I write songs: sad songs, happy songs, funny songs, weird songs, dancing songs, and everything in between.
I play instruments: the pedal steel guitar, upright bass, singing saw, harmonica, autoharp, drums, mountain dulcimer, ukulele and more.
I live in Western Massachusetts, and draw inspiration from the deep beauty of the forests, the vivid history of the cities and towns, and the rich bounty of the art and music community.
Past and current projects include the Moles, the Salvation Alley String Band, Police Kittens, Night School, Andy & Brandee, Mystics Anonymous, Servitor, Laminated Apes, and True Value. I've collaborated with many musicians in Western Massachusetts including the Winterpills, Gentle Hen, the Lonesome Brothers, Brandee Simone, the Bunwinkies, Opal Canyon, Beasthampton, and the Connecticut River Band.
