I’m excited to announce my new album ‘The Blackberry Train’ which is released worldwide May 6th on Maybenot via Kobalt Label Services. 
You can pre-order the download or a limited edition signed CD here.

The opening track on the album, “Too Hard”, is available as an instant download on iTunes with the album pre-order, and to stream on Spotify.

I wrote “Too Hard” in L.A, and tried to infuse it with a country feel to really bring out that desperation, and the idea of trying too hard. Dhani Harrison came into the studio and we both collaborated on the guitar solo in the song.

With this my second album, I feel that I’ve been both diverse and cohesive. Opening with the invigorating “Too Hard” and closing with the stately and aptly named folk song, “Peace and Stillness.” Between these bookends, highlights include the rough-edged and urgently melodic “Unicorn,” the anthemic “Peyote Coyote,” and the soulful ballad “Prayer.” One very personal song is the winsome and reflective “Waterfall”, which was inspired by memories of my mother.

It’s all been an evolution. This set of songs definitely has a harder edge, but it’s a continuation of my last album. The main thing for me is to not conform or compromise.

To accurately capture the music in my head, I sought out the distinct audio stylings of Steve Albini. The results make for an edgy and eclectic album with fastidiously crafted songs documented in the studio with glorious purity.

I like the music to have elements of the avant-garde, psychedelic, and be just a little against the grain. But in the end, it's about having as much emotion as possible for me, musically and lyrically. It’s all about the music being cathartic, heartfelt and true.

I hope you enjoy my new music & thank you for your continued support!
