Why listen?

Here’s my pitch: you need this in your life.

People who play, this show is for you! We're all contending with a mutating professional landscape, jacked revenue streams and a lot of noise out there in the culture.

But you gotta keep playing.

It’s also for you if you are a listener. Be a fly on the wall.

It’s exciting times. It's almost as if the simple act of playing an instrument is a revolutionary one.

We don't draw any lines here between scenes or styles, so join the mailing list if you haven't done it already.

Be the tastemaker:

It’s here AND it’s in your podcast player!

But not everyone can find it - the tech is just too tech-y!

You may already know and enjoy the show, but you might also have friends who don't know about it yet. And that gives you your edge – you know how to find the good, lesser-known stuff.

So feel free to send one of my emails or episodes to someone you think might like it.
And Thank you!

When I started making my original work over a decade ago, I played tiny shows to get started. Every contact was personal, I would try to find the most intimate venues well-suited to my particular way of playing. I was ever-so-precious about it: I like the sound of headroom and I like to play quiet.

But after one booker said, “the more people drink during your set, the more you'll get paid, so make sure you fill the place," I started to question my choices.

"Of course!" I thought, "That's why I wrote these songs to begin with, to sell beer."

But did I get a cut of those beer sales?


I sold quite a bit of other people’s beer but got pretty worn out from it.

So my show is "sponsored" by a deep love of the art and craft of music. The podcast is too.
