3’s A Charm Live at the Roxbury

I found myself immersed in the heart of the Catskills at the Roxbury Arts Center this past Saturday, Sept. 25th, night making music with two of my favorite artists –  Broadway’s Miss Sally Mayes, and rock and cabaret’s piston Lina Koutrakos.

The show, “3’s A Charm” was produced by our old pal, Maggie Cullen from the famed days of the legendary club 88s in Manhattan.

I provided musical direction for Lina and Sally and also performed some original songs, including a new one – “Go Ahead and Dream” – from the soon to be released movie “That’s what I Am” staring Ed Harris and Amy Madigan. my performance of Go Ahead and Dream is the one that became featured in the movie.

For more info on my involvement in “That’s What I Am” take a look here.

Spring Harvest CD Artwork Explorations

spring-harvest-cd-surfaceThe making of the Spring Harvest CD was a blast – and a journey. It was an exploration of every aspect of my life – finding new beauty in the familiar and new value in my own history… For the Spring Harvest CD artwork I searched my apartment, New York, and the surrounding areas I knew so well to find images to represent my life in the big city and found wonder everywhere. These are some of them.

The photos and scans were taken by Clinton Bradley and myself.

The photos for the front and back cover were shot by exceptional World renowned photographer and all round great guy Simon Watson

 

So This Is How It All Began….
