Far Cries and Close Calls and Coyote Represses due in February

Greetings from a cold corridor in Ames, Iowa.



I wanted to drop by with some good news. First of all, the first vinyl pressing of Safe Passage (500) is nearly sold out in the first four months of it’s release. Thank you to everyone who purchased the physical medium and spun it at home, work, and spaces of joy, both shared and personal. In the light of this, Black Mesa Records has decided to re-press my long since out-of-print 2016 album “Far Cries and Close Calls” (originally on Horton Records), along with 2018’s “Coyote”, which also sold out last year.


Both albums will come pressed onto black vinyl, with a limited color edition for each work to signify their second life. Starting immediately, you can pre-order these new pressings on my own Bandcamp, along with our respective websites. Thank you again for listening and may warmth surround you and yours in these winter months.
