Many many updates, so I'll get in and get out fast.
Near the completion of my Juniper Willow Fleetwood's September Residency, I decided it would be best to cancel any remaining shows afterward and retreat to focus on writing and recording new material. I will not be playing or booking anymore shows as Juniper Willow for a while, and expect to return with new music sometime next year. Keep an ear out.
I have started playing synthesizer (and sometimes screaming) in punk band Socialist Anxiety. I will be both recording with them and playing live with them when appropriate, as often as I can.
Shape of the Crowd Volume 8, my ongoing photography zine of the Asheville D.I.Y. music scene, has begun production and is set to release later this month. The most likely rollout will be exclusive availability October 28th at Genesee Grotto and October 29th at The Rabbit Hole. Online ordering of physical copies will likely begin on November 1st, and it will be available for free digitally on this website after 100 physical copies have been moved.
Speaking of, Halloweekend Fest 2 has just been announced. Come see a huge roster of D.I.Y. bands play 3 of my favorite Asheville venues: Genesee Grotto 10/28/23, The Rabbit Hole 10/29/23, and Static Age 10/30/23.
