Hi everyone!

I've just landed at JFK airport and am psyched to start playing music again! It was very rough going for awhile, but I'm back and ready to play with my new band, including my old friend (and bass god) Chuck Rainey, as well as new friends Billy Masters and Doug Yowell, who many of you will know from Suzanne Vega's band.

I'm also very excited about a benefit concert I'm doing for Gilda's Club on November 10. I will be joined by Lach, Ruff Ryders/Ruff Pop recording artist LT, and the phenominal Ana Egge. 100% of the door (and whatever we collect at the show) will go to benefit Gilda's Club. [more...]

I'm ready to start a new journey, and I hope you will come along for the ride -
