Dear friends & family,
The week of reckoning has finally arrived!
After almost three months of hard work from myself, my wonderful bandmates and my incredible producer, I am releasing my first album, TIDES this week!
This is a project I have had in mind in some form for the past five years, with songs I wrote when I was 19 and songs I wrote this past winter, and everything in between. It is my great pleasure to be able to put it forth into the world, and of course, I owe all of you immense thanks for your support and patience and kindness during the process and throughout my life. I am so grateful I’ve finally gotten to do this, and I hope you enjoy it.
Additionally, and somewhat astoundingly, the band I’ve been playing with this year, The Live Cultures is releasing its own album as well, this week also. This is not just my music, but music from all of my incredible bandmates.
Both albums have handmade cases! The first 120 TIDES albums are in special edition linoleum block hand-printed cases, and the Live Cultures album features homemade stamp artwork.
Here is a music video by the wonderful Julia Ross of my song “West”
