Solo Piano: now available!

Solo Piano, my first live album, is now out in the world and obtainable! Order a physical CD here or download the record right away here.

I recorded this thing all over the place, and I’m immensely pleased to have it back out in the world. It sounds like this:

Hello from the middle of Nebraska. I’m in the middle of a six-week national tour — if you live near one of these places, hopefully I’ll see you in the near future!

Until then, please enjoy the new music. Thanks for your support. I can’t wait to hear what you think of the live record.

Solo Piano

My first live album, Solo Piano, comes out at the end of next week! If you preorder the record here, it gives you a download of three songs immediately. The cover looks like this:

Solo Piano was recorded at shows I played in thirteen different states — it’s both my first live album and the first record of solo piano music that I’ve released.

Right now I’m extracting myself from the White Mountains and frantically getting ready for this fall’s national tour, which starts early next week. Dates are here, including several in Montana, Oregon, Colorado, Texas and other large states.

More soon,

There’s a New Album Coming

I’m happy to announce Solo Piano, my first live album. While the music I write is generally pretty lush, I’ve always performed it live on just one instrument. That decision ultimately resulted in these distinct piano versions of my songs, which have never been available on record in this form before. I knew that if I released them I wanted the recordings to be live, I liked the idea of combining geographically disparate performances, given the themes of the music. So to make this record, I recorded basically all my shows from the last year and have hand-picked my favorite performances. Here are thirteen songs, each recorded in a different place and time. One was recorded at a cafe in Arizona, another in a living room in Tennessee, another on a boat(!) in Michigan, and others from Vermont, Maine, Oregon, Nebraska, and more. Four of the songs have never been released before at all.

Preorder Solo Piano and view more details here.
