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.
