It’s been over a year ago that I performed my one man, multi-media show WE ARE NOT TROUBLED GUESTS here in Portland…. and although I have performed it around four times here, I’ve had a number of people who still have not seen it and have requested me to perform it again.

A Christmas Together – 2014 Tour

Screen Shot 2014-12-20 at 1.24.43 PM

I’ve had the great privilege to be on “A Christmas Together” tour. It’s a group of friends who wanted to do a christmas concert in their own unique way… more focused on artist collaboration. This is their five year running and it’d been a real delight to be on tour with Jadon Lavik, Tim Timmons, Sarah MacIntosh, Pawnshop Kings, and spoken word artist Micah Bournes.

7/29 – Seattle performance of “…Troubled Guests”

play2

Seattle friends!

I’m finally getting up to the town I grew up in to put on a performance of my one man show We Are Not Troubled Guests.” I’m sending in invite to all of you in that area to come for a couple reasons…..

1. I want to show you what I’m up too. 

In my evolving as an artist, I’ve come to a place where I’ve realized that most of what I want to be working on is multi-medium storytelling. I will always be a visual artist…. but I know I want what I create to end at a place where I’m sharing stories with an audience. “Troubled Guests” is my first foray into this format….. and I’d love for my friends and family who’ve supported me so long to see what I’m up to.

2.  I’m filming this one and need an audience!

I’m filming this show for documentation and promotional use and it would be a huge help to have a great audience there!

Overview:

A number of years ago, I suffered a depressive episode through burnout while I worked at a church.  What that burnout revealed, and any pain really (loss, tragedy, suffering), was my deepest doubts and unbelief.  I found navigating this brokenness tremendously difficult whilst being a religious leader. After I had left that job, and throughout the next year, I went on a journey trying to discover if faith in the Divine would ever be an option for me again.  And I discovered something even more frightening than the loss of religion in my life… the loss of community.
 
Through a mix of video, speaking, painting, and a bit of karaoke, I explore many different stages of this journey –   humor, anger, pain, despair, helplessness, confession, acceptence – all of which led me to a very transformational and transcendent experience… which changed the way I see the entire human race and my place in it.

 

Thx for your support. Hope to see you there!

7/19 PDX – Concert with Justin McRoberts & Alli Rogers

AJS poster v2

Hey Portland friends!

The stars have aligned and it’s going to happen. Alli and Justin are both great friends and musicians I really respect. We have dreamed of doing a show together – a mix of their singer/storytelling strengths with my new venture into performance arting – and on July 19th… this will be the reality.

This won’t be your normal concert. Besides storytelling from all of us, Justin and Alli will both be sharing songs while I’m live painting and video DJing a giant screen behind us. It will be a memorable night… I guarantee it.

 

You can buy tickets early here and receive some free music from Justin and Alli and have your name put in a drawing for a piece of art from me.

Tickets will also be available at the door… but no extras. Sorry.

Hope to see you there!!!!
