Happy Valentine's Day! To celebrate, I recorded a ballad by one of my favorite Irish writers; and you can watch the video HERE. The Song With No Name by Shane MacGowan & The Popes is part of a new EP coming next month (just in time for St. Patrick's Day).
Home studio is up and running! (My new work uniform is pajamas.)
A piano won’t fit in my studio, so I got a melodica.
New year. New music.
HNY from Woody Guthrie

My new album, Begin the Glimmer, was made in Memphis, TN. I'll be playing those songs and more TONIGHT Saturday, November 10th at Otherlands in Midtown Memphis! Full band performance featuring George Sluppick on drums and Landon Moore on bass. Special guest Tony Manard opens the show.
Begin the Glimmer was recorded by Harry Koniditsiotis at 5 and Dime Recording; and mixed by Doug Easley at New School Media. Alex Greene from The Memphis Flyer writes, "it sports one perfectly crafted tune after another; the end result is a shimmering folk-pop gem that leaps from the speakers".
