STUDIO TIMES!!! 

3/31/15    I have officially started to record my 4th full length studio album!  Last week I flew down to sunny California for my first couple days in the studio with my L.A. band.  We got 3 songs under our belt and now I am back in Portland and back in the studio this week. It feels really, really great to be arranging and recording songs again, and I am super excited to share them all with you.  I will be playing a lot of the new tunes out live this spring and I am hoping to have the record out sometime next fall.  Stay tuned on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (my personal fave), for more photos and updates on studio and tour adventures.

VINYL! 

How I Learned to See in the Dark VINYL!!!   Online sales have now ended but you can order directly from your LOCAL RECORD STORE! 
I will also have them with me at future tour dates.

SUNDANCE!!! 


I just got back from the Sundance Film Festival where my song Barn Song (instrumental) was featured as the closing credits music for Jenni Olson's art documentary, The Royal Road.  Such an honor to be part of all of it. http://royalroadmovie.weebly.com/
