Come to the Living Room this Thursday! My band’s playing at 9 and we’re followed by my talented friends Jules and the Jinks. It’s a free show and it’ll be a fun night.
New Orleans was amazing!! I had so much fun singing at the NOLA Bushwick Book Club with new friend, Michael Lentz on guitar, and Susan Hwang on drums. New Orleans is such a cool, otherworldly city. I really like spending time there. Here’s a picture I took Saturday night off of Royal Street.
My band’s next show is Thursday, April 23rd at 9pm at The Living Room. We’re sharing the bill with my friends Jules and the Jinks, who are playing right after us. It’s going to be a fun night and I’d love to see you there.
This weekend I’m traveling down to New Orleans with Bushwick Book Club founder, Susan Hwang, to perform with the New Orleans branch of BBC. I couldn’t be more excited. New Orleans is one of my favorite cities AND we’re all writing songs inspired by one of my favorite playwrights, Tennessee Williams (the others are Eugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller in case you’re curious). As it happens, I wrote my Tennessee Williams song years ago — the song “Tennessee” off The Sky Road was inspired by Suddenly Last Summer, Orpheus Descending and A Streetcar Named Desire.
If you’re in NOLA next Friday, the 27th, come to Siberia at 7pm for the show.
I’ve been listening to the Pretenders a lot lately. Here’s one song I love.
I’m participating in this Sunday’s Bushwick Book Club show at the Bowery Poetry Club at 1pm. This month, we’re focusing on the poetry of Bob Holman, poet, endangered language activist, founder of The Bowery Poetry Club and creator of the PBS series, “Language Matters.” We’ll also be celebrating his birthday! Come join us Sunday at the Bowery Poetry Club at 1pm.
And here’s another picture from our show at Tom Clark’s Treehouse last December.
I’m in the middle of recording my best songs from my participation in the Bushwick Book Club. The Bushwick Book Club is the inspired creation of my friend, Susan Hwang. It’s a rotating collective of songwriters who read the same book every month, write a song about it and then perform these songs monthly at a public show. I’ve participated in BBC pretty frequently for the past year or so.
The songs I’m recording are inspired by such books as The Shining, Julia Child’s The Art of French Cooking, and The Phantom Tollbooth. I’m making this EP at Room 17 with collaborators John Kengla, Rob Heath and producer, Joe Rogers. It sounds really different from my regular music and I’m excited to share it with you eventually….
Also, this month I will briefly come out of retirement as an actress, to appear in my friend Benjamin Cartel’s video for a beautiful song of his.
PS Here’s one more picture from our show at Sundance Film Festival last month.

I’ve put together a great line up at Bait and Tackle this Friday, February 20th. My friend Meredith Meyer will kick things off around 8 with an acoustic set, followed by two great bands, Leslie Paris Viking and Great Lakes! My band plays last around 10:45pm. It’ll be a great night of music and it’s free! So, come down to Red Hook Bait and Tackle next Friday!
Here’s a picture of the Rocky Mountains taken out the window of the plane on my flight home from Utah a couple weeks ago.
And here’s a picture of the beautiful Utah sunrise the morning of the show. The landscape out there is stunning.
I’m so excited to be performing at SundanceTV HQ during the Sundance Film Festival as part of their live concert series. The guys and I will be playing a stripped down acoustic set on January 24th at 5pm at the SundanceTV HQ at 268 Main Street in Park City, Utah. The doors open at 4 and the show starts around 5. If you plan on attending, please RSVP to the link on the flyer below.
Happy holidays everyone!
My band’s playing our first show of 2015 at The Living Room at its new space over in Williamsburg on January 15th at 8pm.
I think January 15th still counts as the holiday season so we’ll be playing that brand new Christmas song (“Misfits Christmas”) we tried out at Bait and Tackle a couple weeks ago, as well as all the other hits
Come hang out at the new Living Room!
Jason Loughlin on guitar, John Kengla on bass, Rob Heath on drums, and special guest Andrea Longato on acoustic guitar.
Here’s a picture of me, John Kengla and Jason Loughlin (Rob Heath is behind me) at the Treehouse show a couple weeks ago.
Happy holidays and I’d love to see you January 15th at the Living Room!
Thanks so much to everyone who came to the Treehouse the other night and to Tom Clark (and Peg Simone!) for asking us to play. What a fun night!
This Friday, we’re playing at my favorite place in Red Hook, Bait and Tackle at 8:30. We’re sharing the bill with the super-talented Matt Keating (9:30) and Benjamin Cartel (10:30). It’s gonna be a great night of music and I’d love to see you there.
PS Here’s a picture of us playing at Bait and Tackle earlier this year.
