"I'm Sorry, I Love You" - New Single Coming May 8, 2020 

Hey Friends,

I hope you are all well in isolation, staying healthy and positive.

Whidbey Island - New Music Coming Soon 

Hey Friends,

It was beautiful yesterday visiting Whidbey Island for the first time. My family and I had a cabin in the San Juan islands, so poor old Whidbey Island was always passed by when I was a child. Such a beautiful place with some good Washington State history. Above is a picture from the drive to Deception Pass.

Regarding music updates, I'm still in the studio and recording more songs and things are going well. 

Hope you're well. 





Summer of 2016 I played this slightly altered version of the Death Cab For Cutie song "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" for Jay and Katy's first dance at their wedding. She asked me to record it for him as a 30th birthday present. I've edited out my personal comments (minus a hair swipe at the beginning) and wanted to share the song with you. I hope you enjoy it. 



Brand New Video for Highway 


Short story: This video represents the best times of my life over the past two and a half years. Filmed and edited by my good friend and camera man Aaron Sampson

They held my visa which allowed me to work AND play music in the UK. I think it was early June 2016 that they told me that my…

Big shout out to TOPMAN for hooking me up with some new clothes and for being so kind to me. Also a big thank you to the Museum of London for having me. Here are some photos from the weekend:
