"Live From The Guest Room": 8/13 and 8/16 Sessions Available Now!

A quick update to let everyone know: I got a little carried away with the "Live From The Guest Room" concept and have already recorded four sessions. They're all up on the website now, under the "Videos" tab. You can also stream and download the audio only (for free!) under the "Live" tab.


A reminder that these sessions (both audio and video) are only available directly from the site (or YouTube, in the case of video) and so you won't find them on my Bandcamp page.


I also made a few small cosmetic changes to the site since the last update, mostly to style it after the Wilderness Amen cover art instead of the Fire and Rain art, partially because it makes some things on the site easier to see and read, and partially because I just personally like it better.


I didn't really intend to create such a deluge of content so quickly after putting up the new albums, but a) wildfire smoke has trapped me in the house for nearly a month at this point and b) I underestimated how fun these are to make, especially when I'm on break from work and there isn't really anything else I can do.


I have two more sessions planned for the near future, but I'm hoping those will actually be delayed for a bit as I want to get out into the world somewhere if there's anywhere that doesn't have endless smoke in the west and spend some time on the road and out in nature before another nonstop nine months of work starts in mid-September.


Anyway, we'll see how that all turns out...for now, here are the setlists for the third and fourth sessions. Info on the first and second sessions can be found in my previous news update.
