A Million Little Pieces

2012 ArtPrize Entry

Songs About Women is my latest album of acoustic pop music about, well, Women. These muses have had tremendous impact on my life and the easiest way for me to express the exact impact they have had on me and my life is through sonic composition. What I've always found so interesting is that when a muse shows up, your immediate attention is required. There is no other option...you must stop whatever you are doing, eating, or washing. Sleep? Forget about it, when the muse shows up clamoring at your door at 3am and your are dog tired, you have to open the door...because after a while the neighbors are gonna start to complain and ask you why you didn't just let her in...she is a muse after all, not some miscreant. Or maybe that's exactly why you let her in. Each song on Songs About Women tells my story about my interaction and observation of each female muse. They have inspired me to do my best to sonically reproduce the concentration of emotion I feel when around these women.

Venue & Connection Information

I am very portable. I can play in very small, intimate venues with just my acoustic guitar and voice, and I also have a portable amplification system that can run off normal electricity. I also have battery power for those situations where there is no AC power available. I enjoy being this electrically flexible! I cannot express enough how excited I am to return to Grand Rapids, I grew up across the lake in Illinois and I always feel like I'm home amongst Michiganders.

Venue Considerations
  • Special Lighting needed: No
  • Internet needed: No
  • Indoor Space needed: No
  • Outdoor Space needed: No
  • Audio/Video needed: No
  • Electrical needed: Yes
