I am thrilled to say that Lotte Kestner and I are playing nine shows in China in August! Neither of us have been to China and we can’t wait to see everyone there.

“What we saw in the 20th century was an anomalous blip when music had a physical form. Music has this intrinsic pull
towards the dematerial, towards the unbuyable.
It’s a slippery, ghostly thing.” — Jace Clayton
“History today seems more like a postmodern collage; we are surrounded by two dimensional representations of our heritage. Access via amazon.com or iPod to all those boxed sets of old blues singers- or Nick Drake, for that matter doesn’t equate with the sense of discovery we experienced. The existence of such a wealth of information creates an overload that can drown out revelation.”- Joe Boyd
I had the pleasure of singing a duet with Lotte Kesnter at a beautiful all a’capella event at St. Mark’s Cathedral on Saturday evening. This song will likely be on her next album, it is such a great song even without the instruments. This venue (church) is just stunning- a year and a half ago I got to open for Damien Jurado in this space and Anna-Lynne sang with me then, and returned the favor of having me sing with her at this event.
Lotte Kestner and I will be touring together in June, come check us out!
