I Am Almost Definitely Not A Spy

Very happy autumn, everyone! The heat is definitely coming down, although hurricane season here in the northeast is in full swing. I say this because it was a little touch and go getting Belmont Porchfest in a week ago. However, I had a great time, and then I immediately boarded a plane for the Rhineland,… More »

On Creativity and Staying Human

I have something illicit and a little “purple” to share with you. (But first shameless plugs, because I really want to see you and play music for you (and I’ll bring this all together again in a minute). Here are all my upcoming “bespoke” shows (in addition to my open mic appearances): I really love… More »

Upcoming Events

Just a quick little item today to hopefully help you mark your calendar for a few upcoming shows and events through the next few months.  I’ll be adding more, but it occurred to me that there’s a nice critical mass starting to build up here: August 5 – Next Saturday I’ll be joining my friends… More »

The People That You Meet

My hand is finally (mostly) healed, so I’ve been taking advantage of the opportunity to get back out and play more, which has reminded me of the blessing of community that comes with being a performing and writing musician.I know I have written before about Terrance Reeves, Danielle Pinals, Andrew Geano, and our open mic… More »

(And if you’d like to help me keep making more tuneage and get some exclusives along the way, please consider joining my Patreon!) First, let’s give you the… More »

Thank You to the Kind Voices

“Please tell me this isn’t like when your mom sings in church or something,” my friend said. I, the practicing musician of over 40 years and semi-professional musician with a few hundred appearances under my belt, replied “Hunh?” in my most coherent and intelligent way. “Yeah, I mean it’s a great hobby and all…” Dear… More »

No Idea What I’m Doing

It’s been a little while since I’ve written. I know that. Life tends to get in the way of a lot of things that I would like to do these days, but that’s in no way complaining on my part. I’ve had the distinct pleasure of being back-and-forth to Europe, spending some time with people… More »

The Last Few Live Shows of 2022

Hi, everyone!  We’re ending the year better than we started, and instead of writing an end-of-year recap, I want to share with you a nice capstone for 2022. I had the pleasure of performing in two fantastic live shows this past month that exemplify the range of what is possible as a performing musician, and… More »

A Showcase, A Video, and Being in Thin Air

I just spent four days in Bogotá, Columbia, and I’m now writing this at Toronto Pearson Airport (because of course the straightest line between Bogotá, Colombia goes through Canada, and I find no fault with that). Bogotá sits at about 8,500 feet above sea level, so while I have loved the city and the scenery… More »
