Dear live music loving friends,
Come this Wednesday to the Stepping Stone in Ballard and we’ll make you feel nice and tingly inside. The night’s entertainment will include:
Saint John and the Revelations
See you Wednesday!
I love that moment when you’ve added enough tracks to your Spotify playlist that you can actually sit back and enjoy it for a few minutes.
Bill Rieflin and I spent most of the afternoon rehearsing. And drinking tea. Tea seems to be the SJATR constant ingredient. (Taken with instagram)
Victory Hop Wallop. This is perhaps the finest IPA I’ve ever had. #IPA #beer (Taken with instagram)
Don’t panic, the bright glowing yellow orb in the sky is not an alien invader, it is the Sun. I know that it is foreign in these parts of the world, but I assure you that as long as you put on a little sunscreen, it is very safe. Perhaps even enjoyable.
In southern California we co-exist peacefully with the Sun for most of the year. We wear fewer clothes and our skin takes on a darker hue, and we spend a lot more time outside at places known as “the beach” and “the park”.
So please do not fire that massive particle cannon that you have hidden in the Space Needle (in case of alien invasion) at that glowing orb, but rather revel in it.
The Sun is your friend, I hope you can get outside today and enjoy it!
Seattle just keeps showing itself off as one of the best cities for music.

I am so incredibly excited to announce my new single, ‘Make a Fuss’!!!
I wrote this song for a girl I was completely infatuated with on a sunny day in Venice Beach, California, and ended up recording it with a rock-and-roll legend, Peter Buck from R.E.M. in Seattle, Washington. It’s a small and magical world, connected by music.
Saint John and Peter Buck
The rest of the amazing musical crew on this single is Scott McCaughey (R.E.M., Robyn Hitchcock), Paul Fox (Producer: Bjork, Wallflowers, 10,000 Maniacs), and Bill Rieflin (R.E.M., Ministry, KMFDM):
Jamming in the studio, L-R: Peter Buck, Paul Fox, Saint John, Scott McCaughey, Bill Rieflin
We have some more songs recorded and we’re excited to finish the rest of the record (with even more legendary musical guests), but in the meantime, let me present to you, ‘Make a Fuss’ (available on iTunes):

Saturday April 21st Jabi Shriki, Yevtushenko, Broken By Clouds, and I, will be splattering some rock-and-roll music all over the stage of the Ould Triangle in Greenwood. Music is pretty much the best thing ever, and we look forward to playing a whole bunch of songs for you!

See you Saturday!
Dear lovers of music, there is a delight for me in knowing that every Wednesday at the Stepping Stone in Ballard I can hang out all evening and play some tunes and share the stage with my favourite Seattle singer-songwriters. I hand pick every artist that plays on these Wednesdays and I personally guarantee their quality.
This Wednesday Jean Mann and Jeremy Serwer will be bringing their musical magic to the Stepping Stone. 8PM-midnight, FREE.
