For many years, I've been accruing songs that couldn't necessarily move a bar full of people to dance but I always thought were "pretty good." By some coincidence or not, these quiet and under-performed songs were written largely in and about the upper Midwest...even though I spent about 50% of my nights in Massachusetts during the time they came into my life. I'm finally recording this set, and am so far surprised by how cohesive the thing seems to be. The photo below was taken a few blocks from the house I grew up in, and it seems like a fitting book cover for the new music.
I'll be playing some of these new songs on the internet this week, though the virtual concert hall Concert Window. I hope you can tune in!
