Consumer Guide Reviews:

Arts & Leisure [Ile Flottante, 2016]
Sung offhandedly and observed at, yes, leisure, the pleasurable escape of going to museums and looking at art--Calder, Copley, Michelangelo ("Jobs I Had Before I Got Rich and Famous," "Calder's Circus") ***

My Kinda Music [Ile Flottante, 2017]
Homemade-sounding ditties about what sounds like middle-class family life ("Family Tree," "Marco Polo") **

Reminisce Bar & Grill [Ile Flottante, 2018]
More pretty good indie-rock songs about a satisfying enough indie-rock life ("Too Cold to Waterski," "I Went Alone on a Solo Australian Tour") *
