Songs For Years Collective, Song #4 - I'm Home

I've been really good lately at writing the first 50% of a song and then...stopping. Finally getting back on track with this Songs For Years Collective project. This one wrote itself last night in about an hour. Super low-fi demo on my old iPad. Enjoy.

Last Friday at Riving Loom

Last Friday night at Riving Loom. Me, David Houston, Allyson and Kevin Seconds.

David shared stories about his amazing career — recording Latoya Jackson, The Temptations being super pro in the studio — and made his share of wisecracks. Kevin and I took turns playing guitar solos on each others songs. We all sang on each others songs. And laughed a LOT, both at the show and at the post-show-food hi-jinx.

Solo show at Riving Loom this Friday

Hi all —

I’m playing a solo show with Kevin Seconds and his always rad wife Allyson this Friday Sept 20. Don’t be fooled by the “Hank and Lulu” moniker — it’s Kev and Allyson, I promise. :)

Honeypower at Chalk It Up Festival

Pictured: Honeypower yesterday at the Chalk It Up Festival. Both Warren and I violating the “no shorts on stage” rule of rock. There’s an exception to that if it’s over 95 degrees, right?

While loading my car for the show, I sliced my left hand open pretty good…about an hour before we were supposed to play — pretty sure THAT qualifies me for an exception to the “no shorts” rule, yes?

Songs For Years Collective, Song #3 - Allergies

Song #3 of the Songs For Years Collective. This was actually the first one I started working on, but it stalled about 50% written for a while. I finally circled back this week and added the bridge. Enjoy.

Songs For Years Collective, Song #2 - I Should've

Super duper low-fi demo of song #2 for the Songs For Years Collective project. Propped up the iPad and played. Guitar and vocals by me, jingly noise in the background by Jasper the dog.

June 7 Show at Fox and Goose

In the immortal words of Kurtis Blow, “hey ya’ll, it’s summertime and things are going my way”…

Summertime = more fun, more parties, and more shows! This Friday night I’m playing a solo show at Fox and Goose with the always rad Kevin and Allyson Seconds. Joining us will also be the also-always-rad Bobby Jordan of Slattern V and Mr T Experience fame.

Tonight at The Torch Club with Dunder Mifflin

Josh Lacey, me, Joe Kojima, Erik Hanson. Tonight at Torch Club. Best show I've ever had at this venue. And not just because we made enough money to pay for tacos after. Josh played lead guitar on all our songs, many of which he'd never heard before. Everyone sounded amazing. Joe is underrated as a singer, and I say that having followed his bands for many years now.

Happy birthday Subject to Flooding, and last minute show this weekend

In the immortal words of Kip Winger, “She’s only seventeen”…

17 years ago today my album “Subject to Flooding” album came out. We played a CD release show at The True Love Coffeehouse, still one of my favorite places to play ever. I technically worked that day before the show (at a now-long-gone dotcom) but I should have called in sick, as they mostly paid me to sit there anxiously tapping my fingers on the desk until quitting time.

Songs For Years Collective, Song #1

Kevin Seconds asked me to join this project called Songs For Years Song Collective where every member writes, records, and releases a new song for every year they've been alive. So by the end of 2019 I'm on the hook for, well, a lot of songs. I started the year off with a handful of ideas that were coming together. Then I got really sick, couldn't stop coughing for a few weeks and recorded nothing. Then had oral surgery, causing further delays. Finally over the hurdles. This isn't the first song I started, but it's the first song to get finished. Enjoy.
