Excited for August 8th! I'll be opening for a great indie duo called The Harmaleighs at Uncommon Grounds (Lakeview) as part of my US Summer Tour promoting my record Lights Out. Thanks to the Local Tourist, Chicago Pride, and Choose Chicago for listing the event! Seating is limited - make your reservations in advance!
Thanks to friends at The Acoustic Outpost for playing My Beast and Mostly Folk for playing Not a Boy in recent episodes. Appreciate the support of my record Lights Out!
Thanks to PeakRadar for listing my upcoming concert on August 4 at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in Colorado Springs, CO! Check out the listing here!
Well, this one's pretty self-explanatory. These songs are kind of hard to share because I understand I might be alienating some listeners. But we're living in a time where I feel like I have a responsibility to speak out about things I perceive to be unacceptable in this society. Like Donald Trump, gun violence, police brutality, the separation of immigrant families, and corporate interests running our government, to name a few. It's okay if you don't agree, or if you don't want to listen to this one, or if you want to write your own song about your personal feelings on these matters. It's not okay, though, to send me threatening or insulting messages. Thanks for understanding and respecting my freedom to express myself!
another unarmed black man
lying dead in the sun
another flag-hag pigskin patriot
walks fast past the homeless veteran
what the hell do you stand for?
what the hell will you fall for?
what the fuck are you waiting for?
does a cat got your tongue?
another ar15 minutes
another thought, another prayer
another nra-hole politician
too tightly tucked into bed to care
another brown child in a cage
while an orange man turns tricks
you turn a blind eye to grabbing pussy
do you like to watch him suck dictatorships?

Hello beautiful humans! I'll be hitting the road in just a few short weeks for my Summer US Tour in promotion of my record Lights Out. Hauling ass across the country is no easy feat for a starving artist like me - if you'd like to support my tour effort, please consider becoming a Patreon supporter. It can be scary out on the road by myself, and my supporters make it possible for me to book safe lodging in towns where I don't know anyone with a spare couch. Plus, you'll get your photo on my website and be able to join my VIP facebook group where I post all my rants, raves, and silly moments.
I'm still constantly updating the calendar with shows (and still on the lookout to fill some dates, so hit me up if you have any contacts or want me to come play a house concert for you). Here's what's on deck so far...please spread the word and bring your friends out to support local indie music! Can't wait to see you!
