New Music (No Foolin’)
Apr 2017 01

Today is the release of the first of several recording projects I’m unveiling this year, Julia Felice and the Whiskey Crisis’s Devil on Your BackI’ve been playing with Julia and friends since a few months after she released her debut Diving for Falls in 2015, and I’m excited and proud of the creative chemistry that resulted in this new LP. I play bass, sing some backup vocals, and provide some organs, electric piano, and other keyboard sounds alongside Julia’s piano playing. I also contributed to two tracks as a writer, the Leon-Russell-meets-Black-Sabbath “Albatross,” and the acoustic ballad “Here It Comes Again” (the latter co-written with Julia).

You can check out some of the kind write-ups on the album that have been appearing on the interweb, or you can just listen and buy the album on BandCamp or

We’ll be celebrating the release tonight (April Fool’s Day) at The Range in Ithaca, New York, with music from 9 into the wee hours of the night.

My performance schedule is ramping up into the warmer months, and you can keep track at And coming soon — new releases from Thru Spectrums and Noon Fifteen.

In fact, here’s a live performance by Noon Fifteen from WVBR’s Tuesdays with the Band this past January. This project is going to be utilizing video for musica great deal, so subscribe to our YouTube channel to keep up to date.

Happy New Year from SBL!

It’s been a few weeks since 2017 began, but my Christmas tree is still up, so I stand by my greeting.

It’s been some time since I’ve sent out a music e-mail. It’s not for lack of activity — in fact, 2016 was one of my busiest yet for performing in my various bands and projects (as well as a number of sit-ins and guest spots), and I also spent a lot of time in the recording studio.

But 2017 promises to have a little more to show for it. [..]
