Very excited for my first ever Solo tour to the UK and Europe! A little freaked out as I don't have all the details set in stone for some of the trip. But, music and adventure go hand-in-hand! Ready or not, here I come!
I hope this finds you well!
It’s been quite a while since I’ve attempted to update you on my whereabouts/goings-on and what not.
For starters, I’d like to alert you to a handful of concerts I have coming up:
I hope to see you out there somewhere!Secondly, I’ve been working hard this year to bring you some newly recorded music!
Earlier this Summer, I announced a new record that was produced by my friends Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis. I’m teaming up with the good folks over at Team Love Records once more to bring you the fruits of our writing and recording from ARC Studios in Omaha, Nebraska this past summer.
“ENDED UP MAKING LOVE” will be available March 25th 2016. Please be on the lookout for pre-order info and singles towards the beginning of the new year. I can’t wait to share!
I'll also be finishing an EP named "Beginner’s Guide" towards the end of this month with the help of my good friend and producer Michael Allen. This will feature new songs and a host of my talented friends. We plan to release this on our own shortly after the holidays.
That’s all for now. Thank you for reading and for your interest.

I just learned where Beirut is. It's on the west side of Lebanon and touches the Mediterranean Sea. If you widen your view on a map, it looks as though you can throw a stone with your weak hand and hit Cyprus, or Syria, or Israel, or Jordan, or Turkey.
There appears to be a section of a highway that circles the city that's named Paris in the AUB 'hood there.
Most of my thoughts last night were with the people of Paris, France. Today, my scope has widened as I'm saddened by the horrific events that have take over the last few days in both Beirut and Paris. I'm thinking about the people of Beirut, and the people of Paris who are suffering now. I'm thinking about the people who are suffering here in The United States of America for the same reasons people are suffering there. My thoughts are with people who are suffering everywhere for reasons I cannot understand.
Thursday night, a man taught me that humans are all made up of 99.9 (some odd number) percent of the same DNA. We're a family. We're acting like it.
To my brothers and sisters around the globe, I care about you and your well being. I will not harm you intentionally. I realize that I may unknowingly cause you harm by some of my actions, my decisions, the things I purchase, the way I vote, the way I live. Please forgive me. I am selfish.
I don't throw out words such as "Light" and "Peace." These words, to me, are loaded just as the weapons used to bring about such ideas.
I'm sending out a warm, mental embrace - a hug if you will - to my human family.
I'll repeat Theodore Roosevelt's words: "Walk soft, and carry a cup of water, and a bowl of rice."
Greetings from my new home in Omaha, Nebraska. Happy Fall!
It's ben a little over a month since I made the long drive from Brooklyn, NY.
I'm enjoying myself out here so far! I'm working on finishing another record, and look forward to sharing the songs with you as soon as possible!
Please stay tuned!
Thanks for checking in.

I'm excited to be making a new record with my band out in Omaha May 2015 with my super talented friends Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis co-producing the record.
Stay tuned, as we hope to be documenting that process beyond the actual record i.e. perhaps some photos and behind-the-scenes video. I hope you'll join me on this exciting journey!
Thanks for your attention!
Love and Gratitude,
On a cold, rainy day in Buffalo, Once Took A Day was shot.
As winter is upon us again and the weirdness continuing with the
planet and is inhabitants, we thought now was the perfect time
to share with you all.
The Band: Conor Oberst, Jonathan Wilson (guitar/voice), Miwi (Bass Guitar/Voice), Dan Horn (Pedal Steel Guitar), Nathaniel Walcott (Keys), Cully Symington (Drums)
