RE: you – Album Release!

RE: you 3

Super excited to announce that my album RE: you is out NOW on New Focus Recordings. The album is a set of wordless songs based on titles from a collection of found emails. Recorded and produced by Ryan Streber, the album features incredible performances by an all-star cast of characters: Concert Black (Owen Weaver, Lisa Dowling, Domenica Fossati), Karl Larson, Mariel Roberts, Tema Watstein, Derek Johnson and Alejandro Acierto.

My long time friend, writer, filmmaker and real-life recipient of these emails wrote a really beautiful liner note, and the amazing Laura Grey did the album artwork and design. I think their words and images express what this album is far more eloquently than my rambling prose, so check out the digital booklet here and see what it’s all about!

You can pick up the disc and hear all of this music Tuesday, May 6 at Roulette on the Ear Heart Music Series. Double Bill with the incredible Mivos Quartet. SOUNDS LIKE FUN!

In the mean time here’s a little preview track:
