The Seattle based and incredibly talented Chris Staples will be supporting me on the tour as well.  He put out a beautiful record on Barsuk Records in 2014 called “American Soft” and it was one of my favorites of the year.  Robin Hilton from NPR agreed with me on that:
NPR – Robin Hilton’s Top 10
American Soft –

Proud to say that Barsuk Records will also reissue Makers on August 19th! This 10th Anniversary reissue marks the first time Barsuk has released the album on LP format, and the first time it’s been pressed on high-quality 180-gram vinyl with a newly designed gatefold sleeve.

Thanks and hope to see you all soon!

SOLO for US Tour

June 17, 2015


Unfortunately, due to some unforeseen circumstances, I’ve decided not to bring a backing band out on the upcoming US Tour at this time. The tour itself will go on as planned and I’m still very much looking forward to it! I will just be playing the shows SOLO instead of with a backing band.

In the interest of delivering the best show possible I just don’t want to rush things for now… I’m still planning to tour with a band at some point in the future when everything is feeling just right. As I mentioned, I’m still very much looking forward to the tour with Dave Hause & Chris Farren and I’m sorry for the change of plans! Hope to see you all at one of the many upcoming shows!!

Thx for understanding,
