Well that was awesome. It’s hard to believe I’ve been making music with ChristinaAlessi for 20 years now. It’s so effortless that it feels like it must’ve been a lifetime or more. I couldn’t be more proud of her at this moment, opening for Joan Osborne! And I couldn’t have been more proud to share it with her on stage.
Here are some video clips from my Instagram from our performance!
Just before the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors filmed a live video performance in the cliffs overlooking Manhattan. Here is our original song from that performance, “Lost Tonight.”

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.
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 recently participated in Wine and Song’s virtual showcase on Tuesday, June 9th. Here are the two songs I recorded for the event. First is a cover of a Radiohead song, “The Trickster.” Second, a cover of “Call Me a Fool,” by Perlo. Enjoy!
