New Album Out NOW!

Podcasts & Shows can Keep You Warm 

I was so happy to do this Podcast with the good folks at Killing the Breeze. I'm really excited about this podcast. I love the warm and friendly format and their angle of letting every body talk, then pasting it all together and splicing music between. No hand holding for the listener just aggregate observation. FUN.

I'm also looking forward to a show this Wednesday night (11/19) with Tim Bulkley on drums and Kevin Barker on bass. I first heard Kevin play through a recording the Goh Nakamura was making at Gary Olson's recording studio, Marlborough Farms. (On a side note, 3 of the tracks from my album were recorded at Malborough Farms. It's a great studio and Gary is a great engineer.)

I hadn't seen Kevin since that recording but ran into him at M Shanghai and was thrilled that he was free to play this upcoming gig. Because great dumplings are where great instincts set in, I asked Kevin if he could play on this gig. Like Tim who is a visual artist, drummer, and keyboard/sampler man. Kevin is also multi-talented. He's a guitarist, a bass player recently on tour with Hamilton Leithauser of The Walkmen, and a screenwriter and director. Looking forward to what these guys bring to the music with their multi-talents!

My voice is in Providence May 16 & 17 

I submitted a 7-minute sample along with 85+ other artists to be part of an installation designed by Stephan Moore at the Open Signal Festival May 16 & 17.  My voice, rhodes and other sounds will played simultaneously with the submissions of 3 other artists and run through Stephan's hemispheric speakers.  It looks like kind of like this:


It sounds a lot different than just my sample but here's what I submitted.

My submission was in response to Open Signal's mission statement and some of the issues they are currently exploring: OPENSIGNAL was founded by a group of students in Brown’s MEME [Multimedia + Electronic Music Experiments] Department who came together over the need for greater visibility of women and people of color engaged with experimental/electronic music practice at Brown. While there is great diversity at the level of the student body, this is not reflected in the current faculty or in past guest artist invitations.

Album Release Show May 5 

Big thanks to everyone who came out to Monday's album release show at Friends and Lovers. It was a great night of music and friends.

I'm very excited to have Lissi Erwin of Splendid Corp designing the cover for the next album. The album will be out in early 2014... still quite a few things to get in place in addition to artwork (some pics of the band, some reviews, and all that good stuff).
