My new single, “Walking On” is available for download today! This single is a modern foot-stomping blues featuring Ty Tuschen on electric guitar. I will write more about the creation process for this recording in the coming days, but for now you can download it (pay whatever you want) from Bandcamp.
Join me on Saturday afternoon at one of the best places in New Jersey to listen to acoustic music – Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ. I play at 4pm, but be sure to get there at least by 3:30pm to hear fellow Toll Collector Jonathan Andrew play, too! The entire day of music runs from Noon-10pm.
This show will benefit the Spondylitis Association of America, which provides research and services to over 2.7 million Americans that suffer from this arthritic condition. In the past, I’ve contributed to the online webathon, but this year it’s going to be a live show! Can’t wait. Hope you can make it too!
PS – You can also download the Compilation Album to help benefit the cause. I have contributed a brand new recording. Check out track #3 on the album!

September 2016 – It was a month of memorable shows. A night where Jonathan Andrew and I opened up for our own band with solo acoustic sets. A three and a half-hour show at Finnegan’s. And more. Here are some photos to help preserve the memories.
Jonathan Andrew and I will be opening up for our own band! Jonathan will start the night, accompanied by Ty Tuschen. Then I’ll play a set, also accompanied by Ty. Then, Christina will join the stage, I’ll move behind the drum set, and the Toll Collectors will close out the night. All the while, you can check out artists from ARTxSOUL, Vol. 3 on the walls… which includes my photography!

On Tuesday, June 14th Ty, Ardith, and I played the Pianos Upstairs Lounge. We had a nice turnout and a great time playing for everyone. It’s such a joy to play music with such talented and down-to-earth musicians. Thank you for joining me, Ty and Ardith!
Here we are, getting our music on.
Here’s the setlist.
And here’s a live video of us playing my original song, Howlin’. If the embed doesn’t show below, you can watch it on YouTube here.
Join me on Tuesday, June 14th as I play a set of my original music. I’m so excited to be sharing the stage with Ty Tuschen on electric guitar and Ardith Collins on cello. Pianos is a great little place on the lower east side of Manhattan. The show is in the Upstairs Lounge, it’s free, and it starts promptly at 7pm!

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!
Thanks to my sister for the awesome photo above. You can check out some of her other work right here.
