Exciting news… new album in the works!

Hi all! It’s been a while since I last posted. I wrote about it in my most recent newsletter, so check that out if you want some backstory. But I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be recording my next full length studio album in just over a week!

If you’re not familiar with the music and talent of Shannon Curtis, I highly recommend her! (Here’s the lyric video for her new song “Glorious”.) I met Shannon and her partner Jamie Hill at a local house concert a couple of years back, and I reached out to Jamie this year about producing and recording my new album, and he agreed! I last recorded in 2016 (both the solo album Fact or Fiction, and the album Possibility with Luminous Heart), and have been writing since then. There’s been a great deal of inspiration since 2016, both from the social and political events in our country, and also from more personal observations and struggles. Some songs have been played at many shows, and others are newer, including a couple that I wrote this year and that I haven’t played for anyone except my family and students!

So, I’m very much looking forward to getting back into the studio. I will most likely do a smallish Kickstarter campaign in the summer to help with album costs, but in the meantime, stay posted on my socials for updates, photos and snippets of songs! Also, I’m only playing a handful of shows this year, so check out my calendar for updates. And thanks for your continued support – it means so much to me!
