Hey you all-
Well… it is a gorgeously sunny spring day here and the trees are in full bloom – white, purple, pink and yellow. You would never know that something as big and frightening as the Corona virus is taking place in the world right now. I have been doing a lot of reconnecting with friends and family and cooking up a storm. (note to self: google mumus). I like that part of shelter in place days.
We have had to cancel all of the Spring dates of course but, we are rescheduling as fast as we can. I will list the dates below. Tomorrow, March 27 is the official release date of A Long Way Back – the songs of Glimmer. It sure is a strange time to be releasing a record. There are so many important things going on right now that it almost seems frivolous but, I am really proud of this record. I am excited for you all to hear these songs from Glimmer on its 20th anniversary in their new stripped down versions. It is available now on CD, Download or traditional black vinyl.
I’ll be playing some online shows. I will keep you posted. Right now, I am scheduled to play Shut In And Sing on Stage It at 8:30 on May 1st. There are a lot of great things going on w/ this online concert series. Check it out: www.stageit.com/ShutInandSing
Until I see you next, I will leave you with one of my favorite recipes – The Life Changing Bread. It is an especially good bread recipe for now as everyone seems to be panic buying yeast and flour and this recipe is gluten free – sans flour.
Follow me on Instagram for more recipes and the occasional song. Also keep in touch. Got a good recipe to share or a story or tips for sheltering? Let me know.
Take care of yourselves

Happy New Year, you all! I have some news and some new tour dates to tell you about. First off, Yep Roc will be releasing A Long Way Back – the Songs of Glimmer on regulation LP and CD March 27th. If you missed out on the limited, special edition version (it sold out in 4 days!) you can still grab the music here. The first single from the new album is Come Around. I will include a link so you can listen to it and preorder the LP or CD if you like. The LP will come with a download so on the off chance you haven’t purchased a new turn table or unearthed the old from of your attic yet, you can listen to the download:
This spring on the Glimmer 20th Anniversary Tour we will be playing Glimmer in its entirety and (of course) old favorites as well. Get your “old favorite” requests in soon. I hope to see you out there.
Again, thanks so much to all of you that come to shows and purchase my music. You’re the best and I couldn’t do what I do without you!
