One Year Of "Hi"!

Well my debut album, "Hi" has officially been out for one year now!! It seems like yesterday, but time flies when you're havin fun! Thank you so much to everyone who bought the album and made it a success. In the beginning we ordered 500 copies of the CD figuring that would be way too many. But I never dreamed we would have to order more! Now nearly 1,000 people have a physical copy of the album, not to mention digital downloads! I really can't thank you guys enough! I LOVE YOU (sorry I'm not sorry if that makes you feel awkward) https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/hi/id663097276?uo=4

p.s. I have some exciting news coming soon! :)

2013, what a year!!

This has really been an amazing year. In the past 6 months, i've accomplished more than I ever expected. It all started in June when I released my debut album, "Hi" with 12 original songs, 6 of which I recorded at a professional studio, and the other 6 I recorded/produced myself. The album was professionally mastered at MasterDisk in NYC, who mastered some big names, such as Bruce Springsteen and physical copies were beautifully made at Spinergy, who also works with big names, including Disney. It's always been a dream of mine to be able to say "I'm on iTunes", and now that dream is a reality. I've also been lucky enough to be on multiple radio stations. This year, my music was played on 98.9 the BUZZ, 92.5 WBEE, and WHAM 1180 which are some of the biggest local radio stations in Rochester. Plus, I had multiple live radio interviews this year on Bug Country and WHAM 1180. One song in particular, my a cappella version of "Silent Night", received an incredible response. It was featured on the homepage of BigCityCountry.com, and was played twice on the Bob Lonsberry show. Plus, I had a live radio interview with Bob himself because of it. I've also reached milestones on social media. In just 6 months, I have reached nearly 1,700 likes on Facebook, over 1,700 followers on Twitter, over 3,000 plays on SoundCloud, and nearly 200 subscribers on YouTube, with almost 30,000 overall views. In addition, I was the featured December songwriter on Frettie.com. I've also played countless shows around Rochester, usually with gigs every weekend. Because of this, I've become friends with some amazing musicians, including local legend Don Mancuso, Steve Wittman, Amanda Ashley, Robert Blackburn, and more. Even though I've been busier than ever, I have still found time to do what I love most, which is to write. I've written over 50 songs overall, and I don't ever plan on stopping. This year was unbelievably great, but 2014 is gonna be even better. I have big plans, and am working hard on new music, videos, etc. Thank you SO much to everyone who helped make this year special. I couldn't have done it without all your help. A special thanks to Brian Timmons and Tony Gross for your advice and support, Don Mancuso for helping me out and letting me play shows with you, Robert Blackburn for helping me complete my debut album, Sherri Goodenough for coming to my shows and supporting me, and my parents for their constant love and support. 2014, here we come!
