This recording has been a long time coming. Jon and I have been playing duo gigs around New York City for four years and in that time have developed what I find to be subtly intimate musical connection. There is some special magic about playing with Jon and I cannot wait to capture it and share it with you.

The music for this recording stretches over the same time span. One song (“Closer Than”) I wrote a week after the first time I played with Jon. It is inspired by his unique approach to the instrument. Another tune (“How To Keep Moving, How To Stay”) was written right before Christmas 2017. I love writing for and playing in this duo format because of all of the space I am afforded to explore. Very little has to be set and anything can change in an instant.

We record in Princeton, NJ on January 26th and 27th 2018. As part of this session our gracious host will be putting on a house concert on the evening of January 27th at 7 pm. Please check the exclusives for your chance to join us in the studio and be part of the actual recording. Takes from the concert are likely to be used on the final record.

I am thrilled to be offering this PreOrder Campaign here on PledgeMusic, it is so wonderful to get to share the process of making this record with you. By pledging you will be the first to hear live updates from the studio, be the first to see the artwork, get in depth stories about each of the songs, live updates from the mixing process and a myriad other personal and up close insights into everything that goes into the making of this record. We will be donating 10% before the goal is reached and 15% after to NRDC, an organisation I feel does great work and love to support in any way I can.
