I recently recorded this cover of Pink Floyd’s classic as part of a virtual Art, Music, and Poetry celebration hosted at my job. Hope you enjoy it!

I recently participated in a songwriter challenge for The Latest Noise Wine and Song where I composed an original song to a spoken word poem. I was sent the poem only – I wasn’t told who wrote it and didn’t have access to the poet’s reading. Two other songwriters were sent the same poem. The result? Three very different song interpretations! The poem is “Disbeliever” by Sandra Ann. Check out my version in the video below.
If you want to see the complete segment with all three song interpretations plus the poet’s reading, check out the full Wine and Song video below. In case the link doesn’t start in the correct spot, go to 14:20 to see the beginning of the challenge.
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!

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!
