summertime

Thanks so much to everyone who made it to my (sold out!!) record release show a couple weeks ago at Rockwood Music Hall. It meant a lot to me that so many people showed up! Here’s a picture from the show!

Next up, I’m participating in the Bushwick Book Club show on July 25th at Barbès. This time we’re all writing songs inspired by Dean Haspiel’s new graphic novel, The Red Hook. Dean will be presenting a slide show and signing books which will be available at the show. I’m writing and performing one new song as well as performing as part of BBC’s “Dance Team” in a piece choreographed by Nicola Yvette Hughes.

Benjamin Cartel and I are headed into the studio to record a few covers by the likes of Tom Petty, Kirsty MacColl and Townes Van Zandt.

I’m putting together a bill at Hank’s Saloon on September 6th with my band, Gramercy Arms (I’ll be singing some harmony with them) and Bubble.

And on September 19th, I’m filling in for Susan Hwang while she’s away and hosting the Bushwick Book Club at Barbès. I’ll also be performing a song in a great line-up that includes John S Hall, Renée LoBue, Gary Burton, Jim Andralis, Spiritchild and many others!

And I just filmed a One on One Cellar Session at City Winery with Ehud Lazin. I sang Dark Corners of You Mind, You Were Never Really Here (written for Bushwick Book Club, inspired by Jonathan Ames’ book of the same title) and Spain. John Kengla on bass, Andrea Longato on guitar and Susan Hwang on harmonies and shaker.
