Patty Griffin, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, Greg Brown, Neko Case, Richard Julian, Joni Mitchell…for their songs. I’ve loved them as long as I can remember. They fix a bad day, make the best fun better, and change an ordinary car ride into something I don’t want to end. For years and years I was too intimidated to mess with the magic myself. But something got into me, and now it’s all I want to do. I wrote the songs on The Girl I Left Behind over the past few years and made a record with a bunch of stellar local players. I was so taken by the process and learned so much about making music, I can’t get enough. Thank you for checking out my music!
