July News

The “Sing Out for Single Payer Road Show” is about to begin! Starting July 2nd, I’m going on the road from San Diego, CA to Bellingham, WA. I’ll travel with folk singer Anne Feeney on a mission to encourage senators, representatives, and “we, the people” to work for universal healthcare across our nation. We’ve got twenty-five shows in twenty-six days! It will be tireless. But we’ve got a cast of about 40 other musicians and more concerned citizens joining us along the way.

You can support us with your presence and donations.

You can support me by buying a CD, download, or other swag in my shop. (I’m already on the second printing of mMix. It’s been sweet to get such positive feedback on it!)


And tonight, June 23, you can hear me live on KPFK (and online) during the 7-8 slot. I close the “Beautiful Struggle” program (around 7:45). The topic for this evening is the work of Public Allies, the organization formerly headed by First Lady Michelle Obama.

Now that it’s past, here’s the Podcast (my song is at 53:10, so scroll ahead):

Thursday, you can support us on our tour’s kick off, 8pm at the Musician’s Union on Vine. 817 Vine St., Los Angeles, CA 90038, 213-252-1351

If you’re not on the local list this is your first notice that on October 1st, an essay of mine called, “Playing the Verses Straight” will be released in an original anthology called “The Black Body.” It’s edited by Meri Nana-Ama Danquah and includes Obama’s inaugural poet Elizabeth Alexander among others.

I hope to see you on the road show. Please email me or check my site for more info.

Peace & Love,
