New Song “Boyfriend” & Fall US/Canada Tour Presale

My new song “Boyfriend” is out today, just in time for summer! Click HERE to buy or stream it now!

This song came very naturally and quickly as I was writing with longtime collaborator Martin Craft and the brilliant Liam Howe. It was interesting to be laying almost country like lyrics, reflecting my farmlife in Iowa, atop a very sultry, smooth and what I think is a pretty hip track! I hope people can appreciate a bit of a different sonic quality from me as I’m working on an album that will be a bit of a fresh, new sound

I’m also announcing some new solo US/Canada fall tour dates, the PRESALE (no code needed) will be Wednesday, June 21 @ 10am local time via lissie.com/gigs. Public tickets will go on sale this Friday, June 23. Also check lissie.com/gigs for all upcoming tour dates!

Live at Union Chapel – Out Now!

Playing live is my favorite part of being a musician. Being able to capture and share the energy of the acoustic solo performance and crowd in a space like Union Chapel is exciting!

New Video for Wild West

The brilliant Talain Rayne directed my latest video for Wild West! He found the 4 coolest brothers to shoot the footage themselves which he edited into this beautiful piece. I initially had no idea what to expect and I am in love with how it turned out! Wild West is a song about reclaiming ones life & path, and this video feels like it’s recapturing a sort of innocent joy while being fierce & rebellious!

US Tour with Skrizzly Adams!

Hope to see you at one of my upcoming US tour dates! Skrizzly Adams will not only be the support act but his band will also be my band! This is a bit of an experiment for me, since I moved back to Iowa & am now an independent artist! This is a creative way to represent the album while also getting to play with a great group of guys & musicians! Get your tickets!
