New City. New House. New Car. New Dog. New Gig. #NEWLIFE

Uh. So some things have changed…

Back in late June we up and relocated to Nashville. We have a real life house with more bedrooms than we need, I have a car for the first time since 2014 when I sold it and moved to NYC, we adopted a dog and - I have a new and very exciting venture.

My first few months here I stayed on remotely helping my Superfly team get through on last Outside Lands and it was magical. I knew there would likely be a bit of lag time because I didn’t want to settle for just any job. I’m finally here in a city I have loved and longed to be in - so settling was really an option. Enter Centric Entertainment. A new start up that launched earlier this year, focusing on music artists and the entertainment space. I’m a part of a small but fierce team and I couldn’t be more excited to see what the future holds for this place and for myself. Here’s to NEW!

The Lost Lake 2017 Afterglow

It was a weekend for the books and a year and a half in the making for me. By far my most challenging project and festival to date, but man did we leave beaming. This is why we do what we do. 

It's been an incredible honor to celebrate the vibrant culture of the Valley of the Sun with you. We're so grateful for the creativity, energy and support of the Phoenix community that came together around the lake this weekend. Fans, artists, staff, vendors, and volunteers... You make this magic happen.

Denver music festival: Superfly’s new Phoenix fest offers a glimpse of what’s to come

Denver Post - The Know
PHOENIX — As darkness fell on Steele Indian School Park on Sunday, hundreds of people gathered to watch the giant metal lotuses on the lake bloom with flames. The flowers, which appeared to float innocuously on the water all day, were rigged to shoot fire several feet on the hour after sunset in sync with songs such as Rage Against the Machine’s “Bulls on Parade” and Prince’s “Purple Rain.”

Comedy Central's Colossal Clusterfest Plays Well In Year One, But Will They Aim For More?

Forbes

Best of Bonnaroo 2016: Haim, Andra Day, Crawfish, BonnaGrannies & More

Billboard
Though it was the first year Live Nation had fully taken over, Bonnaroo began and ended just as it always had for the past 15 years: with crawfish. The annual Manchester, Tennessee-based music and arts festival kicked off Thursday (June 9) night with a crawfish boil hosted by Chris "Shaggy" Davis of NOLA Crawfish King whose tent, refrigerated trucks and 4,000 pounds of crustaceans remained nestled in the woods among a sea of tents and pathways lit by string lights over the four day event.

Pitchfork Day 1 Report: Chvrches...and Wilco, I guess.

Chvrches showed up to Pitchfork with three new songs in tote, announcing a new album will be dropping sometime this September, just in time for their fall tour. Playing in 90 degree heat and 250% humidity, the crowd didn't seem to mind and the band didn't miss a beat. Also, that Lauren Mayberry - tiny and fierce. In my next life (if that's a thing) I want to be her. 

Wilco was...well, Wilco. I came. I saw. I danced a little. I left.


Bonnaroo 2015

Those who have been to the farm before return for the same reasons. It's an escape to something close to a nirvana; escape from reality, love: 100K new best friends for four days straight, and of course the music. I'm going to go ahead and consider myself a Bonnaroo veteran with this being my third consecutive year. This year was arguably my least favorite lineup out of the last three years, but whatevs. It was also the hottest camping experience so far and our camp literally was about as far away as we could get (I really missed that Olay partnership with the girls only restrooms and vanity stations I was parked next to last year). But with all of that being said, none of the heat or bathroom situations really mattered. I still left with the same elated and positive feelings that I do every single year.

I can never say enough great things about this festival. You enter, set up, and become part of a "community" of people who want nothing more than to spread positivity and embrace four days of music and love. When you exit, you have a high that lasts you the rest of the summer. I hope a 4th year is in my future - but a RV may need to be in the works this time around...
