I am a New Orleans-based author, folklorist, musician, and producer whose work focuses on Louisiana’s rich regional cultures. I have written two books -- Zydeco! (with photographer Rick Olivier), and Ernie K-Doe: The R&B Emperor of New Orleans -- along with chapters for academic anthologies, liner notes for over one-hundred albums, and articles for numerous publications including The Atlantic and The Wall Street Journal.
As of August, 2021, I have an M.A. in Musicology from Tulane University, in New Orleans. The title of my thesis is From 78s to Compact Discs: An Analysis of the Recordings by the Hackberry Ramblers, 1935–2004, and the Socio-Cultural Contexts in Which Their Music Evolved. I plan to turn this into a book.
