My little EP has been getting airplay around the country and a couple of weeks ago it broke into the Top 100 of the Americana Albums chart! This week it shot up to #86! I'm so grateful to the stations that are playing it, anyone who is requesting or telling them you like it, and that people are getting to hear it!
I'm excited and grateful to be a Paste/Noisetrade EMERGING ARTIST this week! You can see me in their newsletters, socials, and at the top of their website all of this week. You can get "That Siren, Hope" along with a bonus track for FREE there as well!
I released my cover of "Wheels of Laredo" on Aug 7th! Tim Hanseroth, Phil Hanseroth, & Brandi Carlile wrote this beautiful song which is on Tanya Tucker’s Grammy winning album “While I’m Living” & The Highwomen albums from 2019. The lyrics have haunting imagery of love, loss, longing & history. Jamboozie takes place in Laredo, TX to celebrate a battle in 1898 between white men & Native Americans who won. The mayor gave the Chief the key to the city as a sign of unconditional surrender. It's the backdrop for many juxtapositions now. The drums of both sides are represented echoing through the track and underscore a more current story and personal inner battle.
The colors of the cover art are the colors included on the flags of the Yaqui Tribe, Texas, and Mexico and the key is the key to the city from the state of Texas representing open gates and partnership.
It came out on June 12th, but I just wanted to make sure it was on here so you all know about it! While in deep quarantine, I recorded this slower, stripped-down, more melancholy version of "Ghost" from That Siren, Hope, to go with the mood ;) This is the first thing I've released that I recorded myself! It's very simple but I'm still pretty excited I was able to do it. Enjoy! And please share <3

I'm sure we've all been missing going to and/or performing live shows so I wanted to make the recordings I got from my "That Siren, Hope" release show on Jan 16th available to you! The album will be released on June 5th but is available to pre-order right now.
I'm going to be doing a live listening party where you can chat with me on Timbredio this Thursday May 28th at 5pm.
You can also listen and watch the whole show video right on my Patreon. You can become a member to get access to that and a bunch more for as little as $5 a month!
