Here’s something new Shannon and I just put out. New full-length album coming June 17th, followed by an 80-show North American tour! If you want to come to a show, check the schedule and send me a message and we’ll get you an invite.

I finally get to share this with you guys! SO EXCITING.

This is the first song from a record that I’ve been working on for a long time, and which is near and dear to my heart. Christen and I started this album in October 2012! We’re just finishing up the mastering process right now. We’ve spent easily 1000+ hours on this record. We’ve produced it twice, mixed it twice, and mastered it twice.

As you might hope for a project approached with that level of persistence and detail, this whole record is brilliant. Of course I would say that, but seriously, it’s a great album. I can’t wait to share it with you in its entirety. But for now, enjoy this first song. You will be for sure transported to a magical place.

I mixed this record and did a little additional production. To have it debut here is a huge thrill for a massive NPR nerd like me.

This is very cool.

Our new friend Jenn Marshall runs a very cool organization called This Is My Brave. It addresses mental wellness in a storytelling setting. Shannon did a playing-along-live version of the “I Know I Know” video. It was very moving. And I left the house for the first time in a while! All in all a rousing success.

This is surreal, in the best possible way. Our new friend Martin Atkins – legend, childhood hero – has a new slide in his keynote presentation IN WHICH HE INSTRUCTS PEOPLE TO BUY OUR BOOK. If only I’d been able to see this in the future when I was 18 years old. So COOL.

We’re FINALLY home from our summer and fall travels! Which means that I get to produce records again. How excellent. First up: a southern soul band from Dallas called The Gibbonses.

They’re a husband-wife duo … they have killer songs and the singer has a huge voice. We’re a couple days in and I can already tell this record is going to be super good. Very happy to be back doing what I love.

So proud.

This week I mixed the upcoming new EP for the unbelievably excellent Chris Bathgate. If you don’t know him – start catching up. Salt Year is a fantastic record, and you can stream it on Spotify.

This new record is breathtaking. It’s slated to come out in January via my friends at Quite Scientific. Can’t wait to share it with you.
