Spring 2015 and Early Summer 2015 Recap 

Hey Folks!

Been a little while since I’ve had some time to catch you up on what’s been cooking in this neck of the woods. I’ve taken little breaks here and there, finished some new songs, and given those a bit of a litmus test at a few venues.

At the end of April, I had the great pleasure of attending and performing at LAUNCH Music Conference in Lancaster, PA! Made some new friends in the process. You like the rock music? Here are some folks that you should go out to see and buy their records. The Great Heights Band, Hot Jam Factory, Jonathan Tea.     

Over Memorial Day weekend, I had the chance to raise the decibel levels as a duo with Kelly Ann Beavers at The Electric Maid in Takoma Park, MD. If that name sounds familiar, you must know her from the fab rock quintet Bells & Hunters. Total Blast  supporting Austin, TX band The Sideshow Tragedy. Another band the author recommends. 

One being a new music venue called Villain & Saint in downtown Bethesda, MD on June 5th. It was a pleasure to support ilyAIMY that Friday evening (listen to them too, they are quite good). Go pop in there sometime. You might find yourself in there again and again. 

I have also gotten involved with a really neat charity based in Rhode Island called Wear Your Music. Guitar Strings turned into bracelets. How cool is that? If you would like to purchase a bracelet made with some of my strings, your dollars benefit the charity Musicians on Call. More details here

The EP is getting mixed. Yes! 4 Songs in total were tracked at Low Watt Recording in Savannah, GA. Merch will be available at shows and available online later this year. The jigsaw is coming together. Stay tuned. To all supporters of the Indiegogo Campaign, thank you for your patience! More updates headed your way soon. 

Upcoming shows in July! Will be at the Wonderland Ballroom in Columbia Heights on Thurs, July 9th. Opening for Simply Subtle. Please come out. I’d love to see your faces. It's a Thursday. Start your weekend early. 

Then I’ll be back in Harrisburg, PA on Saturday, July 11 playing at 2nd and Charles with my friends Jon Garcia & the Hopeless Romantics, Hot Jam Factory and J & the 9’s. Music starts at 1 PM. Pack a Lunch. Maybe some PixyStix. Dump em on a sandwich. You’ll get a rush one way or another.

Stay cool. This summer has already turned into a scorcher.

Thanks and talk to you soon!

March Update - Millennium, SS Cape May, and Much More! 

Hey Folks,

Want to give you an update as to what’s been going down in my neck of the woods in recent weeks. I’ve been able to be a part of some really cool stuff. In February, I performed at the Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg, PA.

Earlier this month, I had a chance to play a fun, low-key showcase with my friend Zach Parkman at the Black Squirrel in Adams Morgan, as well as friends Bells and Hunters at the Evening Star Cafe in Alexandria, VA. go check out both of these bands when they are out and about in your town! 

This past weekend, I performed at the Singer-Songwriter Cape May music conference in Cape May, NJ. What’s more, I had the chance to support the great Patty Larkin at Congress Hall in their ballroom on March 27. AMAZING! Played a few additional sets at Delaney’s and C-View Inn, which were just as enjoyable and rowdy. And made some new friends over the course of the weekends. Good times, indeed!

Taking a little break before playing some DC area shows. Come out to Green Island on 18th Street in Adams Morgan on Earth Day, April 18th. Will be playing with Finley Martin (from 0ppo), and on the 22nd of April at Kramerbooks in Dupont Circle. Check the Shows schedule for all the 411!

Hope to meet you at one or both of these shows!

Halloween Update: Recording New EP in Savannah in Early November! 

Hi Folks,

Things have been a bit quiet on the Western Front, but I've been staying busy by introducing a few new songs into the live setlist. One called "Comets" even showed its way into the setlist this past Monday night at Buzz Bakery. And by all accounts, it was well-received. 

Getting excited to head into the studio next week! Will be truckin on down to Savannah to get to work on an EP! Thanks to everyone who was able to support my Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign this Summer to help get this puppy off the ground!

Well, gotta go for now. Check out Twitter, Facebook, etc. and right here for updates on the EP!

Embrace the unexpected and Happy Mischief Night and Halloween!
