as 10 years in austin approached, i freaked out and took the first out-of-state job i was offered. which took me to peoria, illinois, where i worked in the blandest cubicle in the grayest building amidst cornfields and retreated to my tower apartment in an old whiskey baron's mansion to make demos and have dance parties by myself with the then-new bassnectar album and rum.

after my yearlong contract was up, i moved to portland, oregon, determined to return to Austin with a record, which turned out to be "The 11th Floor". when i first arrived in portland, i stayed at a place with a vintage Edison phonograph player. there were a lot of foxtrots.
 
have a foxtrot from my "field recordings"
 
"The 11th Floor" was released in Austin in may 2007. since then, i have made 2 EPs ("Austin Lullabies" and "Sweet Little EP"), the brand new album "Broken Gold" (with R&B/dub organ trio The Finest Kind), and played my little heart out all over the place.
