Feeling a bit camera shy


I write indie pop songs for the folk world. Perform them with roughly-carved emotion. Then cover them in layers of sound collage and bluegrass instrumentation.

Growing up in Wisconsin as the son of a Scottish-born mother, I started writing songs on the acoustic guitar in elementary school. That soon gave way to hundreds of hours spent recording four-track pop symphonies and learning the accordion, bagpipes, and euphonium.

I was a member of a funky ska band in New Hampshire, took third place in the 2003 Rockygrass dobro contest, and led a horn-filled jam band in Colorado. Doesn't sound very "folky", eh? That's the point.

Look: too many singer-songwriters listen to the same music, read the same books, write the same songs. I prefer to be on the outside, peeking in, with my headphones blasting John Zorn and the Fiery Furnaces.
