I can see the Christmas lights going up all over town, and I keep forgetting we need to get on putting ours up as well. There's a gigantic pile of leaves in my front (and back) yard that I am going to get to have to tackle soon. There's endless sorting of receipts from months on the road, and a backlog of emails that I find rather daunting.
But I am grateful for this list of things to do. It represents a full life, a life of adundance, and as we get closer to the end of this weird, upside-down year, I am reminded once again how lucky I am to be playing music for all of you. Thanks for listening.
I have 2 more shows before we wrap up for the year and I'm super excited about both of them. Hope to see some of you out and about this weekend!

If you're still with me (hi!) we're doing lots of promos this month.
Until Dec 20, if you buy "Foxhole Prayers" as digital download, CD, or vinyl, I'll send you a free download of my Christmas album in its entirety. If you already bought it at a show this year, just email me! I'm happy to send share the little Christmas album that could with everyone who wants to hear it. :)
Also: during the month of December, if you buy "Foxhole Prayers" on vinyl, for only $7 more (covers the addt'l shipping costs) I'll include the vinyl of "The Burden of Unshakeable Proof." Just adjust the price at checkout and leave me a note.
Finally, if you buy any tees, whether on Bandcamp or Threadless, I'll send you a download of the Christmas album. You can find 2 designs here on Bandcamp and six new designs at the Threadless store, which is offering free shipping through December 12.
have a great weekend!
also, I came home to a really lovely article in Guide Live about "Foxhole Prayers" and my career as a songwriter. If you've got a moment to check it out, you can find it here.
