Middle Tennessee Music did a nice spotlight on the new album. Check it out!
This is so exciting! This CD represents all the time I have spent in France over the last couple years. For those who are catching up, I spent three months in France last year collaborating with The Carbone Band from Nantes. We played many shows, recorded an album, and did an Artist in Residence. On the CD you’ll hear our song “Fly”, which was written by all of us! They wrote the instrumental groove and I wrote the lyrics, melody and piano interlude. You’ll also hear them jam out by themselves at the end of the album. There are also so many little “nuggets” of awesome in this album, including a whole string ensemble! I sing a little bit of French and we really explore alternative sounds all over. Please, if you’re enjoying the album, don’t be afraid to get in touch and let me know.
Hurray! You don’t have to wait. You can buy my new album, Restless, right now from iTunes! When you pre-order, iTunes will give you one mp3 right away and the rest on July 1st. Here’s the link!
AXS just posted a great interview about my music and the new album on their site.

I grew up in San Diego. I’m very happy to return to this area of the world finally. It’s been far too long! Please, invite your friends and family to my shows. The more the merrier! (San Diego, June 15th, 8pm at Lestat’s & Los Angeles, June 17th, 9pm at Room 5 Lounge)
If you’ve been following closely, you know that I spent three months in France last year. During which I recorded the soon to release album, Restless, with The Carbone Band and was artist in residence at La Maison des Arts in Saint Herblain. At the end of my three months we did a big concert at the school and we made sure to record the students for some of the album as well. Check out this video, and you’ll get the full effect. Enjoy!

I’m very happy to share with you the cover of my album, Restless, which will release this July! Can’t wait to share it with you! It’s being printed as we speak and will be shipped to me on May 15th. I’ll receive them by the end of the month and then the real work begins! How exciting!
The new album is wrapping up. The mp3s have been released to pre-release donors and now we’re finalizing the artwork to get the CD released! In the mean time, I’m gearing up for lots of shows up and down the West Coast including Eugene and Ashland (OR), San Diego, L.A. and many small towns as well. So make sure to check the show dates (to the right) to get the dates. Please be there! I don’t want to miss you!
This Thursday I’m sending the pre-release mp3s out to all my supporters of the new album. If you want to get pre-release mp3s make sure to donate now! I can’t guarantee you’ll get them right away this late in the game but you’ll definitely get them within the next few weeks, long before the release. Plus your support will help us print the physical copies! Donate Here
I’ve had two kinds of fundraisers for the next album. It seems like the never-ending fundraiser at this point! I’ve been working hard to figure out the best solutions for fans in both France and the U.S. The last fundraiser was targeted more to Europe, so I’ve now created a fundraiser through PayPal that does not have an end date. You can donate whenever you want! We still need $1100 more to finish the album printing. You can pre-order your digital album for $13 and you’ll be contributing to the fundraiser as well. Please check it out!
