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!

Led Zeppelin Engagement 2.0 – Saturday, October 28th


I’m super excited to be part of the Led Zeppelin Engagement 2.0. Playing version 1.0 on the waterfront was amazing (you can watch me playing drums on “Hey, Hey, What Can I Do? on YouTube), but I suspect bringing this event indoors to Maxwell’s will make it rock even harder. The event features over 30 local musicians coming together to play the music of Led Zeppelin. Don’t miss it!
