The Latest...

2021 - year in review 

It's been a fascinating year to say the least.  I became a dad! Of twins!  So.. yea, that's taken up most of my time.  Despite these little balls of magic running around, I was able to get some work done.  

FOX took a liking to my productions and used some of my music for promos for The Moodys and Duncanville!  As these things go... I can't find the footage anywhere online, so you'll have to just trust me.  

 

 

 

 

A few weeks ago, my friend Anna Rose and I released a collaboration - Water Gun.  A tune I'm particularly proud of, I think it's a step in a musical direction I haven't traversed very much.  Please give it a listen if you have a minute! 

 

 

 

And in a few days, VCTRYS will release it's latest track! A cover of the queen Britney Spears classic, STRONGER, the tune will be part of a compilation record called #FreeBritney
     The #FreeBritney project is the culmination of efforts between Head Bitch Music and a collective of 19 different female identifying and non-binary artists that stand in solidarity with Britney Spears and survivors of conservatorship/guardian abuse, as well as abuse within the music industry. We will be releasing the #FreeBritney album on Nov 12th - the same day that Jamie Spears heads back into court to face further inquiries about his actions. We are donating 25% of the earnings to ACLU SoCal.

Also, I'm still doing quite a bit of work with Jon Bon Jovi, live and in the studio.  The pandemic has slowed a lot of things down, but we'll see you soon enough, I assure you.  

That's enough for now, I think.
Thanks for checking in!  

 

INAUGURATION 2021!! 

My phone has never blown up more in my life.  I've played some big stages in my day, but never something like this.  The Biden inauguration team got in touch with JBJ and asked if he'd be interested in performing during the Celebrating America broadcast on January 20th.  He called us, we flew down to Florida and filmed a little ditty.  It looked like this - 

What an incredible honor to be a part of that broadcast. It's an experience I won't ever forget.
Cheers!

2020 I forgot to mention... 

One of the many things I’m so thankful for this year was to have been a part of Bon Jovi‘s 2020 ‘tour’. By that I mean a few days of rehearsal, and then shooting/recording live versions of the new album on a soundstage in Nashville. The concert has since been released on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram etc… and songs have been aired on a bunch of network television shows. Check it out on your favorite personal screen! Search ‘On A Night Like This - Bon Jovi’ and you’ll be all set! 

The album is fantastic, and so much fun to play. I got a chance to stretch out on keyboards, guitar, mandolin, and vocals. I just tried to fit in wherever I was needed. Huge thanks to the band and crew for making me feel so welcome, and especially David’s tech, Bill, for helping me understand his spaceship of a keyboard rig.

I also had a chance to play on Jon Bon Jovi's Christmas EP - A Jon Bon Jovi Christmas! He got in touch with me and the crew to come over and play live together a handful of Christmas classics. 
After a joyous afternoon of playing through these tunes - he asked me to overdub a couple things at home for the release! 
It’s truly and honor and a great pleasure to play with these incredible folks whenever I get to. It’s something I do not take for granted. 

So, when you’re huddled around the fire (with hopefully VERY FEW family members), throw this record on and enjoy!

HOLD TIGHT! 

For my 5th single of this little project of mine, I partnered with my good friend Paul Loren.  He's an incredible singer, songwriter, pianist, producer, arranger and all around renaissance man.  I called back a few of my favorite people to play on this one as well.  Check it out wherever you stream your favorite music!

Carry You With Me 

Single #4 of this little project of mine is finished and out in the world!  My very good friend Hannah Winkler and I wrote this tune together over the past couple months.  It's been an absolute honor working with her on this project -


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With all the chaos and uncertainty going on in the world
When we cannot be together in times of trouble, when we cannot touch hands, hold each other, or wipe away tears, please know—
I carry you with me. Your heart is tied to mine. 
A little new music for your soul today, with love from me and Hannah
