Train kept a-rolling

Hey everyone! There's been a tremendous amount of news since my last post.

In late 2011, I moved to Hoboken, Nj and quit my job to pursue a full-time venture in music. That means I've been playing TONS of gigs and really just working on getting myself out in the NYC scene.

Thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, I managed to finish up my debut release "Where the Change Is". It's a 6 song e.p. that I recorded in Brooklyn at Galuminumfoil Studios (an awesome place if you're ever looking to lay something down). Thanks to Chris Cubeta (producer) and Jeremiah Shaffer (art direction), the whole project really came together quickly. I can say without hesitation that this is the best product I've put out to date. From the songs themselves to the overall appearance of the disc, I couldn't be happier.

Right now, I am working on just getting as much exposure as possible. I'm trying to put together a small east-coast jaunt to help promote the disc. If you know of any places that I should be hitting, feel free to drop me a line and let me know where they at!!

"Where the Change Is" can be found on cdbaby.com, Rhapsody, Spotify, I-tunes, and (soon) on a whole slew of other websites. You can also get signed copies from me directly with a personal message. Just hit me up on one of my many internet personae.

Thanks again for all of your support and please stay tuned! I hope to have a lot more news coming in the near future. In the meantime, check out the new tunes and try to make it to a show. I promise to not let you down!
