so happy to be playing tonight with these peeps -- gonna be an amazing evening of stories and songs with KT Tunstall, Philip Sheppard, Kimberley Motley, and Steve Connell (with the relentless Aj Paron-Wildes making it all happen). if you're in the area i hope you can make it out to the Rialto Bozeman.

I'll be playing this Friday night at the Rialto in Bozeman with some friends of mine.
This is going to be an amazing evening of stories and songs, and I think it will blow your socks off.
All of us have donated our time to support Kimberley Motley, a lawyer who has been working in Afghanistan to carve out basic social justice and representation to women through her Identification Project -- providing marginalized women with basic identification so they can access the human rights, services and opportunities that are otherwise unavailable.
Kimberley is an incredibly inspiring storyteller, and the stories are going to be interwoven with the songs of KT Tunstall ("Suddenly I See," etc.), world renowned cellist Philip Sheppard and myself, featuring action-poet and man-on-fire Steve Connell. All of this brought to you #becauseofhatch.
If you can come I think you will be deeply moved, inspired and happy you did.

i love 'a new world,' but i think my favorite is 'a raven has my heart.' yes, it's dark and it's slow, but it says things i never thought i'd say, things i never thought i'd be able to say. 'raven' is my soul laid bare. #tbt

had a lovely time playing at blunderbuss last week — and then setting these off:

hey everyone, i've been avoiding my computer and realized i didn't wish you all happy new year so, you know, belated HAPPY NEW YEAR!
i know 2017 was brutal. i know there's no switch that gets thrown on january 1 that makes everything different. but i also know that each one of us want something -- for ourselves, for our loved ones, for our world -- and that if we can remember what we want and remember to work towards it, 2018 will be better.
there's no way we can fail if we never give up <3

sad to say, i am selling my les paul. this guitar has been played on every black lab album, from 'your body above me' to 'a new world,' and could be seen onstage during the 97-98 tour. it's in great working condition (if a little worn) and sounds amazing. i've squeezed all the sounds out of this one i could and it's time to pass it along. i'll even autograph it for you if you want <3

we're getting all sentimental over here on the 20th anniversary of our debut.
i've never actually seen one of these but they're rumored to exist (someone posted a pic of one last week but now i can't find the notification!). do you have one? or a CD of our single for 'time ago'?
