Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame

Thank you to Earshot Jazz and everyone who voted me into the Seattle Jazz Hall of Fame!

I’m deeply honored to join the other musical illuminaries, to bring a fresh perspective to this historic musical form.

After a tour-heavy 7 months, I’m back in Seattle for the summer, enjoying the remnants of my soul filtering back in.

If you’d like to catch up on my recent travels up and down the West Coast, throughout Europe, Eastern Europe and the Balkans, please check out my photos on Flickr.


Days are shorter and nights are darker now, after a year of intense travel and border crossings on many continents, lots of music, and eternal change.  Today I hand-fed and sang with our chickens.  I’ve moved to a new place, which I’m starting to call home.

Parlando del diavolo (speaking of the devil), yesterday Kultur Shock released HOME, the first video from our new album IX, created by our drummer Chris Stromquist.  Enjoy.
