I’m thrilled to have my photography featured as part of an exhibit and live music show on none other than Rex Manning Day! I’m featuring photos that are music-related, which is a neat way to merge two of my artistic ventures. Everything on display will also be for sale!

The opening party is presented by ARTXSOULNJ on Saturday, April 7th 9pm at Sticks and Stones in Hawthorne, NJ. Hope you can join in on the fun!

Tiny Desk Contest Entry 2018

I love watching NPR’s Tiny Desk Concerts. They are an awesome way to watch bands you love perform stripped down versions of their songs. They are also awesome for discovering new music!

A few years ago, NPR decided to launch a yearly Tiny Desk Contest, where emerging artists could record their own music in front of a desk. Last year, I recorded a stripped down version of my song, “Howlin.” This year, it’s a stripped down version of “A New Start,” complete with a live vocal loop during the bridge. Hope you enjoy it!

The Hutton Recap 2/24/18

I had such a great time on Saturday, February 24th playing for a great crowd at The Hutton in Jersey City Heights. Ty Tuschen joined me on guitar for an epic two and a half hour set with no break! We simply didn’t want to stop playing.

Here was the setlist.

What a fantastic night!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, April 21st when I’ll be playing at the Hutton again!

Appearance on the Latest Noise Podcast

This week, I had a great time chatting with Mike Kuzan and Max Feinstein on the Latest Noise podcast. Check out the episode to hear our conversation about my upcoming show at the Hutton, music, photography, the creative process, creating effective email newsletters, and also a live performance of my song “A New Start.”

Hope you enjoy it!

The Hutton – Saturday, Feb 24

Join me on Saturday at The Hutton, a hip little restaurant and bar in Jersey City, NJ. Come for some food and stay for some music. I’m happy to be sharing two sets of music with you. Ty Tuschen will be joining me on electric guitar for the evening.

We have originals as well as a wide range of covers to share with you. It’s been fun to re-imagine and interpret arrangements for songs ranging from Don Henley to Kendrick Lamar to Julia Michaels to Tom Petty and more! I’m still working out the full set list, but here’s the working song list.

And of course there will be plenty of looping and plenty of pedals involved between the both of us.

I really hope you can join us. Here are the details!
