Thank you so much to the San Diego Music Award academy for nominating "The Funeral" in the Best Pop Album category. I'm super surprised that a single made it into that category (I always vie for the Best Songwriter category), but beggars can't be choosers, and I'm just happy to be included in the conversation. The festivities take place on Monday, March 23 at House of Blues, but please consider joining us first at The Merrow on Tuesday, March 17 for a SDMA Nominee Showcase where my full band will be sharing the bill with two other nominated acts Kimmi Bitter and Evan Diamond.
Thanks to the Rye Room Sessions in Portland, OR for having us back last summer. Here's the second tune from that session, called "Some Man, Some God, Some War." (Featuring the awesome Jules Stewart on drums!)
Along with my raging feminism, this song was inspired by a book called The Sandcastle Girls by Chris Bohjalian, which gives a fictional account of the Armenian genocide. Sadly, the themes still resonate in our modern society. I'm looking forward to the day when we actually learn from our mistakes, but until then, at least there's music to process.
