He has spent the last decade touring and recording solo, a sort of “modern day acoustic troubadour” sharing the stage along the way with a bevy of fellow minstrels, including Colin Hay, Martin Sexton, John Prine, and Rob Thomas. His songs have been featured in film (August Rush, There’s Something About Mary, The Devil Wears Prada) and television (All My Children, Women’s Murder Club, Malcom in the Middle, ER, Pepper Dennis).
