New song "Aria" with ESCP 

 

 

Two of my favorite people on the planet, whom also happen to be incredibly talented, have a Chicago-based band together called ESCP.  We wrote a song together that means a lot to us called "Aria".  I hope you'll take a few moments to have a listen to this tune and support ESCP.  Much love all around.

Chicago!!! Playing at Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park 6/22 FREE 

After 16 wonderful, fulfilling years living in the city of Chicago, I find myself called to move Westward to try my luck in the city of angels. I love you Chicago, always will, you've been very good to me as an artist/human.  New chapter ahead, nothing but love and appreciation in it's wake.  

Join me and the band at Pritzker Pavilion for our final Chicago show while I can still claim residency here.  It's a free show, June 22nd, 6:30pm sharp.  I'm grateful for such an amazing way to bid farewell to a city that has given so much to me.  

Hope to see you there Chicago!!
