Thrilled to receive my physical copy of the latest issue of Terrascopædia 20 in the mail today and I must say it’s exquisite! Very thankful to head proprietor, Phil McMullen, for reaching out to me, and to be included amongst such fine company. Only 150 copies were produced. Each copy is entirely hand made from cover to cover, typeset one letter at a time and printed in full color on a fully restored 1926 vintage press (AKA labor of love – learn more about the process here). Not surprisingly, it tends to sell out quick so I’ve included some snaps from the interview where I discuss past/present/future releases, including some new and exciting music on the horizon 😅💫✨
Truly honored to be invited to play among the beautiful ceramic worlds of friend/artist, James Sterling Pitt, as we celebrate the closing of his expansive exhibition, Ways, at Ratio 3 in San Francisco, California. It is my first show of the year and will be joined by longtime sonic traveler, Rich Douthit on percussion. It would mean the world to share this moment with you!
Very excited to partner with Debacle records for a vinyl edition of “Other States”, originally released on cassette via Geographic Norths’s wonderfully-curated “Sketch for Winter” series, and now lovingly remastered for LP by Chuck Johnson with new artwork by longtime friend and collaborator, Billy Joe Miller.
This music would not exist without the confluence of so many amazing people and experiences (visit link for more detailed context) including Paul Clipson, James Sterling Pitt, Bobby and Farbod, along with so many who helped this music come to life.
Grateful to share a new song, ‘September Flower’, as part of the Amazon Original series (curated by Stephen Brower) with contributions from the likes of Laraaji, Roger Eno, among others. Hope you enjoy what you hear and I encourage you to check out all the artists contributions!
Happy to share ‘Field Session °3: Battery Townsley’, the latest in an ongoing collaboration with cinematographer and bud, Ian Albert, celebrating the natural surrounds of the greater SF/Bay Area. Battery Townsley is nestled along the bluffs of Marin Headlands overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Aside from its spectacular setting, the battery has incredible acoustic resonance, making it a great space to explore sound-based work. Special shout-out to the starlings singing along with me.
As always, thank you for taking the time to listen!
Eleven days have passed since sharing a memorable night of music with Grouper and Tyler Holmes at the glorious Castro Theater, which turns an astounding 100 years old June 22nd! The show stands out as one of the most fulfilling I’ve yet played. Truly magical! Very grateful to Grouper for inviting us along and to Emi Ito for capturing some moments of the set (joined by Rich Douthit on percussion).
Very excited that in just ten short days I’ll be joined by Rich Douthit (on percussion) playing at the beloved Castro Theater with Grouper and Tyler Holmes! It’s going to be a dreamy night. Hope to see you there!
Hard to believe this is on the horizon in less than two weeks! I am beyond excited to celebrate 21 years of Three Lobed Recordings among such fine company! Massive gratitude to Cory Rayborn, who keeps things chugging along with so much heart and genuine support! It’s going to be a heady three days…
Excited to be sharing a bill with Grouper May 29th at the glorious Castro Theater in SF presented by (((folkYEAH!)))Also playing is Oakland-based artist, Tyler Holmes. I’ll be joined by longtime friend/collaborator, Rich Douthit on drums.
A welcome surprise to find my latest included on Aquarium Drunkards New Transmissions roundup of 21st Century Guitar Music! Honored to be among such a wonderful and varied collection of musicians.
And on a related note… Furniture Music II, originally a Bandcamp-only release, will be available on all digital streaming services starting January 7th c/o Three Lobed Recordings / Red Eye Distribution.
Wishing all a great start to 2022 with good health, joy and creativity!
