Beauty Is the End Releases “Cherub Allies” and “Helplessly Hoping,” Thoughts on Pandemic Songwriting

Two new releases on the Beauty Is the End front, one, a decidedly dark and textural original, the other, a pensive and beautiful Crosby, Stills & Nash cover. “Cherub Allies” is the sister song to “The Glass Wall,” released earlier this year. Where “The Glass Wall” had its focus turned outwards upon a post-capitalistic, xenophobic, […]

New music from my band in Berlin, Ahabs Linkes Bein

My band Ahabs Linkes Bein went to Notaufnahme Tonstudio in Muenster twice over the last year and cut a few tracks. Three of those have already been released: “100 Bier, “Walgesang,” and “Space Between the Raindrops.”     “Walgesang” and “Space Between” are opposites in some ways, the soft cloud of “Walgesang” a stark contrast to […]


There’s not much to say about 2020 that hasn’t already been said a million times, and in much more colorful language.     It’s February. 2021 is already well in swing. A heavy snow sits over everything outside and has all but paralyzed my little corner of the world, and Corona is keeping everyone more or […]

I guess I haven’t mentioned new projects – James & Black is a great soul/funk duo out of Texas who’ve been […]

End of Summer Sum-Up

As the summer’s coming to a close, I thought I’d post a few more photos, for archiving’s sake, and remark on how fortunate I’ve felt about some things I’ve been able to be a part of.  From beautiful locations to new equipment to tour with friends to three weeks back home, it was a summer […]

A Couple Pics from Paderborn

Had a great time playing with Shubangi in Paderborn at Libori Fest 2015!  We were well taken care of (I’ve found this to be a theme here in Germany!) and got to take the stage for around an hour and a half for a plaza full of people.  Good times.

Adventures in Percussion

Got to play a really neat concert at the new-ish LWL Museum here in Muenster with the Musikhochschule Muenster percussion department a few days ago.  It was a “Student’s Night” there with apparently around 5,200 people attending, and the percussionists provided a lot of the music.  In the inner courtyard, we played a decent variety including a […]
