“Music doesn’t get in.
Music is already in.
Music simply uncovers what is there,
makes you feel emotions that you didn’t necessarily know you had inside you,
and runs around waking them all up.
A rebirth of sorts.”
-Author Matt Haig, in How to Stop Time
Here in New England, the leaves are bidding a glorious and colorful goodbye!
This is just a peek from a recent trip to western MassachusettsGreetings Friends!
It’s been awhile since we chatted, so here’s what I’ve been up to….
For the past few months, I’ve been spending the majority of my time working on a Suite of 8 songs I wrote that tell the Anishinaabe legend “The Seven Fires Prophecy”.
I am happy to share with you that I have completed the Suite and recording has begun!
In addition, I am ALSO recording a second album (title TBD) of 8 original songs and one cover!
Steering both projects is the incomparable recording engineer, producer, composer
and multi-instrumentalist JON EVANS (Tori Amos, Sarah McLachlan), who layered all the delicious sonic textures on my past two recordings “Above Ground” and “Up Around The Bend”.
The recordings will be released in 2023, but be sure to check in on my social medias
for updates and behind-the-scene tidbits.
CLUB PASSIM: THE FOLK COLLECTIVE
I’m SO EXCITED and honored to be part of a new CLUB PASSIM initiative facilitated by Shea Rose, Curator of Music and Culture and Summer McCall, Marketing and Membership Manager.

THE SMALL GLORIES | Kim Moberg Opens
presented by Harwich Cranberry Arts and Music Festival
Harwich Cultural Center
204 Sisson Rd.
Roots powerhouse duo The Small Glories are Cara Luft (original member of harmony sweethearts The Wailin' Jennys)
& JD Edwards, a musical tour-de-force partnership planted on the Canadian Prairies. Thrown together purely by accident for an anniversary show at Winnipeg’s venerable West End Cultural Centre, The Small Glories could almost make you believe in fate.
With a stage banter striking a unique balance between slapstick and sermon, these veteran singer-songwriters have a way of making time disappear, rooms shrink, and audiences feel as they are right there on the stage with the band — writing the songs, living the songs, performing the songs. It’s not uncommon for listeners to find themselves laughing, dancing, crying, or caught up in a good ol’ fashioned sing-along.
Kim Moberg opens the show.

I am THRILLED to once again be joining my two very talented singer/songwriter friends
Rod Abernethy and Susan Cattaneo at this beautiful venue!
After a long and luminous career composing music for film, TV, and video games, Rod Abernethy has returned to his first and best love—the acoustic guitar—to perform the kind of music closest to his heart. His latest album, "Normal Isn’t Normal Anymore,” has been featured in No Depression, Vintage Guitar, American Songwriter, and The Wall Street Journal. Rod is the 2021 Overall Grand Prize Winner of International Acoustic Music Awards and the 2019 Winner of American Songwriter’s Bob Dylan Song Contest.
Susan Cattaneo is one of Boston’s most respected singer-songwriters. A powerful singer and sophisticated writer, she combines vivid storytelling with a modern songwriter’s spin. Respectful of tradition but not bound by it, she blends rock, folk, and blues with a healthy dose of country. Call it New England Americana with a twang.
As a writer, Cattaneo is a sought-after collaborator, as evidenced by her cowriting on recent albums by Dennis Brennan, Jenna Lotti, Jenee Halstead, Steve Mayone, and more. Her latest album, The Hammer and The Heart, reflects her love for collaboration. A double album with an electric side and an acoustic side, the record features 40 local and national artists including Mark Erelli, the Bottle Rockets, Bill Kirchen, Jennifer Kimball, Dennis Brennan, and Jenee Halstead,
just to name a few.
