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.
I’m honored to be playing with 35 musicians gathering on the waterfront in front of the Manhattan skyline to pay tribute to the late, great David Bowie. this is going to be an event to remember. Don’t miss it!
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!

Banding Together, the online music festival to benefit the Spondylitis Association of America begins Friday, October 18th and runs through Monday, October 21st. It’s a three “stage” show, meaning that it is being hosted on three websites. There are five opportunities to listen to my solo live acoustic set during the course of the weekend:
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.

I took a trip out to Cedar Knolls, NJ last week to visit the WDHA FM studios with Hey Tiger. We did an interview and live video performance for Lindsay Klein’s new blog spotlighting NJ original music. The interview and performance should be posted in a few weeks. In the meantime, here’s a photo of us with Lindsay:
