Recap: The Hutton 6/16/18

It was a beautiful night for an outdoor acoustic set. I had a wonderful time playing in the back patio at The Hutton for friends, family, and more. I debuted a new original song and tried out a couple new covers.

See below for some awesome photos captured by my sister and the setlist!

Facebook Live Set from 12/27/17

Last week, I decided to test out Facebook Live by performing a live solo acoustic set. I wasn’t sure what to expect, so I planned to perform a quick, mini three-song set. Soon into it, I realized just how interactive the platform could be. I saw people joining, commenting, sharing… it was really quite amazing to see it all happening while I played in front of my phone from the comfort of my own home.

I wound up playing seven songs, totaling about 35 mins. I hope to do it again sometime soon, but in the meantime you can watch last week’s recording below. I’ve included embeds and links to both Facebook and YouTube.


  1. Silent Night
  2. A New Start
  3. Walking On
  4. Loveland
  5. Don’t You Ever Want to Be In Love?
  6. Melt with You
  7. Howlin’

What a fantastic little spot we found in Montclair, NJ. It feels like a living room, charms you like a coffee shop, and tastes like a restaurant. Ardith and I had a fantastic experience playing for a packed house of family, friends, and new friends. Really enjoyed this gig!

What a great night at Northern Soul in Hoboken, NJ! I had a fantastic time with fellow songwriters Christina Alessi, Jon Andrew, and Adam McDonough. It was so great to collaborate on each others’ songs. We threw in some awesome cover songs for good measure.
