“My first memories are of falling asleep to the sound of my father’s guitar in the kitchen. I taught myself to play the instrument through song writing when I was 19, and still come back to those familiar finger picked styles when I write. I come from a little pine-tree filled gold mining town called Nevada City, California, but Portland, Oregon has been home for twelve years. Early recordings were made in 2003, while going to college in San Francisco, and I have been releasing albums every few years since.
I’ve toured all over the UK and Europe, and have driven circles around the vast United States enough times to know better. I write about life, about love, about loss, I’ve dreamt songs, and I’ve been painfully nostalgic in verse. I’ve tried many sounds: stripped down acoustic to full band and back to basics again. I’ve learned a lot about my voice over the years, and it’s grown and changed with me, for which, I am grateful.
My fifth solo record, Cusp, was recorded while pregnant with my second daughter, and will be released in early 2018, when I can manage to tour again. I look forward to sharing it with you.”
All ages. U14s accompanied
