I am a singer-songwriter, piano player and other-instrument player, living in Seattle and Vashon Island, WA. My music bounces around amidst the genres of indie-pop, indie-folk, nerd-rock, and esoteric/eclectic.

Had a wonderful time playing in the John Prine tribute at Seattle's Sunset Tavern the other night. All of the performers were great, the audience was plentiful and enthusiastic, and special thanks to Norman Baker and The Backroads for organizing and playing "house band."

And... now... here is Ten Thousand Things! This started as a one-song recording project. I had one older song called "Love and Sadness" that a friend liked a lot. Next thing I knew, I was making a five-song EP. And then it became a full ten-songer. They are all older songs from my more folky days, that had never had serious studio recordings made. Except "Acid Tongue" which is a Jenny Lewis cover.

I am currently at work recording a new album of old songs. These are all songs I wrote in the nineties and early 2000s, and they are pretty much in the "Folk/Americana" genre. At the time I wrote them, I didn't quite know how to fit them in to everything else I was doing musically, but now I feel that I am ready to share them with the world! The album is tentatively titled Ten Thousand Things. Oh, actually I'm lying that the songs are all old, because there will probably be one cover, and it will probably be of a fairly recent Jenny Lewis song.
Also: This may be weird but I have pulled down my 2011 release Water Makes Waves because I am re-mixing it with plans to re-release it later this year! I want to make it PERFECT! I'll keep you posted.
