New track up on GN benefit comp!

Autumnal greetings,

I am honored to share some new music on the excellently curated Halloween-themed benefit comp “A Little Night Music: Aural Apparitions from the Geographic North”, featuring an incredibly stacked roster of artists!


Alll proceeds go directly to the Feminist Women’s Health Center – an Atlanta non-profit providing compassionate abortion and gynecological care, as well as community programs aimed at advancing reproductive rights, health, and justice.

The limited double-cassette has now sold out but is eternally available in DIGI via bandcamp as well as on all streaming platforms (iTunes, Spotify…)

Wishing all good health and please go VOTE!!!

With love,

Happy 20th Anniversary to Three Lobed Recordings!!!

Earlier this week, the good folks at Aquarium Drunkard put together a feature celebrating 20 yrs of Three Lobed Recordings. To mark the occasion, a variety of people were invited to share thoughts on albums that have made an impact on them. I am humbled to have been included and grateful to be a part of this incredible family of artists!

Below are some thoughtful reflections on my LP “Between Two Words” (2013) by William Tyler and Chuck Johnson, both of whom happen to be personal guitar heroes and all-around solid human beings. Truly touched by these words:

via companion feature on the equally awesome site, Doom & Gloom From The Tomb

I definitely encourage you to visit the full feature linked above, as it takes a deep-dive into an even deeper catalogue of varied adventurous sounds.

Here’s to another 20 yrs to one of the best labels around!

Wishing you all good health and peace,

Great day to support artist on Bandcamp!

Greetings everyone !

Bandcamp is once-again waiving their cut of sales to support musicians being impacted by COVID-19 pandemic. 100% proceeds today will go directly to artists until midnight PDT. So If you are in a position to support, today is a good day to do so!

Please check you my personal page but I also encourage you to explore other pages, as many folks have shared new/unreleased gems specifically for today. A few that come to mind include buddies Chuck Johnson, Sarah Davachi, and Mike Weis. Additionally, there are a ton of amazing small labels that could use help to keep things afloat.

In other news, I wanted to share a sweet new playlist by the venerable Ben Watt who graciously included me on called “Season of the String”. It can be accessed via Spotify or Apple Music. He spoke about his inspiration for it on NPR a few days back. I’m truly honored he’s found my tunes soothing during these uncertain days, as I hope you do too.

Thank you as always for taking the time to listen and support!

Sending love and wishing all good health!

Onward, onward…

Well it’s officially been one month since shelter-in-place took effect here in San Francisco. As we all learn to adjust to this strange interior existence, I am reminded of the uncertainty many of us hold as we go about our lives. This tune reflects that uncertainty… kind of like getting on a train and not quite knowing where you’re going. Onward, onward!

With love,

For the time being…

It’s the middle of the week and my sense of time continues to feel more and more abstracted. A friend of mine once described the difference between being “on” time and being “in” time. To be on time is to adhere to a schedule and to prioritize things like punctuality. To be in time means one relates to time in a much looser way. I identify with the latter and tend to move at my own pace.

With that, I offer a tune to welcome the sun after a couple days of steady rain. Music is my marker…

Wishing you all good health!

Supporting Artists During the Pandemic

Dear all – hope this finds you safe and well during these challenging times.

As you might imagine, musicians are being impacted by this pandemic on a multitude of levels. Here is one way you can support! This Friday March, 20 from midnight to midnight Bandcamp will be waiving their revenue share so that artists can pocket 100% of sales. It is a lovely gesture that can make a massive difference for folks. I plan to participate and I hope you will too. Might even share some new material on my page… we’ll see!

Wishing you all good health and lightness.

Take care,

DPG

Solstice Blessings & Spotlight on Quiet Space

Wishing you all a very happy summer solstice filled with sunshine, togetherness and good health!

To further honor the sun, I am pleased to share a feature brought to you by the wonderful folks at Quiet Space based out of South Africa who spotlighted my Longform Editions contribution. In addition to including this piece, the episode thoughtfully compiled a cross-section of musical offerings spanning several of my releases over the years. Very grateful for their support and hope you enjoy the tunes…

With love and light,

DPG
