I’m excited to announce I have a new song available – “Think It Through.” It’s a reflection on all of the politics that has erupted around the COVID-19 pandemic and a reminder that we should look out for each other and try our best to keep each other safe. I recorded it at home and played all the instruments on the track.
It’s available exclusively by donating to the Spondylitis Association of America. Earlier this month, I participated in the virtual Banding Together Webathon benefit organized by Lazlo of blowupradio.com. He hosts the benefit each year as it’s a cause near and dear to his heart – his wife suffers from Ankylosing Spondylitis. Donations are used to fund research as well as programs and services for the community.
To receive your compilation of 65 exclusive songs from the NY/NJ music community, including my song, you can donate here – https://spondylitis.org/webathon
Thank you for donating and I hope you enjoy the compilation!
Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors have a new EP coming out. We tracked it live in the studio and we’re super proud of it. The first single is called “Whatever Gets You Through” and is now available on all of the platforms – check it out here https://linktr.ee/thetollcollectors. You can watch the lyric video for it on YouTube right here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydEl8B18jss
Here’s a cover I recorded this summer of Bob Marley’s, “Three Little Birds,” with a little help from my son. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
I’m just catching up with some posts that should’ve been up months ago! But never too late. Here are two songs from a virtual Wine and Song event back in June. One is an original – “Howlin’.” The other, a cover of Don Henley’s “End of the Innocence.” Hope you enjoy!
End of the Innocence – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ivyPPcmPNk
I hope everyone is staying self and healthy.
We had an interesting idea. Since everyone in Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors is also a singer/songwriter, why not cover a song that someone else in the band has written? So here are my two covers.
“Stone Meets the Sea,” one of my favorites by Christina Alessi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydFleq5aDyY
“Seventy Degrees,” by Jonathan Andrew. The song that is always stuck in my head in the best way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZeDJ7QoEpQ
Hope you enjoy them!
Here’s a new cover performed live from my couch – The Beatles “Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown).” I hope you enjoy it!

I’m excited to be back at Espresso Joe’s on Saturday. This time, I’m part of a Guitar Pull hosted by Lazlo. This is the 19th Anniversary of blowupradio.com and it will be great to share the stage with Jaime Rose and Keith Peters. The format of the Guitar Pull is engaging – we take turns playing songs, talking about them, and answering questions from Lazlo. I hope you can join us!
