musician with an old piano | massachusetts, USA


I live in Northampton, Massachusetts USA and make melancholy indie folk ballads on an old piano. I’ve made a number of records over the years with a rotating cast of friends and fellow musicians (Matthew Larsen and The Documents). You can find those records on the internet easily at any of the usual streaming services. I made some older records too (Smokejumpers, Northernly) but those are somewhere in a box in the depths of the basement or on whatever is left of MySpace. As of late, I’ve been mostly solo in my living room, gathering ideas for a new record and never quite finishing songs. See you on the internet, a house concert, or in an intimate songwriter’s room or small stage somewhere soon.

Sometimes short, quiet and sweet– other times building into wall-of-sound anthems, Matthew Larsen and The Documents’ introspective piano rock songs often recall serious health issues (Matthew underwent a stem cell transplant in 2005). Their songs are lovingly written and recorded in studios, hallways, and living rooms in Western Massachusetts, New York, and L.A.
