Hey, Friend,

Stay cool…

…in the most literal sense of the word possible. At least here in Ohio, temperatures have been unseasonably warm, which means I’ve been spending a good bit of time in the basement of my un-air-conditioned house. While somewhat dungeoun-esque, it’s generally a good 10 degrees cooler than the floors above. It also happens to contain my recording studio, which means I’ve been spending quite a bit of time down there working on some super-secret projects… more on that soon!

Fortunately, the temperatures look to be dropping over the next few days. This is especially timely, as I’ve embarked on a journey with my friends Cassie Bishop (Shy Moon) and Mikey Silas (Somewhat Silas) of organizing monthly house concerts at my big, dumb Victorian house in Cleveland, affectionately referred to as McFarland Manor! The first show will be this Friday, June 1, and features a stacked lineup of talent from North East Ohio. If you’d like to attend, we’d love to have you – head over to the McFarland Manor Facebook Page, give it a “Like”, and send us a message for the address!

If you’re looking for some great new music to listen to, I’ve made no secret about the fact that my main conduit to learning about awesome new artists is my good friend Kevin Conaway (a fantastic singer-songwriter), who somehow always has a new, amazing band to recommend. He’s recently started to curate a Spotify playlist, called Caught in the Current. I highly recommend taking a listen to it and subscribing – he’s updating it regularly with new songs (which you’ll find at the top of the playlist) and rolling off older ones from the bottom, so, you’ll want to check in on it regularly to catch the latest tracks.

I’m also very excited to announce that if you’re into all things geeky, you’ll be able to catch me performing at Wizard World Columbus all three days of the Comic Con – the times of my performances will be going up in the next few days (the ones you’ll see lower down are when the con starts on each day), but there’s enough to keep you busy at Wizard World that you might as well set aside a whole day, and swing by the stage to see me play at whatever time that ends up happening!

I’ve been continuing to release songs from my Almost Like Live video EP. The idea behind doing this was to showcase what my live show looks like for those who haven’t had a chance to attend, and also to give a first listen to several of the songs that will be on my upcoming full-length House of Ghosts. So here’s the second Almost Like Live video, “The Last Sunset”:

I’ve got a nice batch of concerts this month, and it would be wonderful to see some friendly faces at those shows!

As always, there’s a chance a few more dates may pop up on my calendar – you can always find all the upcoming shows on my Tour Dates page.

Once again, thank you for taking this journey with me!
