Hey all –
Over the coming months, you’ll see some slow changes to the platform of this blog, including the design elements, the layout, etc. I want everything to reflect every project that I’m currently working on as part of this blog – from the Skyline Sessions, to the intimate concerts, to the blog itself. I don’t envision actually taking the site down to do significant updates for a while, so don’t worry! I just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
In the meantime, I’ll be announcing a few more shows over the coming weeks – and doing a few more Skyline Sessions. I’m so unbelievably excited about all of these, and I hope you are too.
If you didn’t get a chance, take 3 minutes and watch the most recent Skyline Session, which we filmed the night of Courtney Marie Andrews and Erin Rae’s house show. I haven’t felt as emotionally vulnerable as I did listening to those two women on that beautiful evening in a long time.
Please keep an eye out for exciting changes here – and hopefully I’ll see all of you on November 13th at 914 N. California for an intimate evening with Cuddle Magic and Kalispell.
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.
