What Listening To Your Life Entails

Days of traveling on trains, zigzagging to and fro throughout the falling and changing leaves, the scenery of graffiti and castles, wine vineyards and bicycle racks provide me with one very consistent problem: What am I going to listen to today? I waited to listen to Radiohead’s new album so that I could absorb it....

Dear Apocalypse, New Video, Interviews… There’s a LOT Happening

The days have begun to blur each into the next.  Having experienced a new kind of exhaustion between the production and getting rather sick last week, I find myself sleeping 12 hours at a time.  But the reward of performing a collaboration with my friends and giving a gift of my community in Nashville is...

Announcing: DEAR APOCALYPSE – A Live Meditation On Living Through and Surviving PTSD

During the first 6 years that I lived in ‪#‎Nashville‬ my dad passed away suddenly, was in a flood (and bailed 3,500 gallons of water in my home), was in a tornado (the scariest thing I’ve ever lived through was listening to 100 year old trees cracking at the base around my home as I...
Surrendering A Life in Hope

Surrendering A Life in Hope

The year since I moved back to Nashville has been strange, joyful, heart wrenching, life changing, and deeply fulfilling.  I arrived in Nashville to reboot my life after a tour in Europe.  I had just played a series of shows that changed the way I viewed myself as an artist.  I also brought with me a...

It’s Been A Great Week! Let’s Celebrate, Shall We?

This is going to be a quick one, I think, as I have several things going on this week.  But it’s been a really surprising and wonderful week for me professionally.  Most of it I won’t go in to yet, but  Kat Jones & The Prophets played their final show for two months as we...

Five Years Later: Remembering The Nashville Flood

Five years ago today I woke up to the sound of my someone frantically banging on the front door of my basement apartment. Having only slept 5 hours I groggily put my feet town into at least 9 inches of water and suddenly realized that I would be dealing with water which had violently entered...

European Tour Journal: Germany – Cologne (Koln)

September 15, 2014 (Riding another train from Berlin to the Isle of Fehmarn with Orion Walsh.) Our two shows in Koln were unbelievable. First, we played a loft show with a duo called Jenna and Jesse.

September 8, 2014 After 10 hours of flying and switching train after train, I arrived in Frankfurt and met up with my tour mate for this leg, Orion Walsh.  We played a venue called Gluck Ist Jeszt in their patio and I listened to my voice ring through the streets:  ricocheting off of the tall...

  Phew.  For A Minute There I Lost Myself.   I am not good at editing text.  Forgive me 🙂 The last 5 weeks in Nashville have been INTENSE.  It’s been a non-stop volley of culture-shock, getting to know the city with all of it’s changes, getting to know my self, re-aquainting myself with my...
Nashville.  The Return Home.

Nashville. The Return Home.

My decision to move back to Nashville came as a surprise to many of you and was not at all a surprise to those who knew me best.  It is true:  when I left the city for Portland three years ago, I was fleeing for my life in many ways:  both physical and artistic.  At...
