"Ruler Of My Heart"
PORTLAND, MARCH 2020

Written by Alain Toussaint, this song has haunted me since I heard it on the Mississippi Records release of Irma Thomas epic 1963 version, with Alain on piano. It has so many of my fave chords. Recorded deep in the covid quarantine. All proceeds will go to Black Lives Matter causes.

"The Werefox!!!"
Iceland, September 2019.

This is a collaboration with Zuzu Knew , from when I stayed and worked at her Inhouse Outerspace residency just on the edge of Reykjavik. Kristjan took us out to the countryside, as you'll see!

SILVER THREAD
Montreal, 2011


My first video collaboration with Zuzu Knew in MontrĂ©al.  Her visionary projections combine with my black-paper-cutout silhouettes to narrate the tale of a dreamer getting visions from a mysterious source.  The song is mine and features my friends Charlotte Cornfield on drums and vocals, and Kathryn Palumbo on bass.
