Greetings from Seattle! I am still recovering from a few too many adventures abroad on a very fun whirlwind of a European tour, as well as drunken late nights in NYC, and the humidity and mosquito bites of New Orleans. This site will be undergoing an intense overhaul very soon, but here's the news for now:
* Dame Darcy and I are working on a three-page comic about my "Romp through Europe". All I will say for now is that there are a lot of men in it.
* The final set is currently being built in the bayou of New Orleans for the "Lark of my Heart" music video. The stills I've seen from our footage so far are stunning. Now we have to shoot the Eliza puppet with her moody, brooding love interest. It will be released late summer/early fall.
* I am wrapping up both new albums this summer here in the state of Washington. 'Footnotes for the Spring', my long overdue followup to 'O, You Sinners', has a release date of Oct 20. 'The Fire Went Wild' is a collection of cover songs, and it will have an internet-only release shortly before then. I revealed a crop of the latter's album cover yesterday on instagram, which you can view here.
* Last but not least, I am THRILLED to announce that I will be teaming up with "Welcome to Night Vale" yet again this fall! This will also account for the US/CAN leg of my album release tour, which seems extra fitting since that little podcast is how so many of you have heard of me (below is a collage of polaroids I took while on tour with them last year). Check the "tour" section of this site for show dates. My EU show dates will be posted by the end of the summer.
