I’ve been tracking my first solo full-length at Tiny Telephone. Laurence takes a well-deserved break from shadowing Jamie (engineer extraordinaire).

I’m playing a show this Saturday, January 18th, at Subterranean Arthouse in Berkeley, California. Doors are at 7:30 and I play at 8. Would love to see your shining faces!

Another Trip Around the Sun - Madeline Tasquin

I met Maddy a couple years ago, sometime in the first week of December, at a house party in Oakland. I’d never been to a house party in Oakland, and I don’t think I had, at that point in my life, seen so many songwriters smashed together in a room, unofficially, just for fun. That night seems a point from which many happenings and interactions sprouted, but Maddy stands out as a straight thread from then to now, a fixture of sorts in a constantly shifting milieu. 

Now she’s headed on a European Tour, and to send her off in style we’ll be playing at Le Peña in Berkeley this Friday night, the 6th of December. It’s going to be a night full of beautiful music. Also available will be photographs by yours truly, both framed and loose, for you and/or all the people you love/are buttering up for the holidays. Tickets can be purchased here, and you can RSVP on facebook here.
