Shirts, pics, postcards – oh my!

If you were a contributor to the Kickstarter campaign that funded the record, “Love Ourselves”, in the spring of 2012…

You have not been forgotten. Special edition t-shirts, autographed 8x10s and postcards still have yet to be sent out.  If you were a contributor and are owed these things, they are coming your way in the very near future.

Like John Lennon said, “Live is what happens to you when you’re busy making other plans.” And ain’t he right!! 😀

CD Release show

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WOW. The CD Release show was a great success.  People even drove from  Michigan to be there!!  I’ve received nothing but awesome compliments about the band, the songs, etc.

And I’ve had a request to play more keytar… My assignment to myself is to write more songs that are appropriate to play on keytar.  I accept the challenge!

March 12th with David Petrelli

As I write this post, I’m taking a break from practicing Aerosmith’s “Dream On” on piano.  Imagine that… two pianos and singers are going to be performing this next week in Nashville at The Listening Room Café.  I’m proud of the new genre I’ve coined “Outlaw Pop”, which I think this upcoming show is absolutely going to be…

Dave and I met in college at Berklee, in our songwriting class taught by our dear teacher and friend, Henry Gaffney.  Dave and I were divinely put in the right class – Henry was a New York-based songwriter, Dave and I were piano-based songwriters, and we all spoke Billy Joel.  Dave put out an EP a couple of years ago, which you can get here.  We’re both in Nashville now, gi-tar town, finding our way as pianists and songwriters.

I’m very much looking forward to our show next Tuesday!

This is too great not to share…

My good friend Sarah Wilfong Joblin (www.sarahwilfong.com) and her husband Ted recently welcomed baby Kira into their lives. She’s apparently already a big fan of “Love Ourselves”…
