Hello 2015. I've been holding off on this exciting announcement:
A book I've been working on for the last five years will be published late February 2015 by the wonderful press Good Cop / Bad Cop out of New London, CT. It's called "Lucy." It's a short book, about 30 pages of poetry and short prose. The book is about a girl named Lucy and her Uncle Horace. It's amazing how much slower this sort of writing comes to me compared to songwriting, but it seems to come from a different part of my brain. I've worked on this book more meticulously than any project I've ever worked on, I think. Maybe it's a little embarrassing that a 30 page book took five years to write, but maybe "humbling" is a more appropriate word. In any case, a final release date will be announced soon and there will be some readings and events in various parts of Connecticut. The first of which, is on January 31st at The Telegraph record store in New London, CT. I'll be reading a few pieces from the book and playing a few songs as part of a Good Cop / Bad Cop showcase. More details on that will come soon.
In other news, I've posted a few paintings and drawings on the Mercy Choir/Dead Language Records bandcamp page. Please consider buying a piece or two.
