'Tis the season! In December 2013, I released "Into Christmas," a collection of holiday tunes featuring six original songs, along with six classic covers. I've always been a sucker for Christmas music and I really enjoyed making this record. Eight of the songs were recorded with Brian Pothier, two with Marty Rifkin and two more with Mark Browne. All wonderfully talented guys and fabulous humans. If you're in the spirit, have a listen on my Music page. And if you like what you hear, you can purchase it via Paypal, snail mail, or come out to a gig and pick one up. They make great stocking stuffers!! Thanks & Happy Holidays, Everyone!
Marty Axelrod is one of my favorite songwriters on the planet and he's hosting a songwriter's round at WitZend in Venice (1717 Lincoln) on Tuesday, November 11 @ 7PM. David Lucky, James Hurly and I will be in the round with Marty and I am honored to be part of the lineup. I'll be playing some new songs and, with any luck, Marty will join me on a few tunes -- we may even play a song we wrote together. There's a $10 cover charge, and that allows you to stay for the fabulous Cynthia Carle (cynthiacarlemusic.com) after our round.
Come on out, have some dinner and drinks and support your local talent at this very cool venue. You'll be glad you did! For a small sample of Marty's tremendous talent, check out this video featuring one of his more recent tunes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XKr4rIA9o_w
The First Annual Blue Rose Ball Benefit Concert on Saturday, June 14, at the Sebastiani Theatre in Sonoma was fantastic! The event raised $25,000 to benefit the Joseph Capone Scholarship Fund supporting the Old Adobe School in Sonoma. The musical lineup was phenomenal and I was honored to be a part of it. I'll be posting some pix on my photo page soon. You can check out more about the Blue Rose Ball here: http://www.blueroseball.com Looking forward to next year's show!
Thanks again to all of you who came out to the Ben Taylor show at the Coach House on March 9th. It was a great turnout. Ben's set was fabulous and what a super cool guy he is!

I had a blast opening for the wonderful Kate Taylor (the sister of James Taylor) at McCabe's in Santa Monica on April 6th. I just cannot say enough good things about Kate! Brian Pothier, Bill Cinque and I had such a great time playing, and Kate's set was fantastic. I love her stories, her songs, her great wit, and of course, her band! Thanks to y'all for coming out!
