Well hello! 2012 was rediculously amazing! I shared the stage with so many of my heroes and friends, traveled the world, met tons of absolutely wonderful folks. It was crazy. Check out my blog post below for a detailed look at everything I got up to in 2012, including videos and pictures!
It feels as though the foundation I have been working so hard to build my whole life is finally done and its time to start building! 2013 will certainly be that. There are tons of things I am so close to announcing, but not able to just yet. BIG STUFF. Still pinching myself kind of stuff. So check back often! One of my new years resolutions is to stay more current with this stuff!
Here are a few announcements!
New videos - From my live broadcast on KEXP. This is super well documented and with some of the players from my record!
And another nice video from The Ecstatic Music Festival.
I was also just commissioned by The Liasons Project to write an arrangement for solo piano of a Stephen Sondheim tune!
Some Shows -
I am also performing at Adelaide Festival on March 6th. I am performing with an orchestra at this one playing music from Composed with some special guest singers. The show will also have a couple of my favorite bands on the bill, Deerhoof and Buke and Gase. It will be a real great one!
Finally, I just wanted to remind you all about my newest release called "Scores", available on CD or digitally. It is instrumental versions of the songs from "Composed". When I was recording "Composed", I was at a point where all the music was done and no vocals had been added. I almost kept the record instrumental because I loved the space and feeling the music had and was scared to loose this. As soon as I heard the vocalists add their stuff, my concerns went away, but the instrumentals give you a chance to perhaps discover some details overlooked in "Composed". "Scores" also comes with option of... YOU GUESSED IT! Scores for the entire record! All of the parts for all of the instruments for your own playing pleasure! I am excited about this because usually scores are hard to come by or expensive. These are neither of those things! Enjoy!
Alright! Happy New Year everyone and be sure to check out my '2012 round up' blog below.
