Music Video: Epic Foliage

Aaron and I aren’t usually the leaf-peeping type, but with the amount of epic foliage in New Hampshire this fall we couldn’t resist. With a single GoPro and two motorcycles we traveled the back roads from Nashua to Francestown to Bennington and back. Usually we chatter away on the radios the whole time, but on

How NOT To Use Automation as an Indie Musician

(Or “A Guide to Managing Your Robots Responsibly”) Robots are a dangerous thing. It’s no secret that I love my robots. After all: time flows like a raging river in one direction, money is just this thing that surges in and out of your life like a tide pool. Automation is what saves me the

How I Cut My Stage Setup Time In Half

Audio snakes are available all over the place… but what if you’ve got more than audio? Here’s how I built my own snakes for audio, pedals, USB, Firewire, video, and more. This is how I cut my setup time IN HALF at every show I play. You honestly shouldn’t NEED a step-by-step how-to for this

A Letter to the People of Earth

So… that just happened. I am sorry, Earthlings, but we have failed you. We tried to warn you; we seeded every conceivable villain into the heads of your best writers. Not to make your entertainment better, mind you, but to prepare you for what evil looks like. There weren’t many templates to remember, but most

Dances With Robots

This is one of the most beautiful and inspiring things I’ve seen in a while. You know of my affinity for robots- I’m the type to say “please” and “thank you” to my Amazon Echo when I ask for things. But this woman has made it her goal to teach robots how to interact with

Another Week, Another Live Stream!

In case you’ve had your head buried in a pile of election leaflets, I stream every Tuesday at 4m Eastern US time. Here’s my latest experiment, Live from the Composition Lab!

Why I Write

It’s National Day of Writing, and I was asked Why I Write. Quite simply, because my brain gets full from time to time and needs to be emptied. Why do YOU write?

Silence is Not Golden

It occurred to me recently that booking is the absolute worst thing a musician has to do. More than hauling a 75-pound keyboard onto the stage, more than constantly warming up and rehearsing and keeping the little throat-flaps in shape, more than moderating your liquor/smoke/coffee intake to protect those throat-flaps from damage, and even more

Yes, I AM working on a new album.

People have been asking me if I’m working on a new album or not. I don’t think the Earth rotates without me trying to come up with another musical project. Pretty sure if I wasn’t working on another album, you’d have heard about my untimely death by now. I’m not one of those songwriters you

GO Cover Art

Yes, I Wrote a Pokémon Song.

Crowds of millennials, children, and nostalgic thirty-somethings collide. Their faces droop towards smartphones that could reheat a frozen pizza. Some fall from cliffs like fictional lemmings, some drive into stationary objects. Some are literally renting dogs from shelters so they don’t look like a tool as they wander around alone. Some just lose weight. WHAT

Lizards, Summer Camps, Officers, and New Shows

It’s been weeks since I’ve played a live show, and I’m getting itchy. Time to fix that with two appearances and a live stream! Officers-Only Webcast – This Thursday! Every month I chat with my loyal Officers Club about stuff. Secret stuff. Also, I make noises with a piano and a mic. And there’s beer

We Can Move On

Something that always gets to me at the end of every good concert is that feeling of “It’s Over.” It’s the same feeling I get at the end of every convention weekend, great vacation, spontaneous jam session… this sense of sad parting, as though it will be an eternity before we can make this happen
