Tour Dates with Full Band

(Originally posted April 29th 2017)

Hey folks,

Happy Friday! Can you say that in the music world? I mean, it doesn’t mean the same thing if you’re a musician and your “work week” begins on Thursday nights and goes until Monday morning. Well, it’s Friday for me, you fancy-pants people.

Anyway. I’m looking forward to the show coming up at Alberta Street Pub on May 9th from 7pm-9pm! If you haven’t heard, I’m playing an hour of originals and an hour of covers of contemporary UK songwriters. I’ve been driving my partner/roommate crazy by practicing a lot of British folk songs at home (and my accent), which he totally loves hearing (just kidding, although maybe he likes Billy Bragg a little bit). I LOVE it because this is my shit – I’ve been obsessed with this genre of music since I was about 17, and my nearly hostile obsession of it has only grown stronger over the years. Seriously, I could eat these songs for breakfast, lunch, dinner AND dessert every day and still not be sick of it.

Another exciting announcement is that our FULL BAND JUNE TOUR is set! We’ll be sharing the stage with a bunch of wonderful bands around Oregon. The dates are here:
