Better Late Than Never?

Some of my oldest friends call me "Hot Rod." No, I’m not all that into cars. It's a sarcastic reference to the fact that I tend to do things... very... very... slowly.

I like to stroll rather than stride. I'm always the last one to finish eating (unless my dad’s around). And I'm chronically late. If you're reading this, there's a good chance you've been stuck waiting for me -- you might be waiting right now! -- or will be eventually. For that I'm sorry!

And so, I guess unsurprisingly, it’s taken me about six years to record a new batch of songs. Six years?! Yeah, I couldn’t believe it’s been that long either. (WTF, time? Why the relentless marching?) But anyway, I think it was worth the wait!

I present to you my new full-band EP, The Things You Keep – produced by my friend Will Dailey (and featuring a number of his band mates, The Rivals). It’s available for download right now on Bandcamp, where you can preview it for free, and you should see it on iTunes, Spotify,, and the other big digital outlets within a few days.

Since this is the 25th century or whatever – and also because it costs a ton of money to press CDs and we still have several hundred copies of Indeed! in our basement – The Things You Keep is a digital-only release. However, if you long for the days of physical media (I don’t blame you), send me an email, and for five bucks I’ll burn you a copy and print out the art and everything.

I’m really happy with the way these songs turned out. "Story of New Orleans" absolutely came to life with a band. And it's exciting to think that "On and On," the song I sang to Gina at our wedding, could now be part of someone else's big day.

But what about you? Take a listen and let me know what you think!

Update: Due to popular demand from sentimental types like myself, physical copies of the CD are now available for $5.99. And here's where you can find "The Things You Keep" on iTunes.
