• notes from home & doe bay

    Here's a project I am very proud to be a part of: Notes from Home

    Notes from Home in the simplest of terms is a house show series. The shows take place in living rooms in and around Seattle. The audio is multi-tracked live. Photographers are invited to come shoot the show. And a few songs of each set are recorded to video by Tyler Kalberg and Dylan Priest. Now that the site is up and running, you can listen to (and download!) that audio, you can look at the photos, and you can watch the videos. It's pretty incredible.

    I was lucky to design both the logo and do the majority of the type work for the site and videos. I'm very, very happy with how it's all come out and I couldn't be more proud of Tyler, Dylan, and Zach for putting this all together.

    I also helped organize show #3, with Damien Jurado, John Vanderslice, and Colin Reynolds. I sang with Jurado and Vanderslice, and one of my songs with Vanderslice made it into the video section. You can watch that here (it's the second song of three, but you should watch the whole thing):

    I also mentioned a few posts back that I sang with Vanderslice at Doe Bay Fest on Orcas Island this past August. We filmed a Doe Bay Session for Northwest music blog Sound on the Sound (also shot by Tyler Kalberg), and here's the result of that:
