California in July


California! I’ve got a great slate of shows lined up around the Bay Area in July, including the Gilroy Garlic Festival and a big show in San Francisco with some of my talented west coast friends at Hotel Utah. I can’t wait to return over the Golden Gate Bridge – I took this picture on my last trip out west, when every day was typically this sunny.
TUES, July 29: San Francisco – Hotel Utah (7pm)


2,000 ThankYou’s


2,000 ThankYou’s for your 2,000 Likes.

(and thanks for all the shares & words-of-mouth that got me there)

Grateful that we’re connected, excited to share my music with you.
And for the record, I like you too.



Summer 2014: Vampire Discrimination


Summer means garlic… because garlic means Garlic Festival (sorry, vampires).

My return to the Gilroy Garlic Festival in July is just one of many performances around the country this summer, which will include cool spots like Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, fancy spots like the American Folk Art Museum, huge spots like the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, California spots like San Francisco’s Hotel Utah, and a House Concert Tour down to North Carolina!

See the full summer tour date schedule:

[Full disclosure, Vampire Discrimination is also one of my #FantastyBandNames.]

November - CA
also booking Spring 2015

Special shout to Trudy & Ed Chara of Music On The Mountain in Brackney, PA for hosting me this month (see picture). If you are interested in hosting your own house concert, or if you want to learn more, email:

Brain Tumor Awareness Month


May is Brain Tumor Awareness Month!

Today nearly 700,000 people in the United States are living with a primary brain tumor, and more than 69,000 others will be diagnosed this year. Brain tumors are often deadly, impact quality of life, and change everything for patients and their loved ones.

This is a cause that means a lot to me. Show your support by helping spread the word, donating to fund research, and tweet #BTAM or share the link & photo here. And take a moment to appreciate your support system, your family & friends, and all those you love and who love you back.
