New video - Wine Soaked Heart
Thanks to my good friend Sam Teichman who shot and edited footage from our recent CD release show at Rockwood Music Hall. This clip features some of the musicians that we spotlighted during the show including my core band members - Jeff Litman (guitar), Shawn Setaro (bass) and Dan Barman (drums) - as well Jeff Young (violin) and my wife Sarah (piano). There will be more clips to come from the show too.
Traveling Companion - out now
The new record is finally here! Thanks to all of you who came to the New York CD release show last month at Rockwood Music Hall, or to the Akron release show at Jilly's in August. For those of you who haven't been able to get your hands (and ears) on the new record, here are some links for you. And of course you can stream three of the album's tracks for free, or download for whatever price you like, via the Bandcamp link below.

Inside the sessions of Traveling Companion
Back in January when we started tracking the new record, my drummer and frequent collaborator Dan Barman took some terrific footage via the 'drum-cam'. He's put some of the footage to the final mix of one of the tunes from the new record. Check out the video below to hear the tune 'The Goodbye Road To Baltimore' and to watch Dan's beautiful performance.
Touring with Constantine Maroulis
I’m stoked to have joined the touring band for American Idol and Broadway star Constantine Maroulis. He has a new record coming out soon and a handful of tour dates including headlining spots in DC and New York (at Highline Ballroom) coming out. Be on the lookout for his new music as well as additional concert dates in the coming year.
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.
