There’s a New Album Coming

I’m happy to announce Solo Piano, my first live album. While the music I write is generally pretty lush, I’ve always performed it live on just one instrument. That decision ultimately resulted in these distinct piano versions of my songs, which have never been available on record in this form before. I knew that if I released them I wanted the recordings to be live, I liked the idea of combining geographically disparate performances, given the themes of the music. So to make this record, I recorded basically all my shows from the last year and have hand-picked my favorite performances. Here are thirteen songs, each recorded in a different place and time. One was recorded at a cafe in Arizona, another in a living room in Tennessee, another on a boat(!) in Michigan, and others from Vermont, Maine, Oregon, Nebraska, and more. Four of the songs have never been released before at all.
