May 2019 Newsletter



Big news: I have shirts now!  They're comfy cotton unisex t-shirts ranging in sizes S through XXL.  I'll have them with me at all of my upcoming shows, but if you simply can't wait I'm pleased to say you can now purchase them (and physical copies of my albums) ONLINE in my digital store.  There's a limited amount of each size, so get them while you can!

The peacock feather design is by the talented Betsy Heron and the shirts were screen printed in Greenfield, MA by Moonlight Designs.  These two are so good at what they do.  Take a gander at their work.

Atwood's Summer Sunday Residency

Residency rehearsals are underway and -- folks -- things are sounding SO good.  Allow me introduce the June band to you: I am excited to be working with one of my absolute favorite cellists, my friend and former CanvaSounds collaborator Eden Rayz. Drum set and percussion parts are being expertly crafted by Julian Loida.  And, the man of many musical hats (he engineered AND played on Anything Worth Doing), Michael Siegel, is once again lending his stalwart bass playing to my music.  There are going to be new songs, old songs with new arrangements, and some (hopefully) surprising covers.

There may be three shows in all, but you'll only have once chance to catch each night's unique magic.

New "Bred In The Bone" Video

I recorded a new, live version of my song "Bred In The Bone" with John Faraone in one of the oldest houses in Pawtucket, Rhode Island!  Pretty sure Wes Anderson is filming his next movie there.  Watch what came of it here.


Saturday, 6.01 I'll be playing solo, opening for the fabulous Mark Erelli at The Barn in Egremont, MA.  Show begins at 8pm sharp.

Thursday, 6.13 I'm going to be involved in the inaugural episode of a new live performance series that is part variety show, part old-timey radio show taking place in AERONAUT Allston's beer garden.  Best part is, it's being hosted by PRX and will be turned into a podcast that you'll be able to stream whenever you'd like!  Details are still being ironed out, but I can tell you it's a FREE show!  Stay tuned for more details.
