I'm sitting in a book pub in Portland enjoying some french fries, getting ready to go and hang out with my friend's dog. Super grateful to be able to do what I do with the people I love.

This upcoming month is a big one, as I'm getting ready to move down south to Los Angeles, the biggest city I've lived in by a long shot. I'll be spending a bunch of time down there this month looking for a place and would love to meet up with all my LA friends! Looking forward to getting some sun and hearing some incredible music.

Over this past month, I've had a bunch of great times, working with new friends and playing some incredible shows. Going to be releasing an album of tracks I've made on the PO33 pretty soon, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, check out the video from Banana Stand Media of Korgy and Bass's release show for 'Remote'! Really proud of how this all turned out and really loved making music with these dudes.

Here's some of what I've been listening to and learning recently:

Pedrito Martinez - Musica: My brother in law introduced me to this dude and he is ridiculous! Some incredible Cuban music from an insanely skilled quartet.
Sister Sledge - Thinking Of You: Chic's Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers with their ridiculous production and funky grooves. Bass players, don't miss, but everybody can dig this.
Martha Stax - Your Style: Portland group that my buddy Nicole McCabe is in. Love the sound of this album, and the songwriting is so simple in the best way. Groove ONLY and kitschy silly lyrics and sounds to boot.

These are a few of the gigs I've got coming up this month:
8/1: Deep Happening w/ Korgy and Bass - Portland, OR
8/2: Noah Simpson at Teutonic Winery - Portland, OR
8/4: 3 Leg Tosro at Millenium Park - Lake Oswego, OR
8/31: Private Event w/ 3 Leg Torso
