About the album:
Might Nighis an Appalachian English word meaning almost or very nearly.
This album represents songs of homecoming and passage. Moving back to
the upstate region of South Carolina after four years of living in New
York city (and before that, Boston), I reconnected with the sights and
sounds of my childhood- the Blue Ridge Mountains, the sounds of southern
tree frogs and cicadas at night. Life came richly- I got married and
embarked on a lifetime exploration of loving another human being through
ups and downs, we lost his father Jack to cancer, and I have explored
at new depths and heights the joys and losses of life. These experiences
have woven themselves into a group of songs that I am proud of- songs
that survived self critique and re-writing to make it into the final
record shared here.
Recorded and mixed with Scott Minor at Wild
Chorus Studio in Knoxville, Tennessee and also engineered in Austin,
Texas with Grant Johnson, the album showcases familiar voices and sounds
from previous records (shout out to the Annie Street crew), but also
brings an infusion of more rock-driven and electronic sounds to the
fore. This record is a natural next step, and I am excited to share it
The funds raised here will pay for final mixing with
Wild chorus, Mastering with Carl Saff in Northwest Chicago, the costs of
artwork for the album and CD printing costs. Any additional funds
raised beyond the project goal will go to use in the form of independent
promotion of this record as it is not financially supported by any
record label. As an independent artist, anything above the project
goal will be used to share this record with as many people as possible.
thanks to fans and friends who have supported this music over the
years. I'm very excited to share this project with you and hope you will
be inspired to share it with others. Thanks for your support!
Spent some pretty incredible days in Austin recording at Good Danny's and Church House studio... what an incredible group of people sharing their creativity and shaping these songs. I feel like I was part of something historic! Shout out to Engineer Grant Johnson and an amazing group of musicians, Lindsey Verrill, Andrew Pressman, Matthew Shepherd, Linky Barmore, Chris Cox, Stephen Orsak, and Kendra Kinsey... videos and pictures to come, but for now, check out this space!

Heyo! I'm here at my house creating a map for my upcoming tour to the Netherlands in April. I've toured in Europe twice before but have never had the pleasure of spending a whole tour in a single country there... pretty excited. The final dates will be coming out soon...
