My friends!! Please please take a sec and follow @thewhaleofficial if you’re at all interested in my whaling endeavors. This page will begin to lose its cetacean qualities and will instead be populated by videos of my nephew in lieu of anything related to killing or kissing whales. Thanks peeps!!! 💙❤️💙 last one: 🐋 #thewhale #rock #singersongwriter #singersongwriterlife #composer #composerlife #musician #musicianlife #nycmusician #singer #singerlife #whales #folk #soul #rock #hiphop #singing #mobydick #melville #soulawakening #musical

Opening for @Sambushband again with @theblueeyedbettys @bartertheatre on Jan 12. This guy is the daddy of Newgrass. He took everything promulgated by Bill Monroe and turned it topsy turvy. I’m giddy and unworthy all at once. The show is over 80% sold; hit up the link in our band bio for tix if you’re trying to come!! #newgrass #sambush #sambushband #belafleck #mandolin #banjo #fiddle #fusion #folk #folkfusion #love #virginia #abingdon #musicianlife

Please visit my band @lionandspaniel ‘s campaign and pre-order our album into existence. We’ve been working these tunes over in the studio for 2 years. They are some of the folkiest, sweetest, and most bizarre recordings I’ve ever been a part of and it would be a great joy to share them with you all. Be a part of the magic won’t you? link. In. Bio. Amazing 📸 @brothermountainfilms

Singing The Whale with my beloved @apartmentsessions @rockwoodmusichall this Sunday at 7pm. I’ve only ever performed this song live in NY alone at the piano, and this time it’ll be with a full band times ten (like 40+ of my Iceland playas or something) and I’m positively gallied with excitement over the idea. If you haven’t been to one of the @apartmentsessions shows it’ll be tasty; you’ll be talking to a neighbor and then all of the sudden you discover they’re packing heat (I mean like a clarinet under their sweater). You’ll be more suprised than I was during the taking of this wonderful photo by @brothermountainfilms !!! Just kidding, this was staged. Speaking of staged, stage 2! See you there! #thewhale #killthewhale #kissthewhale #awakenthewhale #incaseyoucanttell #imchanging #the #name #oftheshow #doesthewhaleperish #apartmentsessions #music #livemusic #nycomposer #musician #musicianlife #island #islandlife #iceland

Here’s a snippet of a brand new song for The Whale, penned in a chicken coop @spaceonryderfarm . This tyune is “Folk Soul”, which is a stylization of the way sailors pronounced the name of their quarters on the whale ship: the Forecastle, or Foc’sle. The crew on a Nantucket whaler was among the most culturally diverse groups in the 19th century fishery, a spirit I’ve tried to reflect by blending genres from classic RnB, to funk, to reggae...can’t wait to hear like ten singers shred it. (The first person to point out what I’m using for a pick can have it.) #thewhale #awakenthewhale #kissthewhale #herewego #letssee #hashtags #singersongwriter #singersongwriterlife #composer #composerlife #island #islandlife #music #livemusic #recordingartist #thanksbutterduck #forthemic #gum #whateverittakes #astheysay #soitgoes #forecastle #midnightforecastle #thanksmelove #mobydick

If a chicken coop evicts the hens, seals its windows, and acquires a keyboard, is it still a fowl place?
Had the time of my life all week last week @spaceonryderfarm . Hung out with the chilly little barn mice, and dug deep into the book for the whale. One day soon, You’ll all get to see/hear!! #thewhale #savethewhale #kissthewhale #killthewhale #lovethewhale #spaceonryderfarm #artistresidency #creativeresidency #bulkington #eggs #layingeggs #layingartisticeggs

Did I tell you all that I cosplayed as Kenny McKormick while in Iceland? Only thing I ever wore. 📸 @lizsmalls @apartmentsessions #cosplay #kennymccormick #southpark #southbjork #mattandtrey #mattandtreyparker #onandeveronward #banjo

I just spent ten days of music making with forty beautiful people in Iceland. The world looks essentially the same as it looked a week and a half ago, and has simultaneously become more beautiful, to one pair of humbly discerning eyes. In the last year, I’ve started to see the world almost exclusively through the eyes of Ishmael, the subjective voice of Moby-Dick, and have associated myself with the book to the point of parody to my friends. On first read it frames the world as such a scary place, and portends a purposelessness to all things. But, on further introspection, I realize that it is exactly this view that brought me to Iceland. “I know not all that may be coming, but be it what it will, I’ll go to it laughing”. Stay tuned as the angels @apartmentsessions endeavor to capture the spirit of our adventures in a series of live music videos. One of these vids will be #thewhale , created with 40 musicians and artists at the edge of Hvalfjordur, Iceland’s legendary Whale Fjord. But watch them all. They’re all gems. Thank you my jolly jewels. @lizsmalls 📸 it #hvalfjordur #iceland #fjords #caves #music #whales #love #lovethewhale #melville #thewhale #mobydick #introspection #introflection

Last night I got to sing #thewhale in Reykjavik, Iceland, supported by twenty five musicians who are all my new pals and favorite people. Surreal and absurd. @apartmentsessions I owe you one.
