I'm returning to downtown Portland's coziest listening hole — Al's Den — for a seven-night musical marathon. New originals, deep-cut covers, plenty of old standbys, and fantastic featured guests each night.
Last month I played seven nights in a row at Al's Den in Portland, Oregon, and had more than 85 songs ready to pull from the hat. Down below the Spotify playlist are the (60+) songs that actually got played over those seven nights. And here's a playlist of all those songs I could find on Spotify... [Note: my new album and a few unreleased tracks are not yet available on Spotify, but check back soon!]
