Happy Spring! And Tiny Desk Contest

Happy Spring to all my northern hemisphere friends! It seems like Spring has started right on time here in the Pacific Northwest, the flowers are blooming gorgeously.

Also, NPR is having a Tiny Desk Contest for artists to submit to get featured on their Tiny Desk Concert series, so Phil and I snuck into the Oval Office to record a live version of ‘Madman’ for submission:

Security at the White House is super lax these days, just tell them you’re Russian and they let you right in.

Enjoy!

White Hoods In The White House – Video

I recorded a new video, a solo acoustic performance of ‘White Hoods In The White House’. It is very inspiring to see so many people across the USA standing up for what’s right and resisting the current occupants of the White House.

“If you need us we’ll be out in the street, marching for our children, it won’t be on TV…”

The Earth is a better planet with her on it, and our band is much better with her as a part of it. She also makes super tasty baked mac & cheese.

Pacific Northwest, You Are Gorgeous

Our Oregon adventure has been wonderful so far, I don’t get a lot of time for camping so I like to perform a couple of shows per year near some nice camping opportunities. I’m glad we were able to squeeze in a few nights this year. We were in The Dalles last night, and we’ll be in Bend tonight at the Velvet Lounge.

I’ll be back in Seattle on Sunday afternoon for a full-band show at the waterfront by the Great Wheel. 2:30PM, free and all ages, stop by if you can.

Best,

Tribute For Heather Heyer

A woman was killed by a Nazi Trump supporter in Charlottesville, Virginia on Saturday August 12. She was defending human rights and equality in America and protesting against fascists, her name is Heather Heyer, and she is an American hero. I didn’t know her, and I can’t really offer much support for her family, the whole situation is heartbreaking and enraging, but we will work even harder to resist and take power away from the people Heather was protesting.

Love,

SJ

White Hoods In The White House

Who’s gonna wash those white hoods in the White House?
They’re gonna find out!
Break out their finest crosses to burn on the Front Lawn
They get so turned on!

Pretend to not feel the heat, so comfy in that seat
Check your heart beat!
Maybe they won’t come for you, if you follow their rules
Such a fool!

If you need us we’ll be out in the street
Marching toward freedom, it won’t be on TV
If you need us we’ll be out in the street
Marching toward justice, it won’t be on TV

Watch the waters keep rising, while compromising
Let’s just jump in!
It wasn’t so far back in history, it’s no mystery
We said “Never again!”

If you need us we’ll be out in the street
Marching toward freedom, it won’t be on TV
If you need us we’ll be out in the street
Marching toward justice, it won’t be on TV
If you need us we’ll be out in the street
Marching for our sisters, it won’t be on TV
If you need us we’ll be out in the street
Marching for our brothers, it won’t be on TV
