Hello Friends! 

This Sunday, Sept 7th at 7pm I will be returning to Molly Malone's to play their Nashville Nights series. Joining me once again on guitar will be my good friend and co-writer/producer Jeffery Marshall. Also joining us for several songs will be some of my other favorite co-writers and musicians: Courtney Leigh HeinsClayton Severson, and Rye Randa. We will be playing a set of new songs, many of which will be on my upcoming ep. We are up first so will start on time. If you are in the LA area I hope you will come join us. 

Hello friends,

Friday night, June 27th, I'll be doing my first live solo show in a couple of years. I've had the pleasure and honor of sitting in with friend's bands here and there but as you know I have been focusing on writing and recording these last couple of years. I am really looking forward to getting back to playing my own shows and performing many of those new songs.

Hello Friends!

Hope all is well with you and yours. It’s been a few months since the last official newsletter but as usual I’ve been busy making music. There are new recordings, new songs to come, and even a video, so let’s get to the news:

I have recently completed a second song for my upcoming country cd with co-writer, guitarist and producer Jeffery Marshall called You Can’t Unpull A Trigger, and I’m super proud of this one. Jeff and the guys created a kick-ass track that you will want to turn up to 11 ;-) Once again Andrew Megna played drums and Kevin Chown added bass, Bryan Dobbs, who you last heard on my song Memory Lane, played both banjo and dobro, and Clayton Severson added killer harmonica and backup vocals. I am so lucky and grateful to get to work with such talented guys. Jeff and I have a few more songs in the works for the EP and I’m hoping to release it later this year. In the meantime let me know what you think of You Can’t Unpull A Trigger!

Last week I attended a town hall meeting at The Recording Academy - Los Angeles Chapter with Rep. Judy Chu and others. It seems like there are very few times when you can say that someone in Congress "gets it" but this was one of them. There are several issues artists and songwriters are up against in the fight to be compensated for our creations. Too many people think it's ok to use music for free to sell billions of dollars in advertising, products, TV shows, etc., that only go in the pockets of big business, radio stations, websites, tech companies and sadly some TV production companies and networks who should know better. As someone said last night, music sells everything but music. Sad but true. The bs rock star life you see on TV and movies is NOT the reality of 99% of music creators so if you truly love music I urge you not to buy into that thinking and learn a little about how music creators are paid. If you are a musician who doesn't understand how you are paid for your recorded works I strongly urge you to understand this portion of the business. It's not that hard and the info is available through many reputable sources including GRAMMYs on the Hill, Music First Coalition, I Respect Music Org, your PRO, etc.
