Hello and Happy New Year! What a ride it's been with the release of "Speechless". Several exciting firsts: charting at smooth jazz radio (USA Today/Mediabase) at #35 and being played on over 60 radio stations, and achieving #15 on the UK Soul Chart Top 30 for over two months! Thanks to all who helped make the album happen... from supporting/encouraging me, to pledging on kickstarter. I'm blessed! Now it's time to set some new goals, and I'm looooong overdue in shooting a music video.... what do you think? Which song? My fave is "Like the Fourth of July".... but I'd love to hear your thoughts. And time for a Christmas album next. :) Wishing you all a joyous 2015 that sees your dreams coming true!


I'm very pleased to announce that the single from the album (the title track) is CHARTBOUND at smooth jazz radio! We could be cracking the charts in the next couple of weeks! Check it out! http://www.groovejazzmusic.com/
