NEWS for JUNE & JULY 2016!
     Well, it’s been a while since I’ve had a minute to write to you all, but things have been crazy busy – in a very good way! I’ve just returned to NYC after an amazing residency at The James Morrison Academy of Music, South Australia. I must admit, I was a little apprehensive about being out of the city for a stretch, but now knowing what a beautiful & positive vibe it is out there, I’ll do it again in a second! There’s a really special thing happening at JMA, which I'm honored to be part of. I got to reunite with my mentors and brothers, and bestow knowledge in the way they once showed me as a youngster – through love, guidance and honesty.

     I’ve also just finished recording my next record, which features Jeff ‘Tain’ Watts, Robert Hurst and Silvano Monasterios! I’m gonna’ need some bread & minutes for mixing, mastering, artwork, pressing etc.. But be on the lookout for my ‘yet-to-be-named’ 7th record, which I plan to release in the New Year.

In the meantime, get my latest record ‘Secret Rhymes’ HERE. Hope you can catch an upcoming show or two!
