In 2010, after moving to Brooklyn from a small town in Georgia, I was on my own for the first time. Fresh out of my first queer relationship and heartbroken beyond belief, I poured my whole being into making an album of louder faster sadder songs to set the feelings free. In 2013 I released the record that launched me: Say What You Mean. So stoked to announce I'll be celebrating SWYM with a 10th Anniversary Tour tour this fall!!
For six of these shows I’ll be backed up and supported (musically and emotionally) by my tourmates Future Teens, and the shows are bound to be a once-in-a-lifetime total fuckin blast!
The rest of the dates are solo shows, an intimate party of their own where you’ll get the stripped down version of every song + backstories galore.
Join me for a live stream SWYM listening party that night at 9pm eastern at https://lowerkeymusic.bandcamp.com/live/say-what-you-mean-listening-party

HUGE thanks to my manager and friend Jer Berkin at Lost and Found for tirelessly putting this tour together so I could celebrate this anniversary before the year’s end!
Alright, spread the word y’all. In a world run by algorithms you can still be a human and send this post to a friend. See you out there!

The official music video for "Feels Like Hell" just dropped, starring JJ Hawkins opposite John-Allison Weiss playing an undead version of themself as we see what a zombie apocalypse can do to a friendship.
Shot, directed, and edited by JAW collaborator William White, with special effects makeup by Emma Page Bailey. Other cast include Sydney Kowalske (John-Allison's neice) and her dad Ryan Kowalske with Matthew Kurtz as a band of roving zombies, and Matt Bachmann appearing briefly as a frazzled news anchor. Special thanks to gaffer Antonio Reinaldo and the Glass Beach band for letting us use their home.
