The Molerhiisli Recordings were recorded during my LeseLenz writer's residency at the Molerhiisli in the town of Hausach in the Black Forest, Germany. The Molerhiisli (low German for "House of a painter") surprised me with its acoustic, and so after writing on a novel during the day I grabbed my guitar at night. Some songs I even wrote in Hausach (at the "Triangel" bar). I had fun playing them and listening to them - and I hope you do, too.

My thanks go out to the people of Hausach for their great hospitality.
I also would like to thank the unknown artist for his drawing of me I used for the cover. We did this as an exchange for a book of mine after a reading in a bar in Frankfurt, I believe. I'm pretty sure..
