People Are People

Last night I went to my first lesbian night club. (pause for you to catch your breath) Like so many of the diverse and amazing experiences I’ve had in my life, I have music to thank for it. As usual, I am always curious as to how the music I play will adapt to those [...]

Through the wars

Hop down to any pub and share a schooner with your Aussie (Australian) mates (translation: share a chat and a beer with your friends) and, before long, the reminiscing begins. You remember the good times with the bad, recall friends you haven’t seen in ages. Some living the good life and others not so much. [...]

Belmont University releases non-discrimination policy

The circumstances surrounding the sudden departure of soccer coach, Lisa Howe from Belmont University left many students and the Nashville community concerned and confused. What, exactly, is Belmont’s policy regarding sexual orientation? Will students and faculty face discrimination if they are open about their sexuality? It is important to note, that from the beginning, Dr. [...]

An Open Letter to Belmont University

I am disheartened by the circumstances surrounding Lisa Howe’s departure from Belmont University. That any employee, student or church member in our society be required to remain silent about their sexual orientation in exchange for secure employment, academic growth or spiritual support is an intolerable injustice. Unfortunately, this conditional coercion is far too often the [...]

To say nothing…

On the weekend of November 12, I was invited to speak at a symposium at Highlands Church in Denver, CO. Rev. Mark Tidd laid forth a daunting request. Would I be willing to speak open and candidly about my experience as a gay person of faith? He’s not the first person to ask. From the [...]

What’s in the bag?

Ok, my brain is fried, so for now, I thought I’d write about something a bit on the lighter side of things. I’m not much of a gear junky, but I am picky what I use out on the road. As I’m doing the solo acoustic thing a lot these days, I’m traveling very light. [...]

Name Brand Labels

Ok, I’ve been inside my head all week. Mulling and obsessing as usual. Here’s what it looks like: You may have caught the news, that former gothic novelist, Anne Rice has decried Christianity, in the name of Christ...Her words, not mine. With all the eloquent prose befitting her talents as a writer, she’s attempting to shed [...]

Some like it hot!

No doubt, one of the most anticipated dates on my calendar this year, I had the opportunity to catch up with Lilith Fair 2010 in Kansas City and St. Louis this July. First, it was a bit of a crap shoot ever getting a spot. (There’s not a girl with a guitar on this planet [...]

Priming the pump

A few years ago I joined a weekly group with several other artists. There were painters, photographers, writers, and actors. Few made a living through their chosen form of expression, but all were drawn to try and comprehend this compulsion we seemed to share: Creativity. To help our conversations along, we chose the book The [...]

Knapp / Webb Tour Debrief

So, the Jennifer Knapp, Derek Webb and Amy Courts ‘no name tour’ has come to an end! I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to Derek and Amy for their time, encouragement and flavorful company in helping me get my tour ‘chops’ back in shape! It is always a pleasure to share the load [...]
