Thanks for following! You'll get any future updates.
A long time may have passed since you received any news from me. In summer of 2009 I released my last record El Radio. Since then, time has been filled mostly with touring, primarily in Europe and Asia, until this past June when I was given the opportunity to get around the U.S. supporting Keren Ann.
Now it is mid-autumn and I am leaving Brooklyn for the mountains upstate to begin making my new record. I am free of contract and label obligations at this moment in my life, which is exciting but can be limiting as well. I have partnered with PledgeMusic to raise funds to make this record and am going to need your help and support. In return, there are all kinds of fun things I will give you: one-of-a-kind polaroids, home recordings, postcards from the road, lampshades from tour (!), setlists, concert tickets, sheet music, skype meetings, and more !
Throughout the recording process over the next few months, I will make video updates and send you news from wherever I am. I am really excited to make my third album and look forward to your help and love, and we can actually make this project together !
Thank you for staying in touch and I hope this recording process can be something we can all enjoy together.
Happy November !
