I had a fantastic time playing at the Hutton on April 20, 2019. It was a rainy day, but the sun cleared in time for a clear evening and a nice crowd. I played two hours – a mix of covers and originals, including some new ones that I tried on for size and will likely bring to future gigs.
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!
What a great night at Northern Soul in Hoboken, NJ! I had a fantastic time with fellow songwriters Christina Alessi, Jon Andrew, and Adam McDonough. It was so great to collaborate on each others’ songs. We threw in some awesome cover songs for good measure.

The whole gang!
