Dreamaway

“You can dream … and dream the dreamer.”

“Dreamaway” is the new tune I wrote with Duke Sims. It’s from our 3rd collaborative EP, Cahoots III. Have a listen:

Hope you enjoy the song, friends.

PRESENTING: Plumstuff

Hello, Friends – – –

A poet-robot … a chain-smoking seductress … a dying connoisseur. All of these characters and more make appearances in my new collection of poems and drawings, Plumstuff, out today.

Plumstuff is a reinvention of my out-of-print debut Plum Stuff. It contains 20 revised poems from that collection plus 40 new ones — and all-new drawings.

Poems and drawings from Plumstuff have appeared in The Walrus, Rattle, The Saturday Evening Post, The Wall Street Journal, Transition, The Feathertale Review, The New Quarterly, Quarterly West, The Antigonish Review and other outlets.

Here’s what the critics are saying…

“This is a book for those who truly love words.” – Cloud Lake Literary

“Bursting full in its depths.” – Cinnabar Moth

“Sit with these poems … give them a 2nd or third go-round. Let them marinate the brain a bit so you can fully savor the flavor.” – The Poetry Conversation

“A wonderful collection of poetry and drawings.” – Grist

There are many ways to get your hands on Plumstuff

In Canada, order autographed copies from The Penny University (my favorite indie bookstore/coffeeshop).

My own online store, The Rolli Shop, ships to every country on earth.

And there’s always Amazon USA, Amazon Canada and Amazon UK.

Whatever the method, I hope you enjoy the book. It was a labor of love and I couldn’t be happier with it.

Take care, friends.

🎸PRESENTING: My New EP, CAHOOTS II

Hello, Friends —

I’m happy to announce the release of CAHOOTS II, a 3-song indie rock EP co-written with Duke Sims, lead singer of the ubiquitous New York City band Shinobi Ninja.

Have a listen to the punk-poppy lead single, “Rock’s On the Brink of Extinction.”

You might like track two, too. “Muddafuggin” has an 80s vibe.

The third and final track, “I Wrecked My Guitar,” blends metal and jazz.

The EP is dedicated to my friend Mike, who recently and unexpectedly passed away.

CAHOOTS II is available on Spotify, Apple Music and most other streaming services. It was produced by Duke Sims and recorded at Willy B Labs in Brooklyn, New York. All vocals by Duke Sims. I supplied the cover art, too.

Thanks for listening, friends.

Cheers —
