Hi! Welcome! Come on in!




I sings the songs that I write with my own two hands. Well, I sings them with my voice; I write them with my own two hands. And really, I guess I only really write with one hand. I tried writing with the other one once; it was unsatisfying. And illegible. Not that it's all that legible with the good hand. SO: I sings the songs with my voice that I write, semi-legibly, with my one good hand. Not that there's anything wrong with the other hand, it just doesn't write very well. But it has other uses: it holds the fork when I cut meat with a knife, and it makes the chords happen on my guitar. Both of those are important things. SO: I sings the songs with my voice that I write with my one good writing hand, while my other hand fingers chords or holds a fork. 

I think I need to lie down.

Pre-Sale Continues! Winter Walk! 

Hi there ho there, 

You know I don't like to bother y'all too too often, so two quick points and I'm out: 

The pre-sale continues for my debut LP! If you don't order your copy by the end of this month, you won't get the early digital release (which will come out weeks, if not MONTHS, before the official release), and you won't have a chance to get any of the fun perks I have for you! Those are ABSOLUTELY only for this pre-order period! I really hate asking for help, but I really need it. In this month of…

A Supplemental Pre-Sale/Fundraiser 

Hey folks, 

Won't take much of your time. And if you already pledged to help me make my debut LP, then you can stop reading here knowing I hold you in the highest esteem, and speak your name with warm gratitude. 

Otherwise: I'm doing a supplemental pre-sale/fundraiser for this record, because I just don't know how else I'll be able to get it finished. I didn't like asking before, and I don't like asking now, but: I need your help. I'm (nearly if not completely) done with tracking, but there's mixing…

JH in November: News and Notes 

Hi there ho there! I have the usual quasi-cold that I get when it's 65 and then 35 and then 65 and then it snows four inches and then it melts in less than 24 hours, and The Better Half and I haven't quite gotten around to fully cleaning up after our housewarming(s), but. I got no particular complaints today. 

ON TO THE NEWS!! 

Gigs: light this month, just a quick duo next weekend. Hitting up some open mics here and there, but heading into something like hibernation for the winter: 
Friday, November 11…

JH In October: A Little Quiet(er) 

Hey folks, 

Fairly quick update today: I'm scaling back on gigs a bit heading into the winter, both because weather gets pretty dicy, and also so that I can keep my head down a little and write and finish up this god-forsaken record (which, truth be told, is coming along beautifully if slowly and which has lots of new tidbits that I wish to tell you about but I can't just yet). 

That said, since I go a little nuts if I don't get to make an ass of myself in public now and again, you'll probably see me…

JH in September: Some New Ideas, Some New Songs 

Hiyooooooo 

Lots to get through: 

A: The record. I'm headed to the studio tonight for the pentultimate tracking day: after 10PM tonight, two thirds of the songs should be fully tracked (and possibly even mixed). Maybe, maybe, y'all get a sneak peek soon. Maybe. Probably looking at early 2017 for release... stay tuned. 

B: Gigs. Kind of a light month, largely as I have a couple trips with The Better Half, and they're the kind where I was informed in no uncertain terms that I would NOT be allowed to gig…

JH in August: HUGE PHILLY SHOW!! Other Shows As Well!! 

Hi Ho Hi Ho It's Off To Promote I Go... 

And a good morning to all of you! I'd like to begin by thanking Magpie Bookshop and the many lovely people who came out to welcome me in my first gig in my new hometown! Went to bed all warm and fuzzy and, admittedly, still a little sweaty. Looking forward to singing to your pretty faces many more times (including at next week's Farmer's Market!). 

The BIG news for the month is the ONE NIGHT ONLY REUNION SHOW of THE WAY HOME. For those who came later: The Way Home…

JH In July - Summer Feels Like Forever 

Hey folks, 

Hope everyone is surviving and staying cool here in my least favorite time of the year! As I'm sure you've all seen, I'm a sweater (thanks, Dad!), so I spend the hot months in basically a constant state of schvitz. The Better Half keeps hinting that we should move to the south. I remind her that she'd be married to a puddle.  
Speaking of The Better Half, we just bought a house in Catskill NY, which seems impossible (or at least ill-advised: what idiot at a bank thought I should be given lots…

JH In June & My Birthday Gift To You!! 

Gooooood morning, all! 

It's my birfday, and, while this morning is spent at my day job (boo!), the afternoon and evening will be spent in the studio (yay!) getting one solid day closer to finished with this first LP (DOUBLE YAY!). I suspect at this point we're looking at the fall for the release of this record, possibly even winter (if necessary). Scheduling is hard. I'm hoping maybe to have an advance track or two done sooner than that, though: it's driving me crazy that I can't share it with y'all…

JH In April: News And Thoughts! 

Greetings and salutations!! 

It's Opening Day for my beloved (and bad) Phillies, so of course there's three inches of snow on the ground. Maybe it'll help: maybe the child-like wonder of a spring snowstorm will awaken a passion for the game that will push us through to October! Or maybe we'll lose 95 games this year. Time will tell. 

To begin: one year ago today, I took the stage, flanked by several of my very closest friends, in front of many more of my very closest friends, to bid farewell to…
