of goal

‘Nine Pin’ is my first full-length studio album, a 15-track work that is largely a product of my own songwriting and interpretations of traditional songs.

This album was written over the course of two years, wherein my time was split between touring in Canada, and studying traditional music from mentors and teachers in Elkins, West Virginia. The record reflects both of those influences, exploring elements of joy and darkness, and the expanding space in between.

I’m joined by incredible musicians and collaborators, who bring instruments and vocal styles such as trumpet, baritone guitar, five-string fiddle, moog, bowed bass, and shape-note singing into the fold.

Many of you helped my last album, ‘Sorrow Bound’, come to life. THANK YOU. It has really soared, having reached Americana radio’s most added chart in July 2015 and featured in No Depression and fRoots magazine, CBC and Sirius XM Radio, and NPR’s Folk Alley.

Let’s do it again together!

If you choose to be part of this creative process, you will receive a download of the album before it is released anywhere else, AND gain access to exclusive updates including photos, videos and blogs about the making of the album.

To infinity and beyond!
