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.”

We are thrilled to be featured in one of the recent episodes of LIVE at NLK STUDIO: THE LATEST NOISE. Check it out on YouTube here, or in the embed below. We play a live three-song set – “Where the River Flows,” “North Country Snow,” and “Leave the Light On.” It was such a pleasure to work with Courtney, Jack, Mike, and the whole crew. Enjoy!
As always, you can listen to our record, Raindrops and Watercolors, anywhere you stream music.
I recently recorded this cover of Pink Floyd’s classic as part of a virtual Art, Music, and Poetry celebration hosted at my job. Hope you enjoy it!

Here’s a cover I recorded this summer of Bob Marley’s, “Three Little Birds,” with a little help from my son. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂
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 hope everyone is staying self and healthy.
We had an interesting idea. Since everyone in Christina Alessi & the Toll Collectors is also a singer/songwriter, why not cover a song that someone else in the band has written? So here are my two covers.
“Stone Meets the Sea,” one of my favorites by Christina Alessi. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydFleq5aDyY
“Seventy Degrees,” by Jonathan Andrew. The song that is always stuck in my head in the best way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZeDJ7QoEpQ
Hope you enjoy them!
I had a great time playing for a very attentive audience at Espresso Joe’s in Keyport, NJ on Saturday, November 15th. The venue is now original-only and it was great to dust off a few older originals for this set. Thanks to some handy iPhone bootlegging by my dad, you can now watch the entire show on YouTube. Play the embedded playlist below or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.
Just in time for the deadline, I recorded and submitted my entry for NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest 2019. Recorded live at my home, here’s a performance of my original song, “Knocking Down My Front Door.” If the video does not embed below, here’s a direct link to watch it on YouTube. https://youtu.be/5AVC9huNZiA
Thanks for watching!
