I just got back from a great writing/performing trip to Sweden.


I did a concert with Lars Söderberg and Jonathan Westling under the artist/band name, LOKKO. Lars and I formed LOKKO earlier this year and this is our first live performance as the band. We appeared at the New Directions Festival in Luleå, Sweden. Later in the trip I went to Stockholm for a few days and wrote with some amazing writers. More on that later. Here’s a link to the LOKKO concert:
