A new project — acoustic duo with fellow Austinite Matt Read

Matt Read and I recorded an album of six original pieces, loosely based on an old west theme and featuring our improvising. There are accompanying videos for each tune, filmed by my wife Erin and our friend and photographer Collete Presley, and we’ll be releasing one a week until the album is released on Jan 10, 2017. You can pre-order it now at, enjoy!


Guitar Note Atlas is out!

So excited to get this thing into the world. Look at what I made!

It’s now available in the Apple App Store

Thanks to my wife Erin for essential art direction and Elena Boyd who developed the app for iOS.

New Snarky Puppy video

Mike just posted this a couple of days ago, it’s the first track off of the upcoming live cd/dvd project that we recorded last December in Brooklyn. You can see me poke my head out for a second amongst the 20-odd musicians.

So Mike is starting a record label called groundUp that will be a subsidiary of the label Snarky Puppy is currently on, Ropeadope, which is pretty exciting! The big label kickoff/cd release show is happening in NYC in four days, and I am sadly missing it. …Anyone want to buy me and Erin plane tickets? Majorly good karma.
