Are you coming to the amazing all-volunteer Beehive Design Collective's BLACKFLY BALL in downtown Machias, Maine this year? I appeared for 2 years in a row as a solo act, and then missed 2 years in a row due to a car crash and then being (happily) stuck in the studio... But myself and the fantastic AURORATONES will be buzzing back over to the misty waterfall this year, presenting a brand-new musicomix live-show! It's gonna be crazy. Come frolic on the enchanted coast & stuff yourself silly on fresh blueberries... Tons of wonderful music! Buckets of honey-ful art! Inclusiveness & collaboration across all spectrums of age, gender, race, and taste! Free & people-powered! Mark your calendars! AUGUST 16th! Here's the INVITE!

Just dug-up from the vaults! Several years ago, I did a tour w/ the band Charlemagne as a hired-gun auxiliary member on guitar/keys/backing vocals/navigation/etc... I also spontaneously endeavored to document our adventures in the form of comics: one panel per day. The entire crew was Carl (aka Charlemagne), myself, and a small stuffed toy bunny named "Algene", who comes to life in the comics. I didn't get payed much on that tour, but I did have fun...

I'm hard at work on my new album, which is an epic collection of newspaper personals advertisements, which I've turned into songs! A different singer handles lead vocal duties on each tune. There will be two dozen tunes on the final record, and it's all being captured in full-analog-glory on my trusty friend, the Tascam 388. Here are a few little glimpses into the process & the material-in-progress. Cheers!

Just-finished! Commemorative poster for the 2013 New Orleans Loving Festival (June 6-12). Git you out there! They're doing some fantastic events on the subjects of race, gender, community, & cooperation. The poster is a pin-up on the reverse side of a folded-up schedule, completely hand-drawn & comic-fied. I also did their logo a few years back, now featured on t-shirts, totes, and more...

I'm finally back home in the green mountains, in my beloved Burlington, endeavoring to draw the entire town, and all of it's inhabitants. Its for a new little book/song. This could take a while. Wish me luck & lack of tendonitis... These are just a few recent highlights. Lots more are in-the-works & yet to be drawn...!
