There is a wonderful new way for artists and patrons collaborate in making art happen and the whole thing is launching this week, right here out of my hometown, Seattle, WA. It's called ZIIBRA and you can learn more about it - as well as how to get involved - by clicking on the pic below. I'm excited to watch this wonderful arts community grow!
In case you haven't heard, a polar vortex moved in last week and temperatures around the globe have dropped to EXTREME and unprecedented lows. I am feeling just adventuresome enough to hop in a car, along with a talented songwriter named Aaron Lee Tasjan, and drive around ULTRA-cold Midwestern and Southern states to play my songs. Hence, I present to you the aptly named: 2014 POLAR VORTEX TOUR. Come warm us up with your presence and we will sing real pretty in return!
A HUGE thank you to all the writers, radio DJs, industry folks and music listeners who included "Swift Arrows" on your Best of 2013 year-end lists! Here are a few that have made it across my desk...
- The Seattle Times
- No Depression
- KEXP 90.3
- The Sports Network
- The Bob Rivers Show
- The Herald
- Seattle Met Magazine
And a couple honorable mentions from...
Thanks, everyone, for a GREAT 2013 and here's to an even better 2014!
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!
