Well, here we are : )  A brand new year, and continued work on the new CD.  The title’s changed, the song sequence has changed, but it moves closer and closer to what it’s supposed to be.  Back in the studio later this week with plans for a late Spring release.  Excited!

Great to announce that–finally–we’re headed back to the studio to begin recording my newest collection of songs, tentatively titled, Pop Song.  These 12 songs are a celebration and tribute to the pure pop songwriting I was exposed to and grew to love—first, through my older sisters and their mash-up of folk, pop, r&b and soul that constantly filled the house, along with my father’s love for jazz and my mother’s love for movie themes and soundtracks–and later, through my own musical pursuits in high school and beyond.  I wrote these songs for the pure joy of crafting lyrics and melodies and chord changes while subtly paying tribute to influences such as Kenny Rankin, Leonard Cohen, James Taylor, Neil Diamond, Daryl Hall, Michael McDonald and more, along with giants such as Stephen Sondheim.  I’m currently anticipating an early summer 2016 release if the stars all align.  Check back for more news (and session pics!) soon.
