NEW MARSHWEED RECORD AVAILABLE!!! “Marshweed in the Garden,” a collection of original songs by Heather Lockie. Co-produced by myself and Clay Chaplin.
Julia Holter says, “What a rich colorful album, and the text content is so unified around this imagery of growth and seeds and soil and creatures, pain and drudgery of life, beauty of life etc…”
And I think that’s pretty accurate. Thanks Julia.
Digital trax available HERE. CD coming soon, with paintings and lyrics.

• LA READERS CHORUS performed “Wedding; Funeral” (words Shawn Lockie, music/arr Heather Lockie) at Automata, Nov 2015.
• Earlier this year video artist Jordan Biren asked me to make a series of scores for performance pieces. The two images to the left are different graphics representing the music for his text piece “Letter,” and to the right is music for “Walk.” (see larger images in “Paintings/Scores”)
•New release out now! • Three Thirds welcomes to the world its first release of original folk and pop tunes called “Oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh!”, covering subjects like “origins of bringing water to Los Angeles” (Owens Valley), “our favorite freeway” (The Five), and “that one hijacker who got away” (DB Cooper). Exciting stuff! I wrote two songs on this and am quite happy about the whole cd.
