I write catchy, sad songs, and a new record is in the works. Stay tuned!
"I Never Meant It To Be Like This" places Cumulus squarely alongside contemporary acts like Best Coast, The Dum Dum Girls, and Tennis, while reaching back to a not-so-distant golden age of indie pop when good bands had hits, and the knack for wide-readership hooks (Elastica, Veruca Salt, Juliana Hatfield) and loud guitars (Yo La Tengo, My Bloody Valentine’s first album) didn’t preclude a heroic dose of delicacy (Heavenly, the Delgados, Velocity Girl, Tiger Trap). All of which is to say you could almost mistake Cumulus— who appear, let’s face it, pretty adorable—for twee if they didn’t rock so commandingly.
I'll have a few show announcements over the next few weeks, but I am really excited to be going back to Bellingham on February 1st and sharing the stage with John Van Deusen of THE LONELY FOREST. We will both be trying out our new songs and playing old favorites as well. Best part is it it's a free all ages show at the ASProductions Underground Coffeehouse. I hope to see you there!
Sending love, music, and hugs to everyone.
I love to hear that people are still discovering music off of my first album. "Night Swimming" is featured in Amazon Music's "Daily Digs" playlist. Check it out!
