I'm a music-loving guy now in New York City, though my heart is deep in the American South. I am a writer, and my true loves are music and literature.


Largehearted Boy is all about sharing my love for music, literature, and popular culture. A true labor of love, the site features shorties (daily music, literature, and popular culture news). Other features include Book Notes which has authors create a mixtape relating to their latest book; Note Books where musicians I admire explore their literary side, Soundtracked where directors and composers discuss their film's soundtrack; and "The Largehearted Boy Cross-Cultural Media Exchange Program," where authors interview musicians (and vice-versa).


Though I've wandered all over the country, I seem to have found a home in Brooklyn.

Books, albums, magazines, whiskey, and other sundries for review consideration can be mailed to:

I bought the domain,, in late 2001, and launched the blog in January of 2002.


I originally bought the domain and hosting space to house an online presence for my Guided By Voices radio stream, GBV Radio. The weblog, which started as a fling has evolved into a vocation.

I love music, and I love books. Combining the two at Largehearted Boy makes me very happy.
