Good Grief on sale September 25th

My 13th (!) solo album, Good Grief will be available as a download and on CD this Friday, September 25th! This long-in-the-works project started back in 2008 and after a number of pauses for reflection, personal crises, wranglings with various schedules, and intensive work periods, it's finally being unleashed. You can read about the whole enterprise, from its inception to conclusion, here, but manifold heartfelt thanks to the truly international cast of contributors, including Eric Block, Lee Bloom, Jimmy De Lauriea, Ned Doherty, George Friend, Mike Hagler, Lance Helgeson, Howie Kantoff, Lupe Martinez, Paul Morbeck, Wim Oudijk, Brian Stout, Chris Stamey, and Bobby Sutliff for making it happen.

Some reviews have already appeared in Alan Haber's Pure Pop Radiobabysue, Broken Hearted Toy, and Listen Here, as well as airplay -- sometimes multiple spins -- via This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio, Pure Pop Radio, The Razor and Die Show, Snap, Crackle, POP!, Plastico Elastico, UIC Radio, Radio JJ, Zero Hour, Radio One Chicago, CHIRP, and Radio Free Americana, with (hopefully!) more to come. I'll keep posting them regularly once the album is officially "live."

Thanks, as always, for your support, and wish me luck on the launch of Good Grief!

Americans for Prosperity single is out August 28th


In anticipation of my 13th (!) solo album, Good Grief, out September 25th, and considering the current political zeitgeist, comes this timely standalone single. 

“Americans for Prosperity” is narrated from the dual perspectives of the put-upon citizen-worker, trying to keep their head above water and fighting for monetary scraps in the “trickle-dumb economy,” and bosses-followers of the Koch Brothers' “zero sum” ideology. "AFP" was recorded last summer with backing from George Friend (guitar), Lance Helgeson (drums), Dann Morr (bass), and Amy Russell (backing vocals), and it will be available as a digital download August 28th via iTunes, Bandcamp, Amazon, et al.

The official release event is here. Hope you enjoy!
