In October 2017, I served as artist-in-residence for the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness in Northern Michigan. My new EP I Can Almost See was inspired by my time in that beautiful place. You can listen to the whole thing here.
It's here! What a journey this album has been. Thank you to my IndieGoGo backers who made it all possible. Thank you to Ben, Tony, Jenn, and Malia for making the album better. Thanks to the rest of you for listening to me ramble on about Norway for the past two years. After living this adventure for three months and then mulling it for many more, I'm really happy with how this thing turned out. I think it is a good record of what happened. Give Songs From The North Country a listen and let me know what you think.
If you’ve ever lived on a busy street, in the winter, you may have experienced what this song is about. Rush hour headlights slicing through the blinds, scanning the room and disappearing suddenly. Feels like a search party or a lighthouse just showed up on your doorstep. Thank you to Ben Cosgrove for providing the beautiful accordion accompaniment here.
Here's a little preview of Songs From The North Country. I'm really happy with how the album is coming together. Tony Petersen played electric guitar(s) on "Black Friday" and Jenn Fagre played violin/viola on "Letters From America."
I'll be taking these songs around the midwest and northeast in the coming months, playing some of my favorite cozy venues and a string of house concerts. Hope to see you!
