The rock of my live band the last several years and an incredible creative force.
My maestro, my violist, and the first person I ever played live with when I turned solo.
My bassist, my friend, and the person I am most likely to spread nefarious and unfounded rumors about.
She brought her creepy violin loops and even creepier sense of humor (a perfect fit) to the band mid-way through the year and had us all wondering how we’d ever played without her. Check out her project e.ravenscraft.
My good friend and incredible songwriter. Someone I’ve admired for more than half a decade who I FINALLY got a chance to work with at my last show of the year at Barboza. I really hope we do a lot more of it in 2019.
Designer of my entire visual presentation. John’s vision for my music and how it’s represented live and in my videos continues to inspire and inform me. Sometimes I think they understand what I do better than I do. Check out all their work.
The star of She Lives on the Astral Plane and someone I grew a fondness and respect for immediately. Their dedication to their performance made everyone’s life easy. Not only that, they’re a powerhouse actor and songwriter that you really need to learn more about right now.
Ryan Alexander Davis
Another person I met this year that instantly won my respect. Ryan was the cinematographer on She Lives on the Astral Plane and got shots I could never have imagined when we were on set.
We spent 1 day every week mixing Astral Plane which totaled more than 40 hours of work. Richie produced the track, added a string arrangement and was willing to get as weird and turn knobs for as long as it took to get things just right. He is also the brain of Richie Dagger’s Crime, who you need to listen to now.
He set the tone with his amazing guitar and synth parts on Astral Plane. Andy has been someone I’ve looked up to as a songwriter and producer for years. Teaming with him and Richie was a dream come true. Check out Black Giraffe.
The producer of my next several releases, someone with great patience and an incredible ear.. Can’t wait to share what we’re working on! Check out his new release, TRUE BLVRS.
Everyone who came out to shows, shared my single and video, supported me on Patreon, took a minute to tell me what my music means to you…you make all the work that goes in to this lifestyle worth it. Those moments of shared experience, of intense conversation are what keep me fresh and makes this so much fun.
