Split Single City Living/Orlando out now!
CL single cover 1(1).jpg

My new split single City Living/Orlando is out! My entire record was built around “City Living” so I’m excited to feature the track. “Orlando” was too different musically and thematically to make the album, and I’m so glad it’s now found it’s way into the world.

“Orlando” was written after the Pulse nightclub shooting as a way to process that horror and as public penance for homophobia in my youth. I grew up in a mainstream, evangelical church that referred to homosexuality as a “learned form of perversion.” They made a concerted effort to teach homophobia to teenagers and children by stoking fear and intolerance. It was shameful. I know for sure that it’s possible for people to let go of intolerance, bigotry, and fear because I did. David Bazan said, "If you don't hold your mistakes up for everyone to see then no one learns anything." I agree. This song is a love letter to all the wonderful gay men and women I’ve had the privilege to know.
