Welcome to my new website! Over time I will be adding pages and things/music/stories that you will only find on this site, as I believe it should be. Otherwise, why would bother coming back? I had been with my former web host since about 2006 so since I am looking forward to building and creating new things such as a new album, working on new music, trying to go forward with booking my full band show outside of the comfy confines of Club Fox and for that matter the West Coast, or the U.S. itself, I decided it was time to change things up with a brand new website.
I am at a place in the general timeline of my life(yes I know that "ya never know") that I'm venturing toward (ta dum!) The Final Third! The way I look at it is if I can stay healthy enough for at least another decade I can really make a difference in the lives of a good number of people including my family, the musicians and their families, and of course YOU, while making a hell of a lot more music recorded and live!
You can be involved as an active participant or you can sit on the sidelines, whatever you choose please watch. I am hoping I can find as many people to become "active", which to me means that you either find something in the music that is intriguing enough that you'll want to share it with others, that you like the adventure, the "story" or the vision I have expressed enough that you want to support seeing it through, OR, you just love music and want the world to experience it as much as it possibly can. Any of the above reasons is good enough for me!
For those of you who choose to sit on the sidelines....I can only hope you will keep your eye out for what is happening in my circle and change your mind. If you have signed up to my email list you will get a monthly newsletter(yay!) with the latest trend in "my quest to be my best" so, truthfully, all the deserving musicians I work with can attain "their best" as well. The first thing any of you "active participants" can do is to preorder the upcoming "A House Full of Friends" CD or digital download and or buy my other music & merchandise which includes the beautiful "House Full of Friends" t-shirts.
If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area come out to see a show, particularly Sunday April 8 at Club Fox, which is the Album Release Concert and Significant Birthday Celebration! You can purchase tickets directly through this website through the menu tab of the same name. I have a fantastic musician roster, as usual(check out the page)
I understand the opportunity that lies before me. A certain clarity and need to explore the unknown while feeling confidence in the "known". As my dear deceased father said to me on a few ocassions "It's a great life, if you don't weaken." I feel a "fresh start" is about my getting back in the starting blocks for a race I've been already running my whole life. Things just look different nowadays. Deep breath.....GO!
