Northwest Tour Update

I lived in the pacific northwest--Seattle, specifically--for nine years.  Although I'm from the south originally, the pacific northwest always felt like home.  It was a no-brainer for me to at least attempt to do a tour out this way.  I toured my first solo show, The Good, the Bad, and the Monkey to Bellingham, Seattle, … Continue reading Northwest Tour Update

I’m in Philly. And I’m prepared.

I arrived in Philly today (in town in plenty of time for my three fringe shows this weekend) and have been bopping around on my own exploring different areas of this cool city.
