The holiday season is upon us, and I’m reminded once again of how different my life is now. I’ve spent a lot of holidays alone — call it self-imposed exile if you want, it fits well enough — and I can tell you it’s one of the most hollow feelings in the world. My sister’s…

A million things to say, a million ways to start, but only one post to create. A lot of people make this look very easy. From June 27 – August 10th, I ran a campaign on the NYC-based crowdfunding site Rockethub, in order to cover the recording costs for “Two People Made This Mess.” In…

Odds are, if you’re here this week, it’s because you read about me in the New Republic. Welcome! Stop popping your gum. Seriously. In any case, here’s a blog post about the writing of Misophone, the demo of which you can download now, and which I hope to record as part of my next album…
