return to the source b/w do you understand (demo)

hello from the road 👋
Minneapolis, MN with Pete. Circa 2023.

🚐 We’re having a real good time out here on tour with Bonny Doon. Special thanks to the good people of Minneapolis for a lovely show at First Ave the other day. Tickets for remaining dates available here. We’re in Denver tonight at The Gothic.

👀 I was a guest on the Songwriter Podcast this month to share a song I wrote inspired by David Sedaris’s diaries and talk about writing. You can check that out here. I also really enjoyed this recent conversation with Josh Terry. Been doing a lot of interviews the last few months, linked there if you’re curious.

💿 ICYMI, our new album Crying, Laughing, Waving, Smiling is out now. Give it a listen and grab a copy (plus a bunch of new merch) here.

✏️ This month I’m answering a mailbag question about returning to faithful musical sources, plus we’ve got the original demo of “Do You Understand.”
