Just before the end of tour, Calamity Sam gifted me the original dot drawing she created for new music I’m releasing early next year. I slipped it in between the keyboard and screen of my closed laptop for safe keeping, and I think that’s where it’ll live - a reminder of friendship and the courageous people in my life every time I open up my computer and tackle the day’s challenges.

Thank you, Sam. I hope you and Carter Adams are reading this while enjoying crispy IPAs at Jupiter, just a stone’s throw from Dabadelphia.
