#HEARTxSOULNJ Recap

JoshBicknell-SticksandStones

I had  such a great time playing at Sticks and Stones in Hawthorne, NJ for the Hope with Heart Benefit on Saturday, September 9th. The event raised over $2,200 for the kids.

The night was filled with art and music. I even sold two photographs. All proceeds went directly to the foundation. If you didn’t get a chance to make it to the event, it’s not too late. You can still make a contribution at www.hopewithheart.org.

Some photos of my photos!

And the setlist!

ARTxSOUL Opening Night Recap

What a night! On Saturday, August 6th I was pleased to be part of the opening of ARTxSOUL NJ Vol. 3. Curated by Rich Lopez, there was a DJ, dancing, cocktails, and a mix of photography, paintings, and digital media by talented artists. John Grayson, Nicole, Pelle, Ken Lucas, Steven Bley, and I have taken over the walls of Sticks & Stones, just below Artisan Kitchen in Hawthorne, NJ. Our art will be hanging through Friday, September 23rd.

I was proud to have sold 12 of my photos that night! I’ve reprinted and reframed them and my wall is back to looking like it did just as the evening started:

Espresso Joe’s Recap 11/14

What an amazing night at Espresso Joe’s!

I was absolutely blown away by the undivided attention of the audience. As a singer/songwriter, it’s rare to play a room where everyone is there to listen. Kudos to Ed Kok for creating such an environment at Espresso Joe’s. Ed, you’ve created something really special in Keyport, NJ.

Many thanks are also due to Brian from The Wag. Without his support, the show would’ve never happened. He was also responsible for making me the Feature Artist of the Month, inspiring me to print and frame my photography. His band writes super catchy songs that immediately put you in a good mood. Check them out here.

As the finale of their set, The Wag asked me to join them and sing “Here Comes the Sun,” by the Beatles. Here’s a photo.

Here-Comes-the-Sun

Here’s a photo of my setlist. I played two songs to open up the show and then came back later for a full set.

The place was packed!

My favorite part – performing with my sister and with Ardith from double-breasted. We played a cover of “Say Something,” by A Great Big World.

Just before closing the set with a cover of Modern English’s “Melt with You,” I performed a cover of The Beatles’ “Across the Universe” on ukulele.

As mentioned at the show:

  1. You can download my new digital record here.
  2. You can check out the online gallery of my photo collection here. From there, you can purchase prints, frames, digital licenses, etc.

Thank you all so, so much for attending on Friday. It was such a fun night!

 

Photography Show Underway

Saturday marked the first day of my first photography exhibit. It made me so excited to see all 23 photos hanging from two walls in Espresso Joe’s.

Below are photos of the collection on the walls. There are twenty 8×10 prints (in 12×15 frames) and three 12×12 prints (in 20×20 frames). All of them are available to purchase directly from the coffee shop now through the end of November.

I hope you can make it to the shop to see them. 50 West Front Street. Keyport, NJ.

Remember, I’ll also be performing a solo acoustic show there on Friday, November 14th.
