We’re playing together again- this Thursday the 26th at the … Continue reading A seance in the dark…
Began to write/record songs today – and tried to liken it to painting a picture. (the last time I painted a picture was in 7th grade) So from what I remember- first I took a brush and vaguely plotted out the landscape and sky using blobs of color… a mountain here, a friendly little bush … Continue reading Van Gogh

The Nattalee Port-man song was the … Continue reading Nattalee Poortman (spelled different so NP stalkers won’t google her and come to this page!)
For some pics from the Locus remerge: David Huang’s site Jay Jao’s site These guys are mecha subarashi and “sugoku fakingu tight-o” (Japanese for “hella tight”) because they are always capturing the moment at what seems to be all the KSW and Locus events. and they do it damn well. They need to be commemorated … Continue reading Hail J.J. and D.H.
I just played the Locus “Remerge” kickoff event- it was a dream! I felt like I was really in my element and everyone was such a wonderful audience. I’d like to thank everyone who attended and for the kind words that were given to me afterwards. It really touches me and inspires me to hear … Continue reading Locus and Debut Album
I’m typing this from my iPad mini (okay, okay, it’s my iPod) so can’t import any pictures or video until I get to a laptop, but I wanted to write a little from Chicago.
