Geli Wuerzner, who has been my musical partner and adventure buddy for two years, is parting ways with "A Lovely Ruckus". She will be calling the Pacific Northwest home for a while; and I will be heading to Austin to explore a new music scene. I wish nothing but the best for Geli. Her influence and musicianship shaped the sound of this project; and our trip to New Orleans gave the band its name. I am extremely grateful for all the good times we've had and amazing music we made.
