Through a Window, was recorded at Dacha Studio and came out in April, 2012!

The cover art and design (pictured below)  is by Tyler Norman.

Click on the “thistle and thorns” tab above to learn about my band and our tour of the Midwest during Earth Week this spring, April 11th – 27th with the Beehive Collective!

Warm, lush and sometimes haunting sounds surround the songwriting and solo voice in this recording. With the contributions of so many talented musicians, it is a solid rock gem that will last through time. Please consider a donation to my kickstarter campaign to help it take material form for our Earth Week tour coming up! The kickstarter campaign is a way to pre-order the album, to make sure you get a copy, and help get it out there into the world as well.

I have a studio-recorded album with awesome art by Kat Beyer from 2008. Several Madison musicians contribute to the album and it sounds amazing due to the engineering and production talents of Matthew Sanborn. Click on this box to buy Animal Dreams!
