It’s official. The album will drop on February 20th in Seattle (available on Feb 23rd nationally) – two months and three days from now! Mark your calendars and start getting excited! I just got the final masters back and am so incredibly happy with how it turned out. I can’t wait for you to hear.
The release celebration will take place in Seattle and I’d love you to be there. Seating is limited (because the show is on a boat!) so be sure to get your tickets early. It’s going to be a special–and very unique–evening, which also means that the tickets will make perfect holiday gifts (a magical night on a historic steamship? yes!). Here’s the link to get your tickets:

*** About the Virginia V ***
The steamship Virginia V (the “V” represents the Roman numeral five) is the last operational example of a Puget Sound Mosquito Fleet steamer. She was once part of a large fleet of small passenger and freight carrying ships that linked the islands and ports of Puget Sound in Washington State in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
Her original route was between the cities of Tacoma and Seattle, along the West Pass (also known as “Colvos Passage”) between Vashon Island and the Kitsap Peninsula.
Today the ship operates from Heritage Wharf at Lake Union Park in Seattle.
