Click flyer to zoom in for detailsI just finished making the flyer for the next Song Story Live! It’s going to be a great night of stories and songs. And if you become a “Patron” on Song Story’s Patreon page, you can even get free tickets.

Also, check out this week’s latest episode, which was told on stage by James Dalton at the last Song Story Live!. James is a singer/songwriter and DIY touring expert on tour in Europe this month, but he also played harmonica and mandolin on my album, Disconnect, on songs like “Six Weeks in Jersey,” and “Autumn in LA.”

I’d love to hear what you think in the comments section, below. Take a look at SongStoryShow.org and “follow” and “like” Song Story on
SoundCloud, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Song Story logoI’ve never danced so much while editing a segment. If you don’t get up a dance while listening to Nicole Atkins’s, “Girl You Look Amazing,” you may not have feet. After David Byrne came to her in a dream with the song’s hook, Nicole went to Sweden to brake down the walls of her own style and made an after-hours disco rock album that’s truly inspired.

Also, I’ve cemented the next Song Story Live!, which will be June 17, at The Saint. Check out the details in the sidebar to your right.

I’d love to hear what you think in the comments section, below.

Pledge Prize for Xenia Sky's new album

See the Facebook event: http://www.facebook.com/events/228502530684496

One of my favorite people, Xenia Sky, crowd-funded her forthcoming album on PledgeMusic.com. One of the prizes brackets was a private concert, which the pledger has offered to make public and share, so I will be joining her to play a set of my original songs as well, along with Lance Greene, The May Darlings, and Cat London.

If you haven't contributed to Xenia's new album, you still can at pledgemusic.com/projects/xeniasky.

This event is a potluck, so please bring a dish of something.

Song Story logoI’ve been quietly working on this project for a while, and it’s finally beginning to poke its head out in public. I’m creating and hosting a podcast called “Song Story,” which features songwriters telling the true stories behind their original songs. The Storytelling Night at The Saint that I hosted last week was a big step in the process of bringing the show to life.

The first season will be 13 episodes, each with 3-4 segments, each about 8-10 minutes long. I’m learning the publishing process, so I’ve created a sample segment to be the guinea pig. This first sneak peek features the story behind and alive performance of my song, “Little Love Notes,” which will be on my forthcoming new album.

This segment was recorded live, at The Saint, though the full eventual show will feature both live and pre-recorded interview segments. I hope you enjoy it and find Song Story on social media everywhere, @SongStoryShow.

I can’t be more excited for today’s The Jonathan Coulton Sing-Along (NOT featuring Jonathan Coulton). Together with , TV’s Adam, Nathan Dickinson, and Bob Denson, we’re going to be playing through 29 JoCo songs, hopefully with a room full of JoCo fans singing along.
