Thank you / new 7” out now
Thank you so much to everyone who was a part of this past tour in any way. There really are no words for what happened over the past five months. How do you explain the greatest time of your life when asked as a mere formality?
How does a sentence capture the feeling of playing a show nearly every night in such varied circumstances, or making best friends with people you may never meet again, or the joy of discovering deep humor in everything, or the infinite nuances that make each day so different and so similar to those before it?
I’m grateful that this tour happened exactly as it did, that I could travel with my great friends Jack, Spencer, Bryce, Alex, Luke and Jenny, that the maze of logistics and planning more or less worked out as intended, that so many folks helped out with opportunities to perform, transportation, food, equipment and places to sleep. It’s hard to believe that by abstracting things I can’t word into music, people out there understand it in some way and want to help. Mostly, I’m grateful that I’m able to do this at all, to see America from a perspective that few know exists, and to be aware that this isn’t some grand undertaking I did on my own. It’s not just my tour when it’s something that is only possible with help from hundreds, maybe thousands of people who each contribute in their own way with their presence. Thank you to all of you, even the folks that weren’t physically present. I’ll see you again.
My newest release is a song titled “Probably Tomorrow” on a 4-way split 7” with Reighnbeau, Torn Humorist and Light Light that can now be ordered from Family Time Records
. This might be the most upbeat and optimistic piece I’ve released and is more appropriate for me now than ever. The three other tracks on this record are truly amazing, and are my favorite songs by longtime friends that are continually pushing what they’re doing with each release.
