NEW BRANCHES ALBUM COMING 2016 + SAN GABRIEL RIVER E.P.


Friends!
I have been up to some fun projects I'd love to share with you!

_____________________________________________________________________

Firstly, my band BRANCHES is FINALLY releasing new material this year! It's been about 3 years since our last album release. To say I'm excited is an understatement. Stay updated with our release details by following us on instagram [@soundslikebranches]

Here's a few snaps of our time in the studio by Kelly Boitano (go to my friends page and look at her work!)




_____________________________________________________________________

and SECONDLY:

My good friend Joseph Bradshaw and I recorded an E.P. together, called San Gabriel River. As I begin to move in new musical directions, it's so comforting to have this project. For myself, it's a very natural return to my folk roots. It's an open, on-going project, with the both of us making a new volume whenever we have a new batch of songs, and this E.P. is the first installment.

Listen / buy / purchase below!

"I Put A Spell On You" (ft. Languages)



Friends! It's been a while since I have posted! Since releasing my solo album "Lucent", I have been hard at work with Branches working on our new album that we are recording the first two weeks of November!

I have had time, however, to squeeze in a cover of "I Put A Spell On You" just in time for Halloween. It was a collaboration with my friend Eric of Languages, and he took the song to the next level. I've known Eric for a while now and he never ceases to amaze me. It was a privilege to collaborate with him, and I hope more comes out of this pairing in the future! Check it out below!

Natural History Museum // First Fridays by KCRW



Hello! I'm happy to say, my album is ready for MASTERING! All the mixing is done and all we are waiting on is mastering and album artwork. I can't wait to release this album so I can get to working on new stuff! And I've got a few collaborators I'm excited to work with as well.

Last Friday (the 6th of February), Robbie headlined First Friday's at the Natural History Museum and it was SO fun! I hopped on stage for a few songs ("Happy" and "Long Way Down").
Robbie is heading out to tour in March and releasing a new album soon so stay posted with him! Check out some pictures and a short Instagram VIDEO.

Cheers!

"North Winds"


Friends!! I've been working away on multiple little projects here and there, and I FINISH recording my solo album THIS THURSDAY! Woo!


In between Branches and my solo work, I also was so honored to sing and collaborate with my great friend (and bandmate) Jacob Montague once again for his newest album "North Winds".  I am consistently amazed by the new sound Jacob creates. He continues to re-invent himself whilst still staying true to his musical identity.

Relevant Magazine also did a sweet pre-stream and write up  - H E R E  -  so check it out!

While you are buying "North Winds"  - H E R E - please stock up on all of Jacob's albums - H E R E - you will not be sorry one bit. Everything is also available on Itunes as well.






Now go buy all of Jacbo's music!

Love and peace,
