I have a new album coming out soon, recorded @ The Weight Room up here in Washburn. It features new songs I’ve written over the past several years. The self titled EP features the local talent of Ryan Rousch (engineering/production), Dane Hauser (drums and backing vocals), Vanessa Van Cleve (backing vocals),Sadie Sigford (cello, backing vocals), Noble Falconer (backing vocals), and Kayla Doucette (backing vocals). It will be released digitally and I hope to also release it on Vinyl. Release date early 2017? A sneak peek audio sample below:

More copies of my 2012 release Inland Sea are available. I found a stack of unfinished jackets and inserts I must have forgotten! There are only ten of these available. I only crafted 100 originally. So this is the last ten of that batch. FUN! Handmade incorporating reclaimed materials, block printing, typing, and sewing.

3 Months Of Tucson In 6 Minutes is a sound collage from my stay in Tucson, AZ. during the winter of 2010-11. Random bits abound, slightly eerie, indeed. Most of these recordings were done with the recorder concealed in my coat.Visit 3 Months Of Tucson In 6 Minutes under the Field Recordings tab to find out more information. The band heard near the end is The Missing Parts.

I wrapped up some lo-fi recording and mixing sessions with Bayfield peninsula locals The Diving Horses a couple weeks ago. We used the trusty Tascam 488 mkII. All went well and an album was produced along with handmade packaging. These are not online and The Diving Horses aren’t playing gigs as of late…
After that I spent a weekend recording local Wis-country band Orienta Carwash. We lived in a yurt for two days and recorded on gear borrowed from a friend. All went well and we are in the process of mix down at this moment. The band plays often enough around these parts so you shouldn’t have any trouble seeing them live. The album, titled Goin’ To Town, will be released on June 21st 8 pm at Stagenorth in Washburn. There is a $5 cover.
I’ll be getting interviewed today on WTIP out of Gran Marais, that’s 90.7 FM, at 5:30 pm onn “The Roadhouse”. Tune in and then check out my presentation about biking on Lake Superior and recording ice sounds at The North House Folk School tomorrow (19th) at 7:30 pm!
