As always, we were incredibly honored to play live in studio on KEXP 90.3, the best radio station in the world. I also feel pretty damn lucky to have had such an amazing crew with me for this one. Click on the pic below to watch the full performance!

It's been a quiet year on the "news" front because I've been holed up at home in Seattle making a new record and focusing on my personal life, but I'm excited to announce that I'm getting back in the world and out on the road! I'll play a band show this Friday in Seattle, at my home venue, Tractor Tavern (as a part of the fabulous Macefield Music Festival!). And then next month I'll hit the road opening for the talented the Felice Brothers. See below and on the TOUR page for details. Hope to see you around the bend!
"In May of 1941, Woody Guthrie was hired by the Bonneville Power Administration to write folk songs for a film about the Columbia River. He spent that month traversing Washington State and writing an astonishing 26 songs in just 30 days. On the 75th anniversary of this historic month of song, a whole host of musicians — including Northwest-based artists Sera Cahoone, Bill Frisell and Shelby Earl — will explore Woody Guthrie’s music and influence, including the aforementioned 26 songs. Other special guests for this event include John Doe, Ian Moore, Tim Easton, Gerald Collier, Dave Alvin and former Seattle mayor Mike McGinn."
It was an honor to be the very first musical guest on "The Scott Carty Party," a new show hosted by my talented pal Scott Carty featuring "a cocktail, a conversation and a concert." Episode 1, featuring Chef Ethan Stowell, Eric Beindorff of Collingwood Whiskey, Scott, and myself, is now LIVE on the Youtubes!

I have the unique honor and privilege of playing a solo set at Safeco Field tonight for "Do206 Night" right before our beloved home team, The Seattle Mariners, go head to head with the San Diego Padres. What an trip! Think I can finally convince Fernando Rodney that "Swift Arrows" should be his theme song? :)

WE ARE SO HONORED to be a part of the 2013 Seattle Musicians for Children’s Hospital (SMooCH) sponsored by KEXP and Sub Pop. On Saturday, December 14th, a stellar lineup of northwest acts will again donate performances to raise funds for Seattle Children’s with a special concert and auction at Showbox at the Market.
Shelby Earl The Lonely Forest The Helio Sequence Allen Stone AND JUST ANNOUNCED: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis!!!
The event is now officially SOLD OUT, but those who can’t attend and still want to support the cause are encouraged to make a donation at Seattle Children’s instead of buying tickets.
What an AMAZING way to end the year!
Thanks for a KILLER time, NYC!
The fine folks over at Lively recorded our Sept. 4th show at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle and for just $4.99 you can download high quality recording of the entire show, which includes an impromptu appearance by Burn the Boats-producer John Roderick singing with me on "At the Start." Learn more about Lively and download the show here...
There's so much to say about this night and yet so little NEEDS to be said. It will be one of good tunes, good pals, good brews and a WHOLE lot of love. We will be celebrating the last show for the amazing Rusty Willoughby and Rachel Flotard of Cobirds Unite before they head off to Austin for SXSW (they will also be joined by Bloodshot Rec's Maggie Bjorklund on pedal steel!), plus the coming out party for Shelby Earl (+band)'s d...ebut solo album, Burn The Boats (produced by John Roderick!), and another night of general awesomeness for Ballard's own Jason Dodson (of the Maldives) and Friends.
Buy tickets HERE (they're selling fast, get them now!)

I had the pleasure of opening for the one and only Loudon Wainwright (yes, he's the papa of Rufus and Martha!) at the beautiful Triple Door in Seattle on January 23rd. Mike and Anna-Lisa (of Hannalee) and I had a spectacular time playing for the sold-out crowd and then sitting back to enjoy Loudon's brilliant set. He is truly a master! I learned a lot from him. Thanks all for a great night!
