I feel fortunate that so many of my days are spent making music that I believe in with people that believe in. I just wrapped up a new record with the great Tift Merritt who is at the top of her musical game. We recorded most of it in Raleigh/Durham, North Carolina with her ace band. Mr. Jim James guested as did Eyvind Kang, Greg Leisz and Steve Moore. It’s to be released in early June and is called “See You on the Moon”. The new Laura Veirs record “July Flame” comes out on January 12. It’s a lovely record. Please consider checking it out. There are a couple of free songs available on her website. Here are some other things that have happened since I last updated. I mixed Langhorne Slim‘s new record “Be Set Free”. Thao‘s new record “Know Better, Learn Faster” came out recently. We had a nice guest visit from Andrew Bird on that one. I mixed an EP and some LP tracks for Portland’s own Loch Lomond and a full length from Viva Voce offshoot Blue Giant. Speaking of Portland, I recorded an iTunes exclusive EP with Blind Pilot and mixed some songs for the new Quasi album, the rest of which was mixed by Dave Fridmann and Steve Fisk.

I had a nice chat with NPR’s Bob Boilen which is archived here.

I had a nice Chat with Tift Merritt for her radio show “The Spark” in Marfa, Texas which is archived right here.

Hooray for nice chats!

Paste Magazine surprised me with this flattering accolade

Lots on the horizon. See you next time!
