SUMMER IN THE WINE COUNTRY! - June 9, 2014

Hey Everybody,

Yep, it's here... summertime! Sunshine, fresh air, dining on the patio, and live music outdoors! It looks like a fantastic summer is shaping up for a series of performances in wine country for me. As performance dates are being added to the calendar, there will be an opportunity for you to come and hang out with me in the gorgeous Sonoma, Napa, and Livermore Valley wine countries. So get your group together, plan a day, and come experience some great wine, food, and music! There is nothing better than spending a day in the beautiful wine country... except for me being fortunate enough to spend the day with you! See you in Wine Country!

Big Love to Ya!

Stay tuned...

Just Touching Base... - January 31, 2014

Hey Everybody,

 

Things are starting to take shape for 2014. I recently attended the NAMM Show for the first time in many years, and it was very productive. I'm currently being considered for an endorsement deal, made some great contacts, saw some great performances and products, and got to hang out with the guys for a weekend! I just landed a performance venue in San Francisco that has some amazing history. I'll be performing every Wednesday at John's Grill, the place where Dashiell Hammett regularly would hang out while he was writing The Maltese Falcon. John's has been open since 1908 and some of the bay area's top musicians are currently performing there as well. So having the opportunity to perform there is quite special. If you happen to be in the great city of San Francisco on any Wednesday evening please stop in and say hello!

Happy New Year Everybody!

I'm looking for a great year in 2014. With all of the challenges that we are faced with in this life, I still have very high expectations for my career as well as my personal life. I'm praying for growth, change, inspiration and success. For those of you that will, you are more than welcome to pray with me! The Wine Country project is moving along nicely and be on the lookout for WC2 this summer. There are a few new projects coming from Miracle House this year, saxophonist Andre Barton, formerly with Earth Wind & Fire is in currently in the studio with the single to be released for Valentine's Day. Harpist from the hood Destiny Muhammad is also in production at Miracle House with a vibrant new song that will inspire the masses! Keyboardist Jonathan Johnson has a new single "Killer Joe", and we are in the final mixing stage with the single to be released in a few weeks. Drummer Brandon "Mr. Pocket" Ransburg is in pre-production with a project due for release in the fall of this year. Last but not least, super silky vocalist Greg Ballad is in production with something for the lovers scheduled for release this spring. So as you can see there is a lot going on and I'm doing what I love and that's making music!

The year has started off very well in spite of the current economic situation that seems to touched everyone I know in one way or another.
