That’s a wrap, Idaho!

Hey friends! Wanted to share the news that Casey and I are going to be moving to Portland together in September.

I came to Idaho for love, stuck around to make a record and a film, and am leaving after two years because, try as I might, this is just not my home. Oregon is. And Casey is. So here we go.

Thank you to everyone in Boise who has shown me kindness, welcomed me into your homes and scenes, collaborated on music, or made me feel like I belonged in some other way while I have lived here by making space for me in your lives.

My Idaho experience has been really mixed. Pretty lonely, actually. I miss my family. I miss my friends. My studio is in Portland. My record label is there. Most of the other bands I work with are PDX-based. And I absolutely hate feeling like I am in danger just being alive as a gay man in a deeply red state. But those of you who have made me feel safe and let me sit at your table here in Idaho will always hold a special place in my heart and history. Thank you.

And to our PDX community: We’ll see you this fall!

Thank you to everyone who has been streaming and watching Loud and Clear the past few days since its release.

This song is about loving someone who ultimately doesn’t have space for you in their life because that space is already filled by someone else. It’s about wrestling with that painful truth while also still really wanting this other person and doing whatever it takes to try and carve out a space for yourself and make things work. It’s about ignoring red flags and all the things we tell ourselves in order to smooth out the rough edges of our humanity when they appear jagged and torn in that sort of environment.

The truth is, all people hide. We hide from ourselves, and we hide from one another. It’s human nature. For me, it can sometimes be hard to remember what I deserve, just broadly, but I think I often deserve so much more than I am willing to accept.

This song is about naming and reconciling that power dynamic and still holding tight to love — even when it’s not returned.
