My second full length album, THE UNKINDNESS, is available now for preorder!

What is The Unkindness? It’s the term for a flock of ravens. It’s holding onto each other when the world feels ugly and unkind. It’s folk, rock, and classical with a Celtic soul. It’s piano and bass and drums and pedal steel and strings and beautiful backing vocals. It’s a song cycle, embracing the idea that things never really end, they only change. It’s an invitation into a world where you can escape, dream, grieve, believe, and maybe even dance. It’s a project that I cannot wait to share with you!

I started playing the piano and writing songs when I was four, a muppet babies keyboard serving as my first instrument. I started taking lessons soon after, training classically in voice and piano and earning a degree in music composition. I loved Debussy and Philip Glass, but also Tori Amos, The Beatles, Elton John, and Joni Mitchell. All of these artists shaped who I am as a musician, their influence as strong as ever when I recorded my new album.

PREORDER THE UNKINDNESS

For the first time ever, I’m partnering with PledgeMusic for launch of this album, and I’m so excited to have you involved! When you preorder The Unkindness, you’ll get the music first, ahead of the release. Pledge what you can – whether it’s a signed copy of the LP, a tote bag, a custom flask, or a house show! Spread the good word to your friends. The more pre-orders, the better chance The Unkindness has of spreading its wings in a sky that’s filled with so much news and noise.

Thank you for being a part of the flock – I am deeply grateful.

Much love,
M
