Sessions from the Box (and Bog)

Hello Good People,

While the freezing winds are howling outside, I have a little reminder of summer to share.  Back in June, James Dineen and I kayaked to a secret spot at Smith and Bybee Wetlands to make a live music video, with the accompaniment of hundreds of great blue herons. Here’s how it turned out:

We also recorded an interview and song session for Sessions from the Box, which is available to stream here. Thanks, James! I have a few shows coming up before hibernation officially begins.  Here are the details:

Early autumn news

Hello dear readers,

I notice that a blog post is long overdue!  Here are some updates.

Our Summer tour, back in August, was a great success and a lovely little “working holiday”.  While on the road in California, recording plans began to formulate, and as soon as we were back in Portland we paid a visit to Josh Powell at The Map Room to check out the studio.  Since then, we’ve recorded a 5 song EP with Josh that will be due for release in early 2015.  This is exciting!

There will no doubt be much more news about this in the coming months.  It’s quite a process…!

In the meantime, we will be out and about gigging and enjoying autumn weather.

This evening we’re at the Coffee Cottage in Newberg, Oregon, for the first Friday art walk.  If you should chance to be in the area, stop by at 7!

Portlanders can hear us tomorrow (Friday Oct 4) at the ever-welcoming Waypost with Brenda Xu and Elise Leblanc.  Music starts at 8:30 and we’re playing last.

More gigs are coming up on the horizon – check out the shows page to see what’s going on.

Thanks for listening!

I’ll leave you with a picture of the very lovely sky today.
