Remember when, to be a fashionable altruist, all you had to do was sing about how you weren’t going to play “Sun City”? Now we hashtag and trend our modern shame and guilt about our fellow citizens for being out-of-step, out-of-touch and out-of-bounds. The truth, as far as I can tell, is that the only constant is change, and these are truly transitional times. So we give and take, are alternately heartened or dismayed, and The Faithful try to desperately hold on to some version of the never-changing pre-Apple Eden they were indoctrinated into, while the faithful just hope that Love wins out once in a while.
I will be playing a one-hour acoustic set of my original songs. Come relax, enjoy and say “Hi”!

I am excited to be releasing, finally, the entire EP, LONG BEFORE. I can’t quite say when I started it; within the last few years, I guess. It’s been 2 years since my last release, and I haven’t been too prolific these last 5 years compared to earlier in my life. I’ve had a lot of changes in my life these past few years, some good, some bad, but it certainly feels like I’m entering a new phase in my life, hopefully a much better one. I think it will be. So yeah, cleaning up some old songs on my computer, which drives me nuts when they accumulate. But still, I think the collection turned out well. There will be more EPs to follow throughout 2013, I hope.
Well, you can download LONG BEFORE for FREE at my BandCamp page, but feel free to donate to the cause if you can.
