It’s hard to believe that 2017 is coming to a close. I know that for many people, myself included, it has gone by incredibly fast. That being said, I'm really grateful for a wonderful year. I was a part of bringing Rocktopia to the East Coast... I loved my time touring with The Music of David Bowie (seriously one of the most enjoyable projects I've ever worked on)... My role as an artist has expanded into that of an in-demand music producer and mixer here in NYC. But more than anything, I’m feeling incredibly overjoyed because Aspen and I will soon be adding a new member to our family— a son, due late January 2018.
In light of these things and more, I’m grateful to the many friends and fans who have been a massive source of encouragement this year. To all those I met on the road: Thank you, each and every one of you. THANK YOU! Your words and prayers inspire me to continue pursuing my passion. You all are the best.
The snow is falling on a blustery mid-March morning, and I’m gearing up to begin rehearsals with the talented ROCKTOPIA team for an East Coast tour that begins later this March. If you are in a PBS market that aired theRocktopia- Live From Budapestconcert over the holiday season, then you have a pretty good idea of how unique this epic show is. I’m incredibly excited to be part of this whirlwind of a tour, which will visit 23 US cities. (View tour schedule here.) For those who aren’t able to attend any of these dates, make sure you follow me on Twitter and Facebook— as more domestic and European dates are being added!
While I've been quite active on Twitter and Facebook over the past several years, I was recently reminded that I hadn't been sending out a proper newsletter-- or even updating my personal "news page" on a regular basis. I think I've grown so used to receiving and sending information instantly within the social-media environment that I've missed-the-mark on updating solid content on my own site. So, without further ado-- there are a few new things that I want to make public... (especially if you aren't following me on social media-- which you should be because you're missing out on give-aways, time-sensitive announcements, and personal updates).
Hello hello! I hope that this newsletter finds each of you well, and that you're happily knee-deep into the excitement of the holidays.
Aspen, Sadie and I just returned to NYC after spending several days in New Mexico. While we truly had a great time with my extended family— and introducing Sadie to her cousins— it was great to return home to the magic and energy that only Manhattan can bring during the Christmas season.
