The peril of going to college in Iowa... writing songs about corn. Specifically, banjo songs. For a slight departure from my usual material... "Go West, Young Corn!" Link below!

When all your dreams and goals are self-inflicted, sometimes you end up "Stuck With The Storm"... of your own expectations, and the knowledge that only you can make yourself reach them.

If it never quite walks like a duck and never quite quacks like a duck... maybe it was never a duck at all. If you're also not a duck, then here's a "Swan Song" for you!

"Calliophobia"--the fear of beauty. See also: the futility of perfectionism. (Which means, of course, this is the song and drawing that said perfectionism made the hardest...) Take a listen below!

Remember when I used to upload new music every week? Well, those days are back! Introducing my new Kraken-A-Week project! Every Friday at noon I'll have a new original song... along with a hand-drawn kraken!

I recorded my first album five years ago and haven't really released much since. And the longer I let things sit, the harder they are to restart... And the songs keep stacking up. (I am a songwriter after all!) Playing four instruments at once is easy live; not so much when recording! So I've decided the easiest way to move forward is to start with simple acoustic versions.

Today's kraken and song are "Letting Go"—of the side of the abyss, of inhibitions about recording, of holding back.

Take a listen below!
