I hope your new year is off to a good start and I hope you are braving this cold weather in a warm cozy place.
It’s funny, ever since I started working in educational publishing I’ve met people of extraordinary talents and who have an artistic pursuit outside of the day job. Maybe it’s the nature of the jobs in the industry – writers, designers, coders, creators. We are committed to some form of creation all day and then somehow we still have a need to create outside of the confines of the office.
At least once a year, my company likes to celebrate this. We have an Art, Music, and Poetry Expo where we hang artwork, eat, drink, rent a stage, and have a show. Poetry readings, musical performance, dance… it started a couple of years ago and now it’s become a Thing.
So here’s a video of my performance. I played an original and a cover: “Knocking Down My Front Door” and “Happier” by Marshmello and Bastille. Hope you enjoy it!
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!
