Hi y’all, 
I’ve got a local show announcement coming SOON, but I’ve been spending most of my days in the murky depths of Caveman Studios working on an LP. Here are a few pictures to prove my story—it doesn’t look like I’m doing much, but trust me, the dog is a taskmaster.

RSD '16 In-Store appearance at Chaz's Bull City Records 

I'll take a break from shopping during this year's RECORD STORE DAY to perform a solo set at Chaz's Bull City Records here in Durham, NC on Saturday, April 16! The line-up for this FREE show includes Colin Sneed (of Unwed Teenage Mothers & Bass Drum of Death) and KJ & Nolan (of The Charming Youngsters)...not to be missed!

Folk-Pop Heaven! Opening for NELLIE MCKAY at Motorco (Durham), Fri. 2.19 

In a match made in folk-pop heaven, local troubadour CHARLES LATHAM will make his MOTORCO debut opening for the critically-acclaimed NELLIE MCKAY when she comes to Durham on Friday, February 19. 

Latham recently appeared on WUNC’s “The State of Things” with Frank Stasio to discuss his “living wage” project and the role of the Protest Singer in today’s world. Nellie McKay is touring in support of her latest album, “My Weekly Reader”, which finds contemporary relevance in ‘60s era pop. As Rolling Stone writes, “A renegade songwriter with an ultraflexible Great American Songbook sensibility, McKay finds modern resonances everywhere…the fiscal crash clouds the Kinks' ‘Sunny Afternoon’; the schools crisis haunts Frank Zappa's ‘Hungry Freaks, Daddy’.” Both artists trace the multicolored threads of the 1960s into modern day, from the coffeehouses of the Village to sunny FM radio, weaving them into something both new and timeless.

"Living Wage" on State of Things 

In case you missed my first-ever appearance on WUNC's "The State of Things" (North Carolina Public Radio and NPR affiliate) yesterday, the segment has been archived---I spoke to renowned host Frank Stasio about the living wage song project and played a couple of songs with assistance from the incomparable Catherine Edgerton.
