Since 2020 was a year like no other, 2021 cannot help but also be completely unique. Looking back, the first two months of 2020 were probably the busiest January and February I’ve ever had in my career – the usual weekly gigs topped of with a great variety of one-offs Read More

Back to Work (just a little bit)

Wow. The last 3 months have been the longest period in many years where I haven’t played any gigs. (Although, like many other musicians, I have been livestreaming on fb).   I wasn’t bored, as I spent a lot of time catching up on long-deferred projects around the house, exploring Read More

Music From Home

The clubs are closed, the breweries and restaurants trying to get by on take-out, festivals are cancelling, which leaves musicians with no stages to play on, no crowds to perform in front of,  no easy way to gather with our fellow players and make a few songs together.  But that Read More

It’s July!

And July means Arts Fest which means a lot of intense fun because I have to practice and rehearse and practice and rehearse for all the shows I’m playing that week – and then I get to play the shows! You can look at my schedule (right over there >>>) Read More

A Rousing Start to 2019
