Had a wonderful time playing a 3 song set in the Faces on the Radio stairwell. Yousef’s landlord wasn’t overly pleased, but we think it turned out great :) Check out the playlist above and be sure to watch through the end to catch Barra’s lip-synching.
Very happy to share this video of “God Only Knows” - one of my all time favorites (beach boys or otherwise!) This was filmed and recorded at my friends Justin and Liese’s house in Seattle. In order for the shots to sync up with all the brilliant little Brian Wilson parts it had to be performed in one continuous take (which took a while!!) It was a great learning experience. It was also a wonderful way to end my recording sessions in the cozy little green house on Dearborne St. I spent some very good times holed up in the Freunds’ bedroom turned studio recording both of my EP’s and I learned a ton about engineering and mixing from Justin. Due to a very crappy disorder called Meniere’s disease (which has progressively limited his hearing) Justin sold off most of his gear after this session- so this cover was one of the last things to be recorded there. It was a fitting swan song (as it’s one of Justin’s favorites as well). Hope you enjoy :)
Hi guys! Very happy to finally be sharing this new music with you :) You can download it for free here. It’s also available on itunes. I do have a few physical copies as well (a cd sleeve with the album artwork and liner notes). If you’d like one of those you can come to a show or send me an email (email@example.com.) Thanks a ton for your interest in my music- I hope you enjoy!
The Portland Mercury is premiering my new marvelous marker movie for “Young Love.” A huge thanks to Ned Lannamann for a well written, funny, and positive write-up. You can read the article and watch the video here.
