Man! I need to keep up with updating this page! For those that didn’t know, I spent the last 10 days on tour with my good friend Todd Lerew! We played all over the southwest and it was really fantastic! So many great experiences! If you ever need to find info on shows that aren’t posted here, check out the facebook page here. On this tour, I performed several deconstructed pop songs that utilize extended banjo technique. The first wave of this material is available via a new CD-R on Yawn Tapes. You can stream the record in full below. Stay tuned for info about upcoming shows in Phoenix and LA!
This is a belated post about my first collaboration with Derek Rogers titled poem is wonderful. It’s a collection of shiny/droney pieces that we decided to release for free via bandcamp. We recently completed a very different collaborative record that will hopefully be out somewhere soon. Get poem is wonderful here:
I’m very excited to be playing at Alter Space in San Francisco on Saturday with my like minded friend Andrew Weathers and the very rad Morse Cosmos! I’ll be doing a set of drone-y folk songs using guitar, banjo, and a lot of pedals. Here’s some more info:
