This year marks 20 years since my debut album, May Day, was released. I could think of no better way to honor that than to make the very best collection of songs and recordings that I could with some friends I admire. But it was important to me that the new work not be looking backwards. I wanted it to have the roots that have always fired me up while continuing to be informed by and leaning-forward into the moment(s) we're all observing and sharing and feeling and living. I feel something special happened with the gang that helped me make this. Feels like a real beauty.

Hustle Up Starlings was produced by Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem. It includes performances by Brian Bequette, Brian Fallon, David Henry, Doug Lancio, Brad Pemberton and yours truly. It was mixed and recorded by Doug Lancio. And Hans DeKline once again mastered it into that shimmering film to be wildly welcoming.

Thank you for giving Hustle Up Starlings a listen. I hope you find something here that travels with you forever.
