I present to you my cover of Radiohead’s “Creep”, performed live at The Ballard Baitshop in Seattle, WA last spring with Sophia Duccini. This song has moved me deeply throughout my life, and it’s been an honor and a joy to sing it every night on tour this fall. Check out the full video and share it or tag your friends in the comments!

Today is the day! My new record, Swansea, is officially out in the world! I spent years making this album and gave it everything I have. Now it is your turn to take these songs and make them your own.
I wrote this record about various experiences I’ve had with loss – the loss of love, the ending of relationships, and the death of a friend. Swansea is my concept of a place – the place where we go when we lose someone. In the Swansea, we find ourselves faced with our own solitude and loneliness, but we also find strength in remembering how to stand on our own two feet. I hope that my songs bring you comfort and healing if that’s what you need, make you feel inspired, or move you in some way. This record was very therapeutic for me to write, and it is my greatest pleasure to pass it on to you today. I have never felt more proud of something that I made. Thank you for taking the time to listen, and thank you for your love! #lp3swansea
Listen to Swansea here.
My third single, “South of Sound”, is out today! Writing this song helped me process what was a difficult and confusing relationship, and ultimately one that needed to come to an end. Songwriting is my therapy and my joy, and I hope that this song moves you in some way. You can stream it on all digital platforms here, and pre-order my new album, Swansea, here. (There are less than TEN limited edition pressings of blue vinyl left – thank you to everyone who has pre-ordered a copy!) #LP3swansea

I’m thrilled to announce that my Seattle album release show will be at St. Mark’s Cathedral, on Saturday, October 12, 2019. With a special string ensemble and support by the amazing Galen Disston of Pickwick and Brenda Xu. St. Mark’s Cathedral is my favorite place to sing, and when you add strings into the mix it is otherworldly. Tickets are on sale now!
Be the first to snag a VIP ticket, which also includes the Swansea Listening Party on September 7, 2019 – hosted by Lemolo at the private Seattle recording studio where the record was made. The evening will include a cocktail hour and meet and greet with the band and producer, a first listen of Swansea in its entirety, and a stripped down performance of a selection of new songs from the album. A very limited number of tickets are available for this intimate evening.
