My new single is live and breathing, here. You can download it for free until December 15th. So many thanks to everyone who came to my release show: it meant the world to play for you.

Below the Weather & the Waves is a dialogue between myself and the ocean, her reminding me of a teaching from my favorite Zen-ish teacher: "During difficulty, see the place that has no difficulty."

So many thanks to my collaborators (Rob Reich, Schuyler Karr, Jay Pellicci, Piper Payne) and friends who supported me in the process (Moorea Dickason, Jean Rohe, Austin Willacy & Briget Boyle).
