Coming right up!

I get to re-visit two great spots this week: The Mission Farmer's Market and The Hotel Utah. I'll be at the Mission Market this Thursday from 4-5:30, and at The Hotel Utah on Tuesday, June 24th at 9pm.

At the Hotel Utah I'll share the evening with 2 fantastic groups: Yaquina Bay and the Delta City Ramblers. You'll hear some roots, some electric, some Americana, some twists on Americana, and you will have tons of fun.

I'm super excited for the shows and hope to see you at one, or better yet, both!

What a great night...

We had an amazing time at the Hotel Utah on January 29th for the CD Release! And lucky for us, the rain didn't stop the crowd from coming! We had a full crowd for an evening of festivity, music and a rarin' good time. Loved sharing the night with talented San Francisco beauties Essence and Anastasia too. Here are a few pictures from our set -- highlights in low resolution:






Looking forward to seeing you at the next show! More to come!

Hotel Utah CD Release January 29th!

I'm thrilled and honored to have my CD release party at the Hotel Utah on Weds, Jan 29th! We'll be playing new tunes and old, rockin' and sweet. It's a magical place, that Hotel Utah -- intimate, edgy, mysterious, warm, inviting. Sit downstairs and whoop it up with friends and strangers, or tuck yourself in at the balcony above and quietly soak up the music below. Wherever you end up, you'll have a grand ole' time.

I'll be sharing the evening with Essence and Anastasia, two lovely and talented female San Franciscan musicians. So come on out for an evening of good music, good women, good food, and good drinkin'!

Doors at 7, show at 8. Tickets are $8 in advance. $10 at the door. Hope to see you there!

it's here!

an album is the sum of so many parts...daydreams, lyrics scribbled on post-its, melodies hummed on long walks, heartbreak, love, misunderstandings, catnaps, and late nights plunking away at the piano,   singing, singing, singing. and when you have a full-time job, and are possibly even pregnant, there's a lot of things on your to-do list other than write music and record. so thank goodness for music, which, luckily, won't take no for an answer.

and, thank goodness for the amazing people who i have been lucky enough to work with. bonnie hayes, grammy-award-winning musician, is a hell of a rockstar producer -- a sweet, funny, dynamo of a woman who calls it like she sees it. great thanks to the fantastic kyle caprista on drums and mike shiono on bass, to patty espeseth who played cello on 'little rock' & 'virginia rose', and rich armstrong who played flugelhorn on 'same difference'. big ups, too, to harry green for design.

big thanks to seth, who supported my running off to the studio every week, and who continues to be an amazing and loving presence in my life. and for being such a great dad to 'lil willa.

and thanks to you, for reading this and for listening to the tunes. if you like them, please say so! write a review on cdbay or itunes, or visit my facebook page and leave a note there. i'd love to hear from you.

cheers & thanks! -k

writing is like.

writing a song is like dating. you're not necessarily sure where it's going to go. there's a spark, a glimmer of a connection. there's flirting. you have some ideas & you throw them out there. you think you like it, you're not sure. you hang out with it a little, see where it goes. you try to steer it one way, and that feels right, for a while. but you don't necessarily have control...it seems to want to go a different direction. so, depending on the connection, you follow that hunch, thinking maybe this will be it. maybe this will be the one. and sometimes it is. and sometimes it isn't. but sometimes it is.
