I’m very proud to present a new video I directed for my song, “I Don’t Want Your Voice to Move Me”, which premiered today. The song is an anchor for Goners and seems to be many people’s favorite from the record. We shot it over two days in September, across the state of Oregon, from the Zig Zag Ranger Station to the Alvord Desert. I learned so much working with our small crew/cast: Scott Ballard (DP), Asia Brown (AC), A.J. Van Loo (Drone shots), Josh Kletzkin (Editor/Colorist), and young Olivia Van Loo who joined me on camera. My mom and I made the costumes.
The nice folks at Brooklyn Vegan shared the video this morning, along with a few of my thoughts about making it. Watch here:
I’m honored to have been named a curator for Joyful Noise Records White Label Series, which highlights lesser-known favorite and forgotten artists by pressing their albums on vinyl. Other curators this year include St. Vincent and Juliana Barwick. Subscriptions to the series are limited and always sell out. I believe there are just a few left here.
I chose the record Hymns by wonderful songwriter and dear old friend Kele Goodwin. To celebrate, we’ll be playing two Oregon shows together. March 21stat Suttle Lodge, and March 23rd at The Old Church in Portland.
Kele will also have some copies of this wonderful record for sale at our 2 shows and on his Bandcamp page.
Also, excited to announce I’ll be back in New York, April 26th at the beautiful new Loft at City Winery.
This current U.S. Tour has been going amazingly well. We’ve just arrived in the Midwest. Yesterday was a big day for me. In all my touring I’d been to every state but one. Last night I finally caught up to the elusive South Dakota and joined the Fifty States Club.
A lot of new dates have been added. Check the shows tab for an updated list.
Thank you for your support, your conversations, your time.
