I am very excited to be releasing this cover of Ani Difranco’s “Both Hands” today. I recorded it with J. Tom Hnatow at Small Blue in Lexington, KY as a little namaste to Ani for being an amazing role model to me as an artist.

In 1998, I went to sleep away camp in Northern Ontario and heard Ani DiFranco’s music for the first time. A thousand miles away from my parents and my home, her music became the soundtrack to adventure and my first taste of freedom. As soon as I returned to Wisconsin, I learned to play “Both Hands.” Ani DiFranco’s music became a beacon of light to my suburban adolescence. Every time I saw her play I felt something growing in me. It was the realization that my true calling was to be a songwriter.

Earlier this year I read Ani DiFranco’s new memoir. Hearing her tell her story, I had a sudden realization that somehow the thing I had always dreamed of doing had actually happened - over twenty years and many albums of my own, I had become an artist.
