This song, Carry Me Home, is one of my many new songs written in 2020 while quarantining, trying to make the most of a life with restricted socialization. The song was written off the cuff, just spit, which is not something I often do. The lyrics just came out, and I think you can feel it in the song, just so natural feeling. Enjoy!
Oh, and here’s a version on a canoe while out camping this past summer…
Yes, this has indeed been a strange time in our world. I’ve been keeping sequestered away in my tower here in Rochester. It’s been a difficult time for so many of us. I hope you are doing ok… not feeling too separated from the people you care about.
I’ve been working for over 15 years on a film called Moon Shaped Head Girl. It’s a film about transformation based on a long piece of music and lyrics I wrote during my long convalescence after a life threatening illness. The visuals are performed by puppets… large ones, hand puppets and 2D animated ones.
I’m happy to say I’ve just finally finished scoring the instrumental parts for the whole feature length film. I’ve released this on Patreon which you can sign up for HERE.

You can find the full score. the synopsis, storyboard and audio examples on my Patreon…
Besides that, I’ve been doing a bunch of online live streams, creating new songs and music videos… hanging with my family and doing work on Whenland, a small project in Naples, NY which I started a few years ago where we focus on nature conservancy, natural building, tiny house work and the start of farming and ancient plant preservation. I’ll be making some videos in the coming months so you can see some of the progress in this project.
Multibird released our album in January. We had planned to tour a bunch this year, but life does often tell us differently. If you’d like to spread the word please do!
Available digitally, on CD and red Vinyl here.
best wishes friends,
Hello my lovelies!
I’m happy to announce a new video for the song Thank You Computer by friend and fan in England, Luke Woolley of Woolley Films. Luke reached out to me just a few weeks before Multibird left on our 5 week European tour asking if he could make a video for us, and of course I said yes! I enjoyed the Lo-Fi video he made for Jeffrey Lewis, and I have a plan to make a video for every song on this new album as a sort of challenge to myself to focus a bit more on promotion (sometimes not my favorite thing to do). We very quickly set up a camera in our usual rehearsal space, Meddlesome Lab (which is also a house concert venue) and got weird for the camera. Luke took that and did his thing… Thanks a ton to Luke and everyone else involved in the record!
I still am fully planning on doing a tour diary sort of post on here in the next week or so, still trying to catch up with everything after being away from home for 5 weeks, plus hanging with my kids! It was an incredible tour. I’m super happy we did it. Everyone in the band did such an amazing job, we all got along really well and made it to every show!
ok, I’ll be back in a week with some more, but here are a few photos at least!!
