Hi kids!

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer. It's been way too hot here in La La Land this last week but looks like it will get back to something resembling normal this week. It also appears fire fighters have gotten the upper hand on one of the largest fires ever to hit the center of the LA Basin and we are all grateful for that. The constant stream of natural and man made disasters takes a toll on us all and music is one way to find some joy and sometimes raise a little money to help those in need - see below. So let's get to the news!

The Blue Mountain Review/Southern Collective Experience - I just had the pleasure of being interviewed for the latest issue of The Blue Mountain Review (Issue 8) regarding my music and songwriting process, especially lyrics. I love this magazine. It celebrates all forms of art from all over the world and in particular the written word. The magazine is just one of the projects from The Southern Collective Experience founded by award-winning writer and poet Charles Clifford Brooks III

West Coast Songwriters ContestThe song Whiskey Charm, written by me and Jeffery Marshall, just received an Honorable Mention in the 2017 West Coast Songwriters International Song Contest. Ours was one of only two songs in the Country Category after the winning entry. Whiskey Charm is one of my favorites from the No Longer Broken cd and I hope to have a music video to go with it later this fall.

Saturday, Sept. 16th, 5-10pm The Saturday Evening Social Club. I've wanted to play one of these wonderful house concerts hosted by the multi-talented Lauren Adams for the last couple of years and I am very excited to finally be able to do so. I will be opening the show with John DePatie and Carla Buffa joining me. Lauren's band, with Nick Kirgo, will be playing that night as will Spork & Foon featuring Marty Axelrod, Ed Tree, Mark Pocket Goldberg, and Debra Dobkin. There will be lots of wonderful food and conversation with the artists and other guests, and you may BYOB, and a dish to share, a grill is provided as well. To reserve your spot please send an email to saturdayeveningsocialclub@gmail.com and join the event on FB: The Saturday Evening Social Club for all the latest info.

Sunday, Sept. 17, 7:30pm and Tuesday, Sept. 26, 7:30pm Benefit Concerts for Hurricane Harvey - I'm working with bookers Jay Tinskey and Robin Dewey, along with Shayna Fiore on two Hurricane Harvey Relief Benefit Concerts to be held here in LA with over 20 artists at each event, silent auction with some amazing items, and lots more. The three charities that will benefit are The Greater Houston Community Foundation and Best Friends Animal Rescue. I will be performing a song at each event as well. $10 suggested donation at the door but any amount is welcome and we will have a way for people to donate even if you can't make the event.

KBJB Radio/Original Artist Spotlight - In July I was interviewed by Buck Whiteway on his show, Original Artist Spotlight, on KBJB Radio out of my home state of Connecticut. We had a great time and you may listen to the interview on my website here: KBJB Radio Interview.

More events are coming but that's all the news for now. No Longer Broken is available at iTunes and CD Baby, physical copies of the cd are available at CD Baby where you can actually speak to a real person here in the US by calling 1-800-Buy-My-CD! Don't forget to leave a rating or short review wherever you purchase or listen to my music as it greatly increases the chances of my music being discovered by others. Here is the link to my Facebook Music Page if you'd like to join me there. Be sure to choose "get notifications" if you do, so you don't miss anything. I've been more active on my Twitter page and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube page as well.

Hi everyone,

Looks like the last time I gave you an update was before the holidays. I hope everyone is doing well. I mostly wanted to let you know about a special show I have coming up this week. I'm really looking forward to returning to Genghis Cohen this Thursday, Feburary 16th at 8:30pm. I'll be joined by Jeffery Marshall and Carla Buffa for an acoustic set of songs from No Longer Broken as well as my other releases and we'll be doing a special song that I haven't done live in quite a long time. Hope you will join us. We will start on time so be sure to get there early, especially if you will be having dinner.  

In other news, I recently received a nice review of both the No Longer Broken CD and Every Song Is You music video from CA Rocker Magazine. A very cool online music magazine, which covers all styles of music and has some fantastic photography. You should definitely check them out. Actually, editor Donna Balancia will be at my show this week taking photos and I can't wait to see what she comes up with.

Good lord, how is it the holidays again?! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was lucky to spend it with some of the same good friends as last year. Along with some awesome food there was a round of Cards Against Humanity. A game that is so wrong but so darn funny!

As you may or may not know I have a Special Merchandise page on my website. This is where you will find special one of a kind merchandise, everything from signed CD's and limited edition posters to jewelry made by me. Also coming in the future is some of my photography. 

For Christmas 2016 every order from the Special Merchandise page will receive an extra gift of a download card of either Believe or Hallelujah and signed 5"x7" No Longer Broken postcard. All US orders placed by December 18th will arrive in time for Christmas!

I use PayPal for all purchases for your security. You may also contact me with any questions before placing an order by using the contact box on my website. Remember when you purchase a CD, a digital song, a poster, or attend a concert by an indie artist you are supporting a small business and that support is greatly appreciated.

 

Also, don't forget that I have four Christmas songs available at iTunes and CD Baby: Please Come Home For Christmas, It Wasn't His Child, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, and Winter Wonderland

You may watch the lyric video for Please Come Home For Christmas on my YouTube page. If I can get it together this week I'm trying to create one for It Wasn't His Child as well. ;-) There is a holiday playlist on my YouTube page with over two hours of holiday music for you to enjoy. I will be creating one for Spotify as well.
