Update – Up To Date!

Hey everybody –

So I’m sitting at home with a fever, nursing a nasty headache, and I figured that was as good of a time as any to throw a big old update your way.

1st of all – if you’ve missed them so far, I urge you to check out the Music Means Family Skyline Sessions – we take a bit of time before various house shows to film 1 song sessions, and I’m really proud of how the first three turned out. It truly is amazing how talented these folks are. So, take a look at the 1st three sessions, with Courtney Marie Andrews, Field Report, and Hip Hatchet.

We’ll have a couple more coming your way, after our next few house shows. Which you should come to. They’re next week. And they’ll be awesome.

On November 11th, we have a special evening with Vikesh Kapoor. Vikesh is a stunning songwriter, and wowed a couple thousand of us earlier this year at Timber! Watch this video – then go to the event page, then RSVP, then come.

The Event Page!

Then, I’m beyond excited to present the Brooklyn-based Cuddle Magic, with an opening set from Kalispell on November 13th. Again, watch this video, click the link, RSVP, and show up!

I really do hope I get to see some of you at one of these shows. They really are special occasions.

Last, but not least, Caroline Smith is playing at The Hideout this Friday. You’d be crazy not to go. She just did an awesome session with the great guys over at Audiotree – check it out, and come hang out on Friday night.

See you soon, I hope!

Introducing…The Skyline Sessions

Hey everybody!

Happy almost middle of the week! As many of (read: all of you) know, I’ve been obsessively curating house concerts as of late, and hopefully, you’ve all been to one or will be coming to one in the future.

However, if you haven’t been able to make it – I have a special treat for you. My cousin Dan and I have begun to record simple sessions before each show, one or two songs, with the hope of sharing them with you. Well, after some trial and error, I am truly, truly overjoyed to present to you the first two Skyline Sessions, from the recent shows with the fantastic gentlemen of Field Report, as well as the exceptionally talented Hip Hatchet. Know that I intend to write more thoroughly about these shows in the near future, but I wanted to give you a glimpse of these – and frankly, I was too excited not to share. And now…

Skyline Session #1 – Field Report – I Am Not Waiting Anymore (Alternate Version)

 

Skyline Session #2 – Hip Hatchet – American Charm

 

I am so, so excited about these – and I can’t wait to share more with you! Also, if you’re in Chicago this weekend – two really incredible house shows coming up, with Courtney Marie Andrews and Erin Rae on Friday, and Bryan John Appleby on Saturday.
