The Songbird Society ~ Week 2! 

We have passed the first milestone goal! With flying colors and wings! Thank you!!!

The second weekly video of the Songbird Society has been posted, called My Heart Will Be. Society members got a download of it last Thursday, and tomorrow morning I will be posting another brand new song for download, called Drunk on June, which I let slip early to a friend and has already earned itself an interest in being covered as well as a middle finger from a rather legendary Austin songwriter. I know the feeling - it was quite the compliment!!! It's a fun one that I'm excited for you to hear! ;)

Hear every single song that I write!! 

This is the coolest thing ever you guys! I have finally found a way to share way more of my creative output with you. I write a brand new song every week, did you know?? And now you have the chance to hear every single one of them - for better or worse! (Knock on wood but so far they've mostly been for the better!)

I made a video to explain how you can be in my super awesome Song a Week Club, and please visit my Patreon page as well to see what it's all about. As I write this we're already 1/3 of the way to my first milestone - and bonus reward for you! Life is so freaking cool :)

Folk Gals for Flood Relief! 

These amazing gals, Daisy and Ashley Monical, and I teamed up with Concert Window last night and raised almost $600 for flood relief in Wimberley, TX! I'm feeling so humbled and overwhelmed by the amazing support shown, for us and for the folks who suffered big time this week, losing homes and, for some, loved ones.

A Long and Precious Road is off to the press!!! 


Wow, I finally made it!!! This record is aptly named.....this has been a Journey, with a capital J. I feel like I faced so much more of myself with this record than any other, and that was trying at times. I had a bigger vision for this one, a bigger vision for myself, and therefore everything really, really mattered. There was no half-assing, no "that's good enough" when it wasn't, no hurrying. And oh my god I wanted to hurry!!! To say I'm more proud of this record than any other I've done is, like, not even talking about the same thing. This record feels like the birth of my true self, the emerging of a light that I've kept hidden in the shadows, the surrender to a song that I will never stop singing. It's truth; it's my truth. And when all is said and done, that's what we have.

Thank you for your patience if you had it (and the keeping quiet of it if you didn't! :). This thing is finally real, and I think my good friend Ray Prim probably said it best: "Praise baby geezus!!!"

My praise and gratitude to every one of you. The long and precious road continues...

The Kickstarter campaign was a huge success!!! My biggest heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped this dream record come true. If you missed the deadline but would still like to preorder, click on the Donate button and send $10 for a digital download, $25 for a signed cd, or check out the other exclusive goodies offered via the campaign!

This songbird is forever grateful! Thank you! 


Back to Eden

Shawnee Kilgore and Joss Whedon

This is the long awaited collaboration EP of Shawnee Kilgore and Hollywood director Joss Whedon, who met via Kickstarter in 2014 when Whedon backed her campaign for A Long and Precious Road and earned himself a personalized song.

Big Giant Me was the first single they released that year, and Back to Eden the second in March 2016. The title track also inspired a gorgeous music video, directed by Whedon, including actress Ashley Johnson and Oscar nominated actor Richard Jenkins, released January 23rd.
