Very fortunate for recent press on toy organ album, especially for a project I long thought was too personal, too physical, and too emotional. Many thanks to all who helped – especially Michael Hammond, New Amsterdam, & Jill Strominger 🙏🙏
Super honored to be on Michael Harren‘s podcast! including our mutual love of Cocteau Twins and more — listen here.
Very honored to share a solo performance as part of National Sawdust’s Digital Discovery Festival!
The program consists of 5 songs exploring the creative possibilities of disability. As someone who acquired a disability nearly 20 years ago, it took about 20 years to identify as and embrace disability as an experience to be explored and enjoyed. I’m very grateful to my collaborators for these works – Marco Grosse, Jerron Herman, Maya Smira, Bryce Gildner, and Four/Ten Media, and of course to National Sawdust providing a home for artists seeking their own personal discoveries.
