Update on the new record and summer dates
This summer is going to be a busy one! We are just about done tracking for the new record, which I can't wait for you to hear. You can hear a couple of quick clips from the studio sessions via my Facebook page, and there will be more to come soon. I'm also starting to line up a bunch of summer gigs - both as a sideman and as a soloist. For the latter, I'll be doing another hometown gig in Akron at Jilly's Music Room on Thursday, August 18 with my friend Brian Lisik. I'll also be in Lancaster, PA on August 6 as part of the Hans Herr Music in the Orchard Series (thanks to Matt Wheeler for setting that up!). I'll be adding more dates as I'm able to confirm them, so keep checking back here!
I'm excited to announce that I will be joining the new band for American Idol and Rock of Ages star Constantinue Maroulis! Rehearsals are underway - the debut of the new band will be July 9 and the NJ State Fair, followed by fall tour dates including stops in DC and New York (with more to be announced soon). Check out Constantine's new single here.
I'll also be playing piano for Royal Star Theater's production of Side By Side By Sondheim, running for the first two weeks in June. Check the Calendar page for the full details on this and everything else I'm getting into these days.
New live videos - Live from the Living Room
I've got two live videos from the recent gig at the Living Room! Enjoy a rocked up version of "New Amsterdam" as well as "I Met A Girl", a tune from my Jukebox EP that I hadn't played in years.
Working as a professional musician, I offer a number of services including vocal accompaniment, transcriptions, arranging and piano lessons. My new Professional Services page includes details on some of the various types of work I can offer as a collaborator or as a for-hire pro.
Previously, this information was available on a separate website, westendmusicnyc.com. I've decided to migrate all of the information from West End Music over to this site, making it 'one-stop-shopping' for all fo my various musical endeavors.
