31 Covers in 31 Days + New Shirts

Well, another year…another 31 cover videos!!!

This will be the fourth year of me making 31 Cover Videos in 31 Days. Am I crazy or something!?

Check them out here on the Videos page.

In other news, got some shows with Chuck Ragan (the Shows section says only one in Nashville although I *may* be loitering around at his Chicago and Cleveland shows as well) and there are two new shirts in the merch section. All shirt sales go towards the purchase of an affordable digital keyboard that will hopefully make it in some of the YouTube videos! Don’t forget about that donate button too hehe 😉

Merry New year everybody, hope to see you real soon <3

Tour Dates in UK + North American Tour with Billy Bragg + New Single

Soooo…

This is a big one for me. If you ever told me I would be going on tour with Billy Bragg I would never believe you. But…here it is. I’m a huge fan and have been for a long, long time. Also excited to see UK fans and friends again so soon after the tour with Chuck Ragan and Northcote. For more information click here.

Here’s the next single from the new album. It’s called “Phone Bills”.
