Spring Is Coming

HI everyone! Thank you for checking in on my website. Hopefully the spring air is as inspiring to you as it is to me!

The last two months have been pretty exciting here in NewYork City. I was recently featured in a music video for pianist/composer Addison Frei. For three days, we trekked around New York city with director, David Ashton and crew. This was a thrilling (and tiring) experience. The video will be released in conjunction with Frei's new album, "Transit," which I am also featured on.  Please visit www.addisonfrei.com for updates and release dates on that project.

On March 7th, I performed my first show as a leader in New York City at Rockwood Music Hall. This venue is fantastic, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. I was joined by Addison Frei, Perrin Grace, and Curtis Nowosad. This band will be back together at Silvana in Harlem on  April 22nd at 6pm. 

Later this month, I will be traveling to Kansas with Addison Frei for a series of performance dates. Not long after that in April, I will be performing with fellow vocalist and friend Ben Cassara at Pangea in New York City.

To end the month of April, I am excited to announce my show at the distinguished Cornelia Street Cafe on April 29th, 2016, where I will be singing the tunes of Thelonious Monk. I am very excited to share this project, and hope to see some of you there!

As always, thank you for visiting my website. Stay tuned for more news!
