent songwriting weather.


I'm making my way up the West Coast this coming week. If you are in the area, I would LOVE to see you, hang out, and catch up. I'm also always eternally grateful for the friends you send my way. CHECK DATES SECTION for details!

Summer TOUR - East Coast and Mid West


How is your summer so far? I've been bouncing around the country as usual, and today I find myself on the way to the East Coast to play a few shows this month. I'll post my schedule below. If you're in the area, I would love to see you! CHECK DATES SECTION for all the haps!!



May 2016


If you haven't heard, the band and I have been playing a Tuesday, WEEKLY RESIDENCY in San Francisco since I've been home. These shows have been some of the most fun I've had to date. They're casual and spontaneous. We play new songs, some old ones, and every once in a while we'll break into a dance party.  And, since we're having such a good time, and since you keep showing up to hang out with us, we've decided to extend these shows through the end of May!

Spring Tour - with the BOSE Troubadours 


I'm waving at you enthusiastically (via the Internet) from the backseat of a vehicle, headed out west on the second half of my Winter 2016 Tour. (West Coast dates LISTED IN DATES SECTION above!)


I started this trip off in cold, mid February at Folk Alliance International, (a crazy fun music conference in Kansas City.) There, I met up with my insanely amazing and inspiring touring mates for the first half of my journey: Alex Wong (and his dog Charlotte,) and Korby Lenker. We gallivanted around the east, braving snow storms, talking in phony accents, drinking way too many milk shakes, and making music for as many people as we could. We traveled from KS to NY to GA and eventually to TN.


After a goodbye show at Alex's studio, Angelhouse South in Nashville, I hitched a ride to SXSW in Austin, TX to meet up with my beautiful pals in the BOSE Troubadours (the incredibly talented likes of Jamie Kent, Matthew Szlachetka, and Jeff Campbell.) We somehow managed to fit our four guitars, and my mandolin, clean socks, CDs, and snacks in the back of Matt's Nissan and we are currently making the haul from TX to CA and up to OR and WA.


It's pretty cool to be reaching out to youfrom the desertoutside of El Paso, but we have a lot of great shows coming up and we would love to see you in person! We promise to show you a good time with lots of fun stories and 4-part harmonies at our in-the-round style shows! Come see a show near you! (CHECK DATES PAGE!)

Winter TOUR - DOERS and DREAMERS - with Alex Wong and Korby Lenker

I'll be meeting up with the insanely talented Alex Wong (who produced my latest CD, Running on Machinery,) and Korby Lenker (another absolutely amazing artist you will love!) in Kansas City for the Folk Alliance International Conference. We'll be running around the Westin playing showcases way past our bedtime. We then head east to New York, and make our way south for Atlanta, and eventually turn back to Nashville, TN. ALL DATES LISTED ON DATES PAGE!

BOSE Troubadour Tour coming to San Francisco, March 26


Jeff Campbell, Jamie Kent, Matthew Szlachetka and I toured together last year, collaborating and singing crazy 4-part harmonies. We're bringing this fierce in-the-round to the west coast this winter and stopping in San Francisco at Doc's Lab on March 26th. I love this intimate, all-ages, listening venue, but it's small, so get your tickets now for a great dinner/show experience. 

Tickets available here!
