Hope this message finds you well.
I have been working on some super cool things I would like to share: First, I've been jamming with the lovely Meaghan Farrell for the past couple of months. Meaghan has been working with my good friend, Marc Osborn, for the past year, and they have co-written quite a few fantastic tunes. Imagine a performer who has Janis Joplin's soul, Linda Perry's (4 Non Blondes) singing chops, and Pink's balls. Only then will you start to get the picture of the likes of Meaghan Farrell. Plus, she's funny as hell. Meaghan and I will be dueting here and there in the next few months. I will certainly keep you posted. Tonight she'll be joining me at Daly's in Astoria for a short set.
Second, last night I got together with 3 incredible singers - Johanna Kodlick, Tiffany Feo, and Lindsey Sanchez, to rehearse the entire "Wish You Were Here" album by Pink Floyd. My talented friend, Johanna, invited us to join her and a fantastic band led by Stanley Maxwell and Jeffrey Howard, a 15 year old guitar virtuoso, to rock some Pink Floyd. I was never a serious Floyd fan until last night. I am thrilled to be in such esteemed company and cannot wait to be up on stage in January singing harmonies on this gorgeous album. More details will follow in the calendar in the coming weeks.
Thanks guys, have an incredible Thanksgiving and Holiday Season. I'm so thankful for my awesome friends and family!
