Along with the rest of the world, my life has been impacted by Covid-19. My entire gig schedule for most of 2020 fell off the calendar. BUT the good news is, I've been writing a lot of new songs while staying home and off the road. I'm in the planning stages of recording new music! Now, as we move into fall and winter, I'm beginning to slowly re-book live shows, safely distanced, in small venues. Please stay in touch, stay tuned and stay healthy out there! And see the next paragraph for a sneak peak at a new song!
BRAND NEW SONG! Here's a link to DEAR LIFE which i wrote with my good friend Briana Tyson. She produced and sang this track. Please enjoy.
