  • Black lives matter.

This moment is not about me, or white people in general (other than our complicity in a racist system). So I post as a voice of support, and with a note to my white friends/followers: we must be actively anti-racist. We must listen to black leaders, friends, communities, and SUPPORT them. We are beneficiaries of a system of white supremacy, and it’s not enough to “be embarrassed” by it. We must fight against it. Donate if you can. Sign petitions (blacklivesmatter.com). Listen, and do our own research. I’m far from perfect at this. But I am trying (and reading) and learning to support and be better. We have to. #blacklivesmatter #endpolicebrutality

I’ve written a lot of music on this guitar. Most of it not so great. A lot of it personal, never heard by anyone outside of me and Lilly. But this is was probably the most meaningful thing I wrote on this guy. 
I sold my guitar today. Which shouldn’t necessarily be a big deal.  But it definitely feels like one. Because we pour our hearts into things, especially when they can help us make sense of the world, of our lives. This comes as part of another big change in my life: in the midst of a world in upheaval, we are moving across the country. It’s hard to leave a city that I love so much (though we WILL be back), and it’s hard to part with a guitar that has held so many different things for me. 
Anyway, here is Real and Simple played on my last day with this guitar.
Be well.

  • Oh to be in Times Square 
Singing with wispy hair. ☀️ But while we stay inside, @timessquarenyc is doing live steamed concerts from your home. And I am writing a new song specifically for this competition thing #citysongs . So are a bunch of outrageously talented songwriters and performers. Tune in!

  • I’ve sung this mashup a few times in the last 5+ years of living here, but it feels more appropriate than ever as a means to express my love, sadness and pride for this beautiful city. New York, I Love You. ‘New York I Love You, But You’re Bringing Me Down’ by LCD Soundsystem
‘New York’ by St. Vincent

  • Wrote a little @contagious_closet_dramas (after @nadjameowlena invited me). Follow them for some good play-reads during your inside time. 
This is about two lobsters 🦞 🦞

  • We moved to New York 5.5 years ago. Not a traditional milestone but like... not NOT a milestone. Anyway, found this picture.
