I'm in the middle of an incredible two-week stay at the Banff Centre. Nestled in the Canadian Rockies, the environment is so inspiring for devoting time to music; each day is filled with practicing, composing, and developing music for my trio with Emily Asher and Tom Abbott, Endangered Species.
Tin Hat's Final Shows
When I joined Tin Hat in 2010, the band had already been together for over a decade and released six albums. It was a legacy that I was honored to be a part of. Alas, the time has come to put an end to this chapter of the band. As Carla Kihlstedt says:
"Even with all of our new space-time-continuum-defying technologies, the great geographic divide has been hard for us to overcome. We still have a list of special projects and recordings that we want to do, so we’re saving our collective energies for those, and we’re setting aside the old band-makes-record-and-tours model. Actually, we set it aside a little while ago. Now we’re just making it official."
So, come out and celebrate our last shows with us!
March 12, 8pm - The Loft, San Diego
March 13, 8pm - McCabe’s Guitar Shop, Santa Monica

Bria Skonberg tour
NYC-based Trumpeter Bria Skonberg is coming to California for a short tour, and I'm honored to be a part of her band. The Wall Street Journal says Bria is "poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation."
"Shadowbox" CD release
