suggestion poems are back.
with the start of the new year, I have started doing suggestion poems again. check my Instagram story each Saturday to submit a word for that week's suggestion poem. I'll select two submissions and use those words to write a brand new poem, which I will post the following Wednesday.
book release: lines.
I'm super stoked and very excited to announce that my first book of poetry is officially here. "lines" is a book of 15 original poems, including 9 of my favorite suggestion poems(poems I write using random words provided by fans and followers via social media) from the past 2 years. "lines" also features original illustrations by the very talented Lacey McKeever. You can check out more about her on her website or Instagram. this is a project that's been on my heart and mind for years, and I'm so glad that I can finally share it with you.
you can order your copy here for just $10.
Sad Kid Summer: the final show
that's it. Sad Kid Summer 2023 is over. I have a mix of emotions. as an
independent artist, it took a lot of time, work, and energy to make these shows happen, and part of me is relieved and ready to finally relax for a spell. but obviously it's a bittersweet kind of relief. I want to say a sincere thank you to everyone who came out to any of the shows this summer. I saw lots of new faces in the crowd, and some of you even came to multiple shows. I really can't fully express how much that means to me. thank you for allowing me to share my music, my poetry, my heart with you. all I hope is
that it's helped you feel less alone, if even for just a moment. spread these songs around to anyone who might need a moment like that, too. it was a blast spending the summer with you, Springfield. I look forward to focusing on my next project and some new music for you all. sad kids party the hardest.
behind the music.
most recent entry: "Oh Mother"
in these posts, I share all about the stories and inspirations behind the songs.
check them out, get inside my head.
