Some Photos from Last Month's CMJ Show 

Hi friends,

Last month I played a showcase hosted by The Brink & DATA Touring at The303 here in NYC for CMJ.  It was a great night and Candice from The Brink put up a few photos from the night that I thought you all might enjoy.  November is shaping up to be a relatively quiet month, at least on the public side... December should see things kick up a notch or two.  Get ready. :)

Jones, director and choreographer of the musical Fela! that was such a success on… Read more

Ireland Trip 

This past week I travelled to Northern Ireland, splitting my time between Belfast (to attend a wedding) and St. John's Point in Donegal.  Both were lovely experiences.  Watching 2 friends get married, meeting all their friends and loving families, listening to all the speeches, singing with the band...
