Music, Tinnitus, and Inspiration 


Welcome to my July Newsletter.
This week marked the first day at Rax Trax -- the studio I've decided to record my next album at.
Rax Trax


I was doing some microphone tests with the fabulous Grammy nominated engineer, Rick Barnes.  I mixed my first album with Rick so I'm very excited to be working with him again.  Things are sounding amazing! 


We're on schedule to record the bulk of the album in August.  So, very exciting.  I look forward to keeping you updated.  Expect some video footage from inside the studio in the coming months.

(Haven't heard any of the new music yet?  Check out a live video here.)


"As You Are" live at SPACE
Featuring Rob Clearfield on piano, Sophie Webber on cello

Here's a new video of "As You Are".  This version features a really inspiring piano introduction improvised by the very talented Rob Clearfield.  And on a really nice grand piano I might add.  This is from a performance we had at one of our favorite venues, the SPACE in Evanston, Illinois.
