Here's a lyric video for my song "24 Hour Blues Cycle" from my 2019 album Tizzy, available digitally now wherever you get your music. This song needs a lyric video more than most because it's all about the lyrics in this song and there are a lot of them. Video by @Rob Fitzgerald

The walrus and the blackbird from my first novel The Reminders. The painting appears in the book and now on my wall—a personal reminder. . #theremindersbook #ospróseoscontrasdenuncaesquecer #lalistadellecosechenondimenticheròmai #sydgavinjohnlennonetmoi #fordeleogulempervedathuske

I’ve never thrown back on a Thursday...until now. Throwing back ten years to me in the studio recording “Looking For A Feeling You Never Knew You Needed.” Now I know what it feels like to throw back. Are you supposed to feel wistful?

I just found this on my computer. It's a radio broadcast from 2007. Apparently listeners voted on what song they wanted to hear and my fans (you) made me look good. My song "This Ship's Going Down" got the most votes ever recorded and as a result this radio station in NJ started playing my song regularly. Listening to this made me smile for so many reasons. I listened to this station a ton when I was growing up (106.3FM) and getting to hear my song on it was a thrill. At the time, I had recently parted ways with Epic Records and was in the process of trying to rebuild my career from the ground up with the independent release of a new album called Sunlight Searchparty. To release this new music that I felt was the truest version of me and to have you guys back me up with love and support (and votes). Wow. Thank you. Take a listen:

I contributed an unreleased song called "Chelsea" to the new Rock Against Hate compilation. I recorded it in 2014 and planned to include it on my album The Good Names Are Taken. A $10 donation gets you my song plus 39 others. All money made from Rock Against Hate Vol. 3 goes directly to Kids In Need Of Defense (KIND). KIND helps protect the basic human rights of refugee and immigrant children in the United States, many of whom come to escape violence and persecution. Hear "Chelsea" at the link below:

I am (clearly) not a drummer. But I played drums all over my new album Tizzy. When you know the sound you’re looking for, it’s sometimes easiest to just do it yourself—poorly. This tune is called “Take It All To Heart”. . Jason Kronick played proper drums on three tunes on Tizzy. And this kit above was left behind by my longtime drummer Eric Micali when he moved to Florida (Do you want these drums back, Eric? Too late 😉).

How about an all request Facebook Live show? Name one song that you'd like me to play. Any song from my catalog. I'll try to honor all requests. A full song list can be found at One song per person. Date to be announced.

Goodbye New Zealand. You’ve been great.

Here's a new interpretation of my song "Tenderest" from last week's show. I enjoy how we do it live and hope you do, too.

Greetings from New Zealand. I’m here for the Auckland Writers Festival to talk about DEH & The Reminders & to hopefully meet Jeff Tweedy. I may post more than usual while I’m here because I’m alone & I’m doing what alone people do, reaching out into the void. Or, if I lose my mojo & crawl into a hole—because “every time I leave my girl(s) I always get so sad”—this could be my last post. But I’ve got hope that it’ll be unabashed sharing like normal folk do. P. S. That’s the Sky Tower behind me.

Here's a solo acoustic rendition of "Every Time I Leave The Girl." If you live nearby, come to the show tomorrow and hear us do it as a band. Unfortunately, my daughter won't be there, but there will be another female guest to sing along with me. Show is Friday, May 10 at FM Restaurant Bar and Lounge in Jersey City, NJ with the Milwaukees and Adam Streicher. Don't miss it!
