NPR’s Morning Edition recently put out a call for musicians to re-imagine their theme music, and I finally had a chance to throw something together. Kate Rears Burgman came through with the cello and I played/recorded the rest of the instruments in my home studio.
I’m a fan of the show myself, so it was fun to get to take a crack at a song I hear in the background most days. Hope you dig it. You can listen on Soundcloud here.

Charlottesville! We are very happy to be coming back to play a FREE acoustic show
with our buddy, Michael Coleman. We were fortunate to get to share the stage with him a couple years ago, and we had a blast. Looking forward to another great night at The Garage

There’s a new WWP album coming out in March! It took a minute to write and record and mix. But that’s all done now and soon it will be an actual thing that you can have and listen to & accessorize.
I’m really proud of the new tracks and hope/think you’ll like ‘em too. And we’ve gotten the crew back together to learn the songs and hang out and drink beer and enjoy each others’ company. Look for a DC release show announcement soon.
Also, a bit ago I got out of town and went down to Nashville to make a video with my good, good friend, Daniel Shepherd and his esteemed colleague, Joey Ciccoline. Well, I guess technically they made the video. I mostly just played some instruments and sang a song while they captured all of the good times and memories in some small digital boxes with lenses attached.
Keep an ear to the ground for updates and I’ll make sure to keep you posted on all of the newness and freshness to come.

Some people have asked me what I’ve been listening to lately, so I made a Spotify mix with a few songs from 2014 that I dug/dig/dog.
I really hope it was a solid year for you. It had its moments for me, but all things considered, I won’t be sad to see it go. I have higher hopes for 2015. For both of us. You and me. For one, I’ve been recording….a lot. Some songs I’m really excited about. I’ll keep you posted…
Beyond that, there are just things to look forward to. People are paying attention to what’s happening in the world and demanding more justice and more freedom. Whatever your politics, that’s exciting. This past year, some friends of mine were able to get married to each other. And they wouldn’t have been able to, just a couple years ago. Fewer people will be locked up for seeking pain relief from a plant that nobody has ever overdosed on. And it seems we pretty much all agree that justice system reforms are needed….so we might actually get them soon. That is amazing. Oh, and it’s possible that because people got involved in democracy, we might get to keep having an open internet.
See? Cool shit will continue to happen this year. Mark my words….But also, lame shit. There will be both cool shit and lame shit. For all of us. So, I vote that we all try to stay positive and be kind to each other, if at all possible. Cool? Cool.
ps – Oh, and congrats to Pat and his wife, Ali! They had a son a few days ago. See? Even more cool shit.
pps – I’m on instagram more than anything else these days. So come find me if you’re into that kind of thing. Which you are, but you also aren’t.
