Anticipated in 2019, One Breath features songs about transcendence, about the joy of loving others well, about living and dying, and about going on living after the death of a loved one. Songs on this album affirm hope, beauty, and comfort in the face of hatred, suffering, and despair. One Breath reflects on the passage of time, how we change, and how we stay the same, all sung and played from the heart with a love for all. I am excited to be bringing in these amazing musicians to contribute to the album and thankful to all of them:

  • Milwaukee-based percussionist Nathan Kilen–who displays true artistry in working with singer-songwriters like Peter Mulvey–will be recording with me
  • The marvelous Jeff Mason (Rose Among Thorns and Merry Horde member and solo artist) will provide lead and additional guitar color
  • Much-loved Madisonian Johnny Widdicombe will be providing stand-up acoustic bass on several songs
  • The wonderful Tricia Alexander will be blowing blues harmonica for “Ridin’ Along”. (Yes!)
  • Joe Jencks, one of the most popular folk artists in the U.S. (and beyond), will be arranging and recording harmonies and bazuki for “Take Shelter in Love”

I am happy to say that One Breath is shaping up beautifully, and I can’t wait to get it in your hands. If you want to pre-order or donate to support the project, please use my Square site at this link:  One Breath album pre-sale and donation campaign site
