Pickin' and a Grinnin' 

Howdy, y'all. I hope this post finds you happy and healthy. I am out of my funk and letting the sunshine hit my face. 

I had my first rehearsal with AJ Jansen yesterday and it was sensational. AJ has some serious talent and even running through a few songs with just an acoustic guitar proved to be wonderful. Keep an eye out here an her website for future dates coming soon. 

My dear friend Justin Panigutti is heading out for a tour with his Van Morrison tribute show. I caught a show in Eastern Mass last week and was impressed all over again with Justin's talent. This guy should be on stages all over the world. Check him out when you get a chance; you won't be disappointed. 

There is still much Summer left, music people, so get out and hear a band. Buy a CD. Put a five in the tip jar. Have dinner at the venue. Enjoy....

See you soon. 

Peace. 

The Blues Like a Shadow... 

...they follow me all day long. 

Good Tuesday, music people. I hope you're doing wonderfully on this summer day. I'm feeling the blues a bit. Life is a series of ebbs and flows, isn't it? The balance: good with the bad. Light with the dark. Happy with the sad. It's what fuels a bluesman's music. I'll write a few words down, play a couple of riffs... All will be better. 

Send some sunny vibes my way, please. I'll do the same for y'all. 

Peace. 

New Project 

Happy Saturday, music people. It's sunny here in Western Mass; I hope it is where ever you are. 

I'm happy to announce a new music project for me that I'm very excited about. I'm working with a super-talented country artist, AJ Jansen. AJ is from the CT area but has extensive Nashville experience and is very familiar with high-level music industry. AJ is an iHeart Radio award winner and when you get to hear her sing you'll know why. 

I'm working on material for AJ's project and will keep you updated with the progress. Check my SHOWS page for performance dates with AJ. This will prove to be a wonderful music collaboration. 

Talk soon, people. Peace. 

 

Getting Acclimated 

Howdy, music peeps. I'm dusting off this blog now that a few of you have emailed to ask what the heck I'm up to (and thank you for that; someone still cares!). It's been a busy month getting out and meeting many of my new Western Massachusetts music friends. There's so much talent here. I'm honored to be a part of this music community. 

I've been doing some open mics in the area to get some chops sharpened and meet more people. So many folks, both musicians and listeners, have been very kind to me. As an artist, it's nice to have someone appreciate my work. Passing the Delta Blues I love so much on to new listeners makes me happy....

Check my SHOWS page for upcoming dates and come say hello. I hope to have your foot a tappin'! 

Until next time, peace!

Hey, everybody. Good to be back online. My hiatus was much needed and effective. I'm ready to get focused on making music again, so stay tuned for new recordings coming soon. Thank you for those of you who reached out while I was on break; that meant a lot to know some of you were still thinking of me. 

Support your local musicians and go see a show. Buy a CD. Put a few bucks in the hat. 

Thank you.
