in transit: relocating to California…

I will be moving to Los Angeles, California (and will be based there until the move to New York in December) over the next couple of days. As my working space (including my computer and phone) will be in flux (by the time you read this, my computer will be boxed), I may be offline, and will likely be difficult to get hold of (and apologies if I haven’t replied to your correspondence over the last few weeks). I’m still up for formal or ad-hoc playing opportunities (musicians, promoters, venues, please get in touch), but if you don’t hear from me, please feel free to nudge me in a couple of weeks.
