I’m excited to be co-producing two upcoming Bushwick Book Club shows with Susan Hwang, in NYC and LA, to celebrate the release of Jonathan Ames’ new book, You Were Never Really Here (a movie based on the book, starring Joaquin Phoenix and directed by Lynne Ramsay, will also be released in early April).
I’ll be writing and performing a new song at both shows AND making my dance debut at the NYC show in a piece choreographed by Nicola Yvette Hughes.
Jonathan Ames will be giving readings and signing books (which will be on sale) at both of these shows!
The New York show is happening on March 29th at Mirror in the Woods and you can purchase tickets here.
The LA show is happening on April 28th at the Last Bookstore and tickets can be purchased here.
Also on the horizon, I’m releasing a new album, The Fastness, in June! Below is the album cover. I took the photo in Iceland last year. Cover design by Scott MX Turner.
The album was recorded last summer at Room 17. Produced by Joe Rogers with Kirk Schoenherr on guitar, John Kengla on bass, Rob Heath on drums, Susan Hwang, Leslie Graves and Julie DeLano on harmonies and me on the harmonium (and songwriting and singing). I’m excited about it. More details coming soon…!
And here’s a little clip of Benjamin Cartel and me singing Tom Petty’s beautiful, gem of a song, Insider. Ben and I will be recording this song and a few other covers this summer. Watch this space!
