Steel Bridge Songfest Recap / American Songwriter Magazine! / Summer Dates (BIRTHDAY SHOW @ JOE’s PUB 8/23!!) / NEW record in the works!!

Well it’s hot in NYC…REAL hot!   There’s no denying that summer is officially here, and i’m ready to sizzle down with the rest of you!

Had a terrific time in Wisconsin at Steel Bridge SongFest a couple weeks ago.  This was my 9th year performing at the festival and attending the Construction Zone songwriter event at the Holiday Motel.. it’s always cool to see how the event evolves each year – this year the new studio/performance space – The Tambourine Lounge (a.k.a. the “Collaboratory”), and the Steel Bridge Radio, were AMAZING additions.  I got to co-write songs w/ some incredible talent!   Especially proud of the song i wrote w/ Graciana Holland, and Jimm McKever, and also one w/ the fabulous Louise Goffin…  Speaking of Louise, she was recently interviewed in American Songwriter magazine to talk about her new album coming out this month, and she mentioned me and a song called “Deep Dark Night of the Soul” we co-wrote together (w/ Corinne Lee) last year at Steel Bridge as being her favorite on the record.   Was quite an honor and a thrill!  Can check out the full article -> HERE

IN OTHER NEWS, I am excited to announce that i’ll be spending much of the summer months in the studio working on a new record!  I started up last week @ Galuminum Foil Studios in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (where i’m now residing incidentally), and things are coming along really nicely!  I’ve been posting updates (pics/vids) on Facebook & Twitter so go and follow if you wanna keep up with all the updates as they come..   If all goes to plan, i’ll have a new album to release before the year is up!

Hunkering down on the record I won’t be doing any proper tours this summer, though i will be getting out of town for a couple of regional festival dates.

*****AND, don’t forget the end of the summer BIRTHDAY SHOW @ JOE’S PUB!!!

    “Circle Camps Battle of the Bands” Benefit @ Rockwood (Stage 2)

    7-930Rockwood Music Hall (Stage 2)

    “Circle Camps offers free overnight camping experiences to young girls who have experienced the death of a parent.
    Our mission is to offer our campers the adventures and fun of living and playing together at overnight camps, while
    providing supportive environments in which they can share their grief. As the camp is entirely free, it is from the generosity of donors and fundraising efforts that we can offer this service to our campers. This year’s New York City fundraiser will be a Battle of the Bands. All of the money raised will be donated to Circle Camps in memory of Claire Blackman, my best friend’s mother, who passed away last year from a rare form of Parkinson’s disease. She was passionate about music (specifically Adam Levin and Paul McCartney) and was the
    inspiration behind making this year’s fundraising event a Battle of the Bands.

Jungle Jam in Costa Rica / Rockwood return Feb 26th! / “Royals” Cover / SPRING Festivals in NJ, upstate NY!!

Well, it’s been a hot minute!  I’m back in the big apple after a great trip to Costa Rica last month.  I went to attend Jungle Jam Fest in Jaco, and wound up getting in to play a set on their acoustic stage.  Also, got into a jam session at the “wrap party” of the fest, playing drums (yep) backing up a couple of incredible musicians, Ryan Montbleau and Zack Deputy.  Was a hell of a good time!
After CR, i spent some days in Florida on a writing retreat, and finished some new music I’m really excited about!
I’ll be debuting 2 of the new songs at the upcoming CG Band show at Rockwood Music Hall on Feb 26th.

Oh, and at our last show at Rockwood the band and I worked up a cover of the Lorde song “Royals”.  Well, it received quite a response!  Was overjoyed to have it be posted and tweeted about by Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go’s!
