Spicy Salutations (It's Been A While!) and Americanafest 2021

Howdy, lovely folks!


It’s been a while! Good thing nothing much has been happening in the world in the last year or so…

I do hope you all are healthy and happy and navigating the crazypants headlines. And even though it might have seemed quiet over here in AKS-land during the lockdown, I HAVE been quite busy creating things on my own little planet where penguins serve drinks, and puppies make the law.


I did several livestream events, benefits, and backyard concerts. The most recent livestream was in July with Lisa Loeb, for The Beachlife Festival. I’m 30 minutes in once the video starts. Lisa, who was just lovely, follows.

Otherwise, I’ve been in headphones a lot, writing and recording music, shooting and editing video, and stirring a magical pot of dreamy things. I am excited for the day I can release these wild creatures into the world! I’ll tell you more about those creations and timeline in the next email, now that I’m back on the grid. (Mostly).

But right NOW, I mostly wanted to send a wave, and let you know I’m heading to Nashville next week for Americanafest! It’ll be my first big return to a big music event, and I sure hope I remember how to 1. Talk to people and 2. Play for people. I had an Official Showcase at City Winery the last time Americanafest happened (2019), and even got to play TV host for a hot second for the fab DittyTV.
