Short Hair, Don’t Care

After about three months of building up the courage to do it, I chopped off my long hair. Well, technically I didn’t do it- my good friend Katie Reinhardt did. And I have to admit… I love it! I know it sounds silly, but I kind of feel like a new person. Like so many dramatic changes in one’s life,… Read more →

Revisiting the Past, Looking Forward

It’s funny how life looks in retrospect. You never really know what’s happening in the moment and the more you try to control it, the less fun it becomes and in a lot of ways, that was my reality. This past year has been a weird and wild time for me, musically. I’m sure you’ve noticed that I haven’t been… Read more →

A Song A Week

I’ve been calling myself a singer/songwriter for a while now. And as ambiguous and contentious as that label is for many of artists in the music community, it does make one thing undeniably clear- I consider myself to be a person that writes songs and sings. The only problem is that I have a hard time calling myself a songwriter… Read more →

Songs by Local Artists I Want to Cover

I played a show at the legendary Java Joe’s in Ocean Beach the other night and was overwhelmed by the amazing talent of the San Diego music scene. There are so many fantastic singer/songwriters here and it’s a shame that more people aren’t exposed to their music. I think Jeffrey Joe said it best when he said, “On a night… Read more →

Affirmations

I always felt like those ruminations and affirmations of self that people post on Facebook and Twitter in silly fonts and with inspirational backgrounds were just that- cheesy. But lately, I’ve taken to many of them simply because I found myself in a place that was darker and more cynical than I wanted and because I needed frequent reminders that… Read more →

Welcome Back (Almost)

What a strange ride the last six months have been. I didn’t think I’d come away from everything that has happened with anything other than a few scars and some new hardware in my hips, but I have to admit that I have been learning and experiencing new things non-stop since late-November. I’ve been back in San Diego for about… Read more →

That Was My Last CD

I like to think I’m keeping up with the technology trends when it comes to music. I started doing the “Pay What You Want” thing almost a year and a half ago. I began using the Square Reader to accept credit cards at shows shortly after. And now I’m going to stop selling CD’s. That’s right. “Live at Lestat’s” will… Read more →

New Album Starts Now

With everything that happened last year (new band, the SDMA nomination, touring, new songs, new opportunities, etc.) I finally feel like the time is ripe for a full length band album! My last two efforts (download them here) were good records but really were an experiment with songwriting for me. I enjoy the intimacy of both of those sounds but… Read more →

Next Steps

June was probably the craziest month of being a musician that I’ve ever had. Aside from going on a ten-day tour of the West Coast, I also had non-stop gigs at the San Diego Fair as a solo act and as the electric guitar player in the John Hull Band who competed in the Musicpalooza contest. A grand total of… Read more →
