We started as me, and then there were more, and now it's just me again. Ideally I'm making music that is calm, beautiful, and comes from a place of honesty. F this hyperactive, overproduced, corporate-sponsored robot noise, am I right? Let's sing a simple, but really beautiful song. And then let's take a nap.

I am always writing songs. Many very dumb songs, some really nice ones. The few I keep are often the simplest; the ones that come out organically from dreams and paintings and things my mom says. And things it took a million years and a million painful moments to distill. And things that keep tapping you on the shoulder and bothering you until you trap them in a song and move on with your life.

The Rock Shop, Brooklyn, fall 2014. Playing with my sister Marianna, my cousin Anna Maria, and fellow songwriter David Greenberg as "Ana Rose and the Unnamed Sprits." It was great to be in a band!
