Hello friends! The beginning of 2018 has been fairly restful, musically, and I’m excited for another creative year.

Tonight, Friday, February 9th, I’m playing a special show at The Range in Ithaca, NY with Thru Spectrums, featuring many special guests. A lot of my extended musical family will be joining in and singing over the course of the evening. Looking forward to it tremendously. Music starts at 9:30, and it’s free!

On the heels of Noon Fifteen’s debut record release this past December, and our accompanying podcast and videos, we’re gearing up for more activity this year as we welcome our new drummer into the fold. We’ll be debuting our new (old) friend at Atlas Bowl in Trumansburg, NY on Monday, February 19th. Music starts at 6pm with Citizen O’Kane, and we’re up not long after.

I’ve also been in the studio recording some music by singer/songwriter Joe Gibson, a hidden treasure of the Ithaca music scene. I’m looking forward to releasing that later this year.

Looking ahead, March will kick off with performances by Julia Felice and the Whiskey Crisis (at reasonable hours for grown-ups!) and more from Noon Fifteen and Thru Spectrums. More on that soon.

Later this year, in addition to performing with my main projects, I’m excited to do some stripped-down duo shows with Mandy, as well as some piano/percussion performances with my buddy J.P. Feenstra. More on that when we get closer — it will be a really fun opportunity to pound a piano and sing my own songs again, especially with J.P. adding his signature flavor. There will be improvisation, and possibly a samba whistle.

Other than that, look forward to more videos, podcast episodes, and (of course) recorded music as the year goes on. Things are good on the creative front. I imagine I’ll stay pretty busy… especially with Mandy and me getting hitched in October.

More news to come. Gigs and other news will be posted at Thanks as always for reading!
