Each morning I wake up and walk outside to one of the more expansive views taking in the whole bay in one breath, from Marin to the Golden Gate Bridge to the southern tip of San Francisco. In the morning the fog rolls in and up. At dusk, the fireball settles into the mountains and pulses for a moment before tipping back, leaving us with night when the lights from the city flicker like fireflies in sequins.
My long time friend Brian Axel opened for me in San Francisco. He plays open tuning, spacious and spiritual blues that transformed Amnesia from music bar into a cathedral. This folks at Amnesia were friendly and kind, and the crowd came in from the rain and lingered. The next night we shared a bill at Bocci’s in Santa Cruz. I loved the drive down the coast. Before the show I took a spin around town, saw the campus, the llama farms, the hidden world out back, beach houses, watched some world class surfers, and the sun setting over the Pacific. The crowd was small, tattooed, raucous, loaded, generous, interactive, funny. I love Santa Cruz.
Eight more dates to go! I perform solo, creating rhythm tracks and harmony in live loops of breathy beats and scratchy strums, to accompany my own lead vocal. All original songs, based on poetic lyrical structure, like Leonard Cohen or Patti Smith, grounded with electric guitar. My vocals have been compared to Cat Power, Aimee Mann, and Liz Phair.
