My first new album in five years is almost finished!
I’m so excited to announce the forthcoming release of my new album The Great Make Believer. The record features some of the best songs I’ve ever written, and it was created in a totally different way from how I’ve worked in the past. How different? Well, check out this short video:
I’m very proud of these songs; they’re raw, spacious, and full of collaborative energy (thanks to some amazingly talented players). In keeping with that collaborative spirit, I’d love for you to play a part in this album’s release too.
I’ve partnered with PledgeMusic to offer a Pre-Order of the The Great Make Believer, along with regular updates on the project, behind-the-scenes videos and recordings, a few rad exclusives that will bring you closer to the creative process, plus some limited-edition posters, poetry chapbooks, poetry broadsides, t-shirts, and more.
The campaign will run for 60 days, and we’re hoping to raise enough funds to cover the last few steps in releasing the music (mastering, artwork/design, manufacturing, and marketing).
It would mean the world to me if you played a part in making this album a reality.
Last week when I was in Oregon, I stopped by Yellow Room Recording to do a live ‘in-studio’ session and interview for the awesome Portland station KZME (107.1 FM). Rob Stroup and Naomi Hooley came along to play percussion and sing some background harmonies.

The broadcast is now live as a podcast on the Yellow Room site — and below. Hear us run through new songs “Lonely People,” “Silently,” “Eden,” “Mission Bells,” “Anonymous,” “Fisher King,” and Harry Nilsson’s “1941” — and chitchat about each tune.
