Here in NYC we just had one of the sorriest "blizzards" I have ever experienced. It was a major let down for me on a personal level, as I grew up in an area where we hold the snow fall record in the lower 48, depending on the year. I was looking forward to that taste of home... but so it goes.
I am writing to you because there are some good things cookin on the stove and wanted to share them with you. First and Foremost, my video for "Ticket Home" premiered on Noisey yesterday. I am super excited about this and could not have happened with out many your generous donations to my kickstarter last year. Thank you for being a part of the making of the video.
I am also planning a little tour through April. I hope to make it through a good portion of the South and Midwest. If you want me to play your town or living room...please reach out and will do my damnedest to try make it work. I will be updating my concert schedule periodically so please be sure to check back and see where I am going to be.
Annnnddd.. over the weekend of February 8th I will be out in LA. You can find me at the Silverlake Lounge on Sunday the 8th at around 8:30. I will be doing a free show. If you are in the area, it would make me happy to see you, for what it's worth.
I hope you all are doing well.
THURSDAY JANUARY 1ST 2015
I am still opening my eyes from last night. I made an extra large and strong pot of coffee to get my blood flowing.
It's early here in New York City. No one is stirring. There is something about having quiet in the city. It's so rare. So special. And it always disappears somehow without you noticing.
I wanted to take a moment and wish you all a Happy New Year. 2014 was a big year for me, it was the first time in my 32 years on this planet that I could call myself solely a musician.... not a bartender, not a server, a musician. That's a huge deal for me. It has been my dream for more years than I can or care to count. It won't last forever. I've been more fortunate than most and I know that I owe a huge chunk of this success to all of you and your support. Thank you for that. There are big things on the horizon for all of us. Let's make the most of what's coming down the road. Here's to working hard together the whole year through. Best of luck to you all.
Happy New Years.

TUESDAY NOVEMBER 25TH
I hope you all have a good Fall thus far. We are closing in Thanksgiving...and I will taking my usual route to Grandma's house: over the river, through the woods and all that other good stuff. I plan to get myself properly stuffed on pie and turkey... in that order.
It's been a quiet month around here. I elected to take some time off and work on some new material. Some of which you will be able to hear 12/13 at the Brooklyn Rod and Gun. Please be sure to come out. It will be my last show of the year and more importantly the Rod and Gun will be closing at the end of the year.. so get there to help me to say, Farewell to one of my favorite spots in Brooklyn.
There is some big news coming around the corner, so please stayed tune.

H A P P Y H A L L O W E E N !!!!
I am a day early... but I don't know where I will be tomorrow, so I though take advantage of this down time to wish you all very Happy Halloween. It is my favorite holiday in the middle of my favorite season. I hope you all get out and enjoy it.
A couple of note for you today: One, I will be playing a show at Johnny Brenda's in Philly this Saturday night. Should be a hell of a night... and who knows I may still be dressed up from the night before.
On a sadder note, one of my favorite venues(The Brooklyn Rod and Gun) will be closing down at the end of the year. This city changes so quickly in an unforgiving way, it often throws out the good with the bad. I will miss this space dearly. Please support their kickstarter campaign to save some of the memories from this very special space.
