Nick Heyward Collaboration + Upcoming Residency!

My dearest friends and family,

I've got a couple of REALLY cool announcements for you all today...

First of all, I'm SO pleased and proud to announce that I've produced a track for the great Nick Heyward for the upcoming tribute LP Beyond Belief: A Tribute to Elvis Costello. Hot off the heels of our show together in January at Jones Coffee in Pasadena, we recorded a rootsy / Beatlesque version of Elvis' classic "ALMOST BLUE", featuring Stephen Smith on bass and a killer guitar solo from Steven Wilson of Plasticsoul. Nick's vocal is truly sublime and I sincerely can't wait for you all to hear this when the tribute drops later this spring...this is the same compilation I also contributed a solo version of the song RIOT ACT, with frequent collaborators Vanessa & Jason Wormer & Sarah Scarlata.  stay tuned for more info!

Speaking of Jones Coffee -
for many years in the mid-aughts, I held court at (the now sadly shuttered) Karma Coffeehouse in downtown Hollywood. It was a playground of sorts for my musical family and I, a carnival of sounds every Friday night as various peers and I threw caution to the wind and walked the high wire of spontaneous collaboration and creative abandon. It was a home away from home, a creative and spiritual center. It is the spirit of those days at Karma that leads my great pleasure to announce that I'm bringing that energy back in a new residency at Jones Coffee in Pasadena, CA. More details to come, but this will launch very very soon and I hope to share some much appreciated time and music with you here before too long. Stay tuned...

More great things cooking up at Golden State Music HQ, but that's all for now - more to come :)  Until I see you again...
