Songwriter Stage at the LSM Arsenal
She grew up on a cattle farm in Virginia and cut my teeth playing gigs as a teenager in the Charlottesville music scene of the late 90’s. She loved Suzanne Vega, The Replacements, Waylon Jennings, and early R.E.M.
One day she packed my truck and moved myself to New Orleans, where she met producer Tim Sommer (Duncan Sheik) with whom she made two records, had endless conversations about music, and formed the Eno-homage, drone-punk ensemble Hi-fi Sky.
She play underground rock, a type of country/folk that I call ‘dream-a-billy’ for lack of a better word. She like to turn out slow, simple dance songs for long lonely nights to come.
Her new record, ‘I Love You So Much Always,’ is dedicated to nine people who died in the two & a half years prior to making it. They were amazing & joyous & wondrous teachers & friends. She didn’t set out to make a record for or about them; my songs, as usual, are wiser than she is.
When She is not singing & writing songs I’m playing with my black dog Jackson, gardening, meditating, on the computer planning tours, on the computer answering email, on the computer looking at dumb stuff, and (occasionally) working on the novel She has been trying to finish for years
