Hey, summer, what's up?!

Well, obviously, spring & summer are the most wonderful times of the year. Can I get an amen? Sorry, Christmas, you're just a little cold & dark & busy to win the title around here. Everything is nicer when the sun is shining, including me. So here's to the season for making merry & making music outdoors whenever possible.

Thank you for sharing the COVERS album with your friends & family!

I'm in love with the whole project & the way people have connected with it, and it wouldn't have happened without your support. That's a fact.

This awesome t-shirt featuring original art by Mandy Rogers Horton & design by Shelly Eve is available & will re-ordered in additional sizes, so if you don't see yours, please let us know what you need, so I can add it to the list!

TWO BIRDS mini-concerts

Along the lines of making music outdoors, my musical friend Taylor Leonhardt & I spontaneously started something we can't seem to quit, a series of back porch mini-concerts (or front porch, when it's raining).

If you could use a little live music over your lunch break, sit in while we share just one song each with a 10-minute rehearsal & an iPhone.

We've dubbed the series "Two Birds." Here's our most recent episode.

Last night, I had the extreme privilege of participating in a collective tribute to Bob Dylan's Slow Train Coming album in Carrboro, NC. Esteemed musician Tim Carless planned & led the way & Emmaus Way of Durham sponsored us at The ArtsCenter.

It's crazy energizing to play together with other musicians. Hoping we have more opportunities to work together!

Really looking forward to playing in Watertown, Wisconsin, at the end of this month and then heading immediately to ETTL to co-lead a songwriting bootcamp & do a little performance.

Discount tickets available for night-only concert passes (for a limited time). Use promo code "fireworks" and save $5 per ticket (no limit). Tix/Info:

I especially recommend ETTL to any of you musicians who are serious about both faith & excellence in art making. It's a uniquely intimate setting where you'll get to spend time with artists, listening, asking questions, being inspired. Join us!

End of July always finds me leading songwriting studio for high school students at Masterpiece Project in southern Kentucky.

I can't say enough about the way Masterpiece impacts students & staff. It's one of the highlights of my year.

The July week is already full this year, but my friend Jessica Campbell will be leading songwriting for Masterpiece the week of June 21, and there are still several spots open. Masterpiece is not just for musicians but for young artists of any medium.  Each week offers specific studios--get the details on their website.

I'll be in Nashville to write next week & will play a couple shows with Jessica Campbell July 17&18 in WV & VA, but in general I'll be hanging out around Raleigh more over the summer, which I'm glad for.

And...a surprising announcement coming soon regarding the fall, so stay tuned!

Hope you & yours are finding ways to be outside, be together & be present.

much love,



On the road again...

oh, delightful, sunny day!  Blue Carolina skies overhead.  A strangely quiet house!

Tomorrow at this time I'll be driving out to the Asheville, North Carolina, area to meet Nicole and perform at Colonial Theatre in the small, charming town of Canton.  The town is storybook-like and the theatre is just beautiful, with a lovely rounded-front stage and grand piano overlooking theater-style seating and balcony.

We are doing this concert for FREE, so I do hope if you're in the area, or know someone who is, you'll choose to spend your Friday evening with us.  We haven't played in that part of the state yet and are so excited to introduce ourselves and make some new friends.  

We also have house concerts in Wake Forest and Charlotte this weekend, in addition to participating in the installation service for new SIM director Bruce Johnson in Charlotte!  We've grown a bit attached to those SIM folks, so we love an excuse to be with them again.  

In December Nicole and I will be out together again, in NC, and will be having fun adding some Christmas music into the set!  Check the calendar...would LOVE to see you.  And, we could possibly squeeze in another couple of dates, so definitely contact us if you have an event in mind.

p.s. Have I told you lately how grateful I am for you?  



You've noticed I changed the color scheme here...I'm not a graphic designer but I will soon be having this blog-baby made over by one!  However, in the meantime, I needed a little change...a little red energy as the light is dimming with winter's approach!  Hope you're okay with it, too.  :)

Okay, so I'm posting this everywhere and would be overjoyed if you will take a moment to respond.  Nicole and I travel next week to Chicago (my old stomping grounds) and would LOVE to know that we're going to see YOU (yes, you) at UNCOMMON GROUND Clark St on FRIDAY NIGHT, OCT 2.  It's a late show--not for the faint of heart, but we know none of you could be described that way.  Capacity is 30, so it's gonna be a nice, intimate gathering.  

Please come, and please let me know you're coming.  We're bringing FLY GOLDEN EAGLE, too, so you're gonna get some diversity between the three of us.  

If that night doesn't work for you, or you just can't stay up past 9:30pm, we'd love to see you at The Heartland Cafe on THURSDAY, OCT 1.  Bring some friends--we will be oh, so happy to see you in the flesh.  

As for those of you not in the Chicago-land area, please check the schedule and come say "hello" when you can.  

We are forever grateful for your support.
