On Sunday March 12th, I was joined by Ty Tuschen on electric guitar for a set at the Bowery Electric Map Room. We debuted a new song, which is now officially the longest song title in my catalog.
Here’s the setlist.
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.
Hope you enjoy it!
Here’s my entry into NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest! It’s an acoustic version of my song “Howlin’.” Hope you enjoy it!

After a battle with traffic on the NJ Turnpike extension, I was able to make it to Lazlo’s Banding Together live acoustic music marathon at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ. If you haven’t done so already, please download the compilation record to donate to the Spondylitis Association of America.
For those of you who missed the performance, you can now listen to a live recording below. If the embed doesn’t appear below, click here to listen directly on Soundcloud.
Here is a nice photo captured by Lola.
And here is the setlist.
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!

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!
Join me for a night of music at Finnegan‘s in Hoboken, NJ from 10pm-1am. I’m starting the night by doing my singer/songwriter thing and then moving back behind the drums to play with Christina Alessi and the Toll Collectors! In other words, I’ll be the opening act for my own band.

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!
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.
