artichoke tonight

Tonight I have a 30 minute gig at the Artichoke Music coffee house on Hawthorne Street in Portland, 8 PM. I'll be joined by my good friends David Peyton on flute, Leslie Logan on violin, and my lovely, faithful wife Claire singing harmonies and making miscellaneous weird noises.

Right now I'm feeling very insecure about my singing voice- a great disconnect between the emotion behind my songs and what seems to come out when I try to perform them. I'm not fishing for complements here, just trying to give an honest description of where I'm at. Tonight I hope to lay low, work with the microphone and try to get out of my self a little, into the love (make love not art).

If you are local and you are free, please come and hear us, and the other fine musicians who will undoubtedly be performing at this fine venue.


  1. one of the strongest impressions i have about your singing voice is the amazing capability it has to carry emotion. tim and i recently discussed this when listening to an old recording of *little man*

  2. wish i could be there tonight, please try to schedule a show sometime between July 14th and 28. I hope to be back in PDX then.
