Welcome to It's only a one-page 'site' at the moment, but soon I'll be adding more pages and more features. In the meantime I'll be keeping the content here fresh, so please check back frequently for updates on concerts, recordings, tours, and whatever else is going on in my career.


  • I had a great time playing a couple of sets for the Tommorrow Never Knows festival, which happened in Chicago recently. I played with Bonzie at Lincoln Hall on 1/15, and with Ryley Walker at Schubas on 1/18.
  • It's a quiet time of year, but I'm looking forward to some of the things I have coming up - playing on a couple of records, making my first trip to SXSW, and re-convening the expanded version of Kyle Bruckmann's Wrack to give midwest performances of his Pynchon-inspired composition (Wrack...Awaits Silent Tristero's Empire, or W.A.S.T.E.) which we premiered last year in San Francisco. All coming in the first quarter of 2014!
