It's all happening!!! Certainly not without a little help from you, our friends! Today finds me passing around the joyous virtual hat that is KickStarter... Upon returning from the studio yesterday, where we reviewed the first go-round of masters, we found out that our kickstarter was ready to launch!! Now we have about 20 days to raise the funds needed to complete the whole process and press up 1000 CDs. For those unfamiliar with kickstarter, you can help us out by opting to pre-order a CD or choose from the many different rewards we have posted to help us reach our goal.

Hooray, it's May! We are super excited to have wrapped up the recording process for the new album... it's sounding better than any record I've been a part of and has been a whole heckuva lotta fun ta boot! Now, we are steady mixin' it up and getting ready to send off to press...
Vela Citrine and I collaborated on the artwork in an attempt to reflect our admiration of author, Roger Hargreaves, and our love for Mr. Impossible in particular. Vela drew this picture of our wonderful family friends, Deb and Steve, for the album cover:
Lotsa stuff is happening and I'm going to try and keep this site updated on the progress of the album. We are also beginning to play out more as we finish working on the new record. We've got two gigs this Saturday and more posted up on our calendar.... check it out if you have the chance, eh?
Well friends, enjoy this beautiful day!
Spring is here... and it's finding me quite productive and looking forward to many new things!
We just received word that Cory and I will be playing a couple of shows at the 44th Annual Oregon Country Fair this upcoming Summer!!!
In addition to this exciting news, we are steadily knockin' out tracks for the new album and having a blast with the whole recording process! Here's a link to'The Check Cashing Song'from our trip into the studio today!! Brian Hennesey joined in on the upright bass for this one. We hope you enjoy it...

Wishing you a wonderful day,
Hello! Thanks so much for taking time to check out the new site and see what I've been up to lately. I'm amid many new and exciting things this year... last week, we began working on a new studio album! I'm super fortunate to have met and played with so many wonderful folks. Though we are recording mostly here in Humboldt with some talented local musicians, some more of my favorite music-making comrades will be contributing to the album from the East Coast. If you'd like to give a listen to what we've been up to, here's a link to the tracks we managed to cut during our first trip into the studio:Hawks/The Summer You Were Two
Also, we are in the middle of setting up a kickstarter campaign to make it all happen. I'm super excited about all the projects underway and happy to hear any feedback you'd like to offer. Have an amazing day!
Recently, we were invited to play a song as a part of the Humboldt Live Sessions. Our friends, Deb and Steve, gave us permission to record at their home in the Ferndale bottoms. Ferndale, the Victorian home of the quirky kinetic sculpture race, is one of my favorite towns in Humboldt County. The structure in the video is one of the oldest in town, the original farmhouse on the property. It was built in the 1880s and lived in until the current farmhouse was built in the mid 1950s. Now a'days this old, historic shack is the home of some mighty lucky laying hens and a couple cords of firewood...
