Slowly learning letting go. End of a tour is always hard. Returning to real life. This last month was epiphany-laden. Altered understanding of what’s possible in all this. When you’re in the eye of the storm, it’s easy to put life on hold. When you return to it, you realize it sped along while you were focused on yourself. There were moments I felt weightless. I was effortlessly lifted by the benevolent hands of this chosen family - they helped me be a version of myself that could live in deep subtextual dialog with kindred strangers each night. To let go of what I expected or needed from the exchange. To just enjoy the gratuitous absurdity of beauty and kindness. Of course, I have to let go of all of this, also. We must trust in the potential for calmness a’plenty. Holding on to letting go doesn’t make much sense, does it. Thank you thank you thank you. More, please . . . I’ve lost track of photo credits on these shots. If they belong to you, pls lemme know so I can credit 📷 @ Vancouver, British Columbia

If you wanted to share some thoughts about a recent show experience, or if one of my songs has lived in your life in some capacity, the fine folks at Amazing Factory would love to hear from you. They documented my recent hometown show and are seeking voice memos from people who have found something in my work or shows - old or recent. Simply record a voice memo with your phone and email it to [email protected]

One thing Spotify does a great job of is providing artists with extremely detailed breakdowns of who is listening, and where, and how. Of course, streaming as a model has some distance to come if it’s to help artists make a living, but I’m not going to get into that right now. One thing I just want to mention is that the method by which many/most artists become big players on the platform are via editorialized playlists. Getting one song added to a playlist with 5 million followers can literally change your life. It’s a bit of a lottery, and involves getting your song(s) in the ears of the people who curate those playlists. Of course, I would be completely thrilled and over the moon to have a crack at that kind of worldwide exposure, but looking at these stats at the moment, all I can feel is gratitude. I know artists who get 95% of their streams via editorialized playlists - largely passive listens in coffee shops etc. What these stats show in this image is that despite not having access to the bigger playlists, people are finding my music and returning to it regularly, and actively having it in their lives. I can’t tell you what this means to me. On the other end of your smart phone is a human trying to make it work - to make a life in art. Thank you. I’m on tour and people are singing my words back at me and it is so overwhelmingly affirming and powerful I can’t even handle it. I love y’all.

LAY LOW “Every single party needs a no-show” I’ve spent a lot of time at home in the last five years. Kids are like a tether. If you leave the house alone to run an errand, or go on tour, there’s a small feeling of regained independence from your youth, which is quickly overshadowed by the guilt that you’ve left the other parent exhausted and outnumbered. Chalk it up to Stockholm Syndrome, but that tether also fosters a newfound feeling of comfort in nesting. I remember what it was like to go out every night. I did that for a long time. It’s not a mystery to me how that goes. More and more, I’m content to hibernate a bit. Paul McCartney heard an early incarnation of Lay Low. It was the first thing I tracked while in Los Angeles, and as we wandered into the control room to listen back to what we’d done, he popped his head in. It was the perfect finale to what was 18 hours of suspended reality, as I’d been robbed the night prior and had spent the first half of the day scouring the dumpsters near the robbery scene for my bags and dealing with the Rampart LAPD and Canadian Consulate. Sir Paul hung out for a few minutes and listened to the rough first take, tapping his foot. I told him my older son was named Jude. I saw him an hour later in front of the studio as he waited for his driver, and he suggested trying “a low piano drone and two sweet cellos”. It was surreal. As fate would have it, we didn’t find what we were looking for in Lay Low that day and we ended up starting from scratch during a later recording session. The star of this song is a Yamaha CS-50 that finally captured the feeling in the lyrics and helped glue it all together. ---- Everything, all the time, everywhere What to say, where to go? Best of times, I’m a little unaware And who’s to say? I don’t know But I can feel my head overflow And I was tired at the get go I don’t want to wait around to fall apart So I will do my part Keep the social graces quick and painless Lay low, just let the day go I’m okay in the shadows Every single party needs a no show Why go just to say so? I’m tired of the same old So point me the way home I can breathe on the way home I don’t mean to be the quiet sullen type I’ve had my day in the sun Just not today and definitely not tonight Give my best to everyone Sometimes I feel my head overflow When all I need is us alone ‘Cause you can always fix me when I fall apart So let’s do our part Keep the social graces quick and painless Lay low, just let the day go I’m okay in the shadows Every single party needs a no show Why go just to say so? I’m tired of the same old So point me the way home I can breathe on the way home I can breathe on the way home, just be on the way home I can breathe on the way home. So point me the way home…

USA shows! If folks could help spread the word to pals in these places, it really helps so much I can’t even really articulate it. It makes a real and tangible difference in the lives of anybody out there trying to make a life in art. THANK YOU ALL.
