Modesty is my Middle Name 

I've been working with good friend and fellow songwriter Phillip MacDonald to chronicle some recent shows and on the visual component of my forthcoming LP (more details COMING SOON...)

Phillip MacDonald is a folklorist, photographer, and writer born, raised, and living among the long leaf pines in the beautiful piedmont region of North Carolina.

I hope you'll check out these shots he took around Durham, NC--head to "Photos" to see shots from my show with Lizzy Ross & Omar Ruiz-Lopez at The Station in Carrboro, then follow the link above to see more of Phillip's work!

Now arriving on track #18... 

Handsome dude alert!

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.
