Show October 24th

I’m playing my first solo gig in a long while.  I have been playing gigs constantly since I was 14, and I needed a little break, but I’m really enjoying getting back to it.  Rehearsals have been going really well, and I’m starting to feel in command of my material again.  If you’re in the NY area, come down.  Travis Larson Band and Ad Astra are also on the bill.  Both are incredible bands to see!  7PM at KJ Farrel’s 242 Petit Ave. Bellmore, NY 11710

Quick updates

I’ve had a very busy year in the studio.  In the last year and a half or so, I’ve written 150 pieces for film and television and I’m also working on some new music for a solo release.  I will update here as soon as new music is ready to be released.  This music is a bit more on the rock side of things, and some of the most straightforward songwriting I’ve done.  I’m enjoying this direction and I’m excited to share new music with the world!  In the meantime, you can check out my most recent record “The Eightfold Path” on just about all digital platforms.  I suggest using Bandcamp, because they offer lossless versions of the music.  They also are offering my first record “Pathos and Logos” there as well.  More updates soon!
