Happy spring! Some exciting news and updates to report:
RADIO NEWS: Siren Song is getting good rotation on college radio, and has just charted at 183 on the RIYL chart. Feel free to call up your local college station and make a request!
I also did an interview on Fairbanks, Alaska’s KSUA last week with two nice DJs from the show Terra Firma. You can download the podcast here, or do a search for "Terra Firma" on iTunes.
TV NEWS: If you missed my recent appearance on the quirky NYC cable show Midnight Ukulele Disco, you can watch it here, along with tons of videos.
VIDEO NEWS: Some of the best videos are now posted on youtube, including my recent full-band performance in the Bindlestiff Family Cirkus and a Magnetic Fields cover. Check em out!
UKE FEST NEWS: Last night I played in the New York Uke Fest with my new backing band (Mike Dobson on drums, Bob Smith on upright bass, and Sarah Loveland on violin, hooray) and it was a big success! Getting some really talented musicians involved in this project was the best idea ever. Stay tuned for upcoming full-band gigs, and for live tracks on the MySpace coming soon.
