Hey speaking of this blogs please join my blog at OR visit my web at and click on "shows" for updates...that's super easy as well.

I have been in and out of the recording studio working on 2 different c.d. projects that will be released this year and I've been totally excited about both of them.
Also keep your eye on the new release produced by Chuck Pinnell due for release this spring. This c.d. is a beautiful collection of Americana songs arranged and performed by various Austin performers, which I am proud to be one of...I am joined by Eliza Gilkeson, John D.Graham, Erin Ivy to name only a few. I'm also jazzed about it because I never let people hear me play piano and I'm actually doing just that on my track. well and thanks for reading my blog! Hope to see you out supporting live music in Austin!

Happy spring!
