WVIA

So last thursday I went back to Pennsylvania for a WVIA interview with Erika Funke, and a Home Grown recording with George Graham. It was such a great opportunity and I’m very grateful to George and Erika for having me. Tim, John, Eric and I all together to play for the Home Grown recording, and we played some of the songs from "Somewhere Past Distraction" as well as some new songs. I had such a great time and I’m looking forward to doing some more shows back home this fall!

Melting.

I can't believe how hot it's been lately. I just went through another tub of ice cream just to survive the heat. I had no choice.....anyway, it's crazy hot. that's all. I've been trying to embrace it though. I actually went to a couple of yoga classes last week despite the heat. It was great, I'm gonna try to keep going. I forgot how much I like it. things overall are going pretty well. I just moved into a new place. bought a new computer so I can actually update my blog. :) I'm working on finishing up my new songs. a lot of "new" happening. it's good. Booking some gigs for later on in the summer. Keep an eye out for new dates. :)

Home for a minute :)

I got to spend a bit of time back in NEPA these past two weekends. I played a couple of gigs, caught up with family and friends. My parents live in the country, so staying at their place I was able to wake up to birds chirping and misty summer air and all that good stuff. Last weekend I was home I spent a good couple of hours just bumming around and swimming in Deer Lake with my sisters. I also went to see my 5 year old cousin's dance recital. (she was awesome, she danced to "Bushel and a Peck" and "Mama Mia.") I also ended up playing guitar and singing some country songs with a group of local bluegrass players (including my Dad) It was a great weekend. This past trip went by a little quicker,(I'm headed back to NYC early tomorrow morning.) But I played a gig last night, and went for an awesome hike today. Until these past two weekends I hadn't been home since January, so it was really nice to get out of the city for a bit and take in some NEPA wilderness. :) Anyway It'll still be good to get back to NYC tomorrow and get back to work. I've got some gigs coming up very soon. So keep checking my site and I'll be sure to keep you updated! :)

Happy Spring!

After a couple of cold rainy days, it's amazing how wonderful the sunny spring weather can be. It wasn't even all that warm today, but the sunshine was amazing. anyway I'm looking forward to the coming months. I can't help but feel a little bit homesick for the Pennsylvania countryside, but I'm sure I'll take a trip back there soon enough. There's a lake back home where I spend a lot of time with family, canoeing around, swimming, fishing. I'm hoping to go visit sometime soon. I'm starting to like NY more, but I could still use a canoe ride. I think everyone would feel better with a good canoe ride now and then.

Blog on Boots.

As the snowy weather is leaving us I’d like to share a brief winter’s tale... I was walking with a so-called friend home from the Thai place on the corner (I had shrimp with cashew nuts and he had shrimp with basil sauce). I also LOVE Thai iced tea, but I’m getting off the point. So on the way back from our tasty culinary adventure this “friend” of mine decided to push me into the large bank of snow as a joke. Now this could have been funny if I was wearing my trusty waterproof faux fur lined boots. Alas my flat slipper style shoes instantly got soaking wet and FREEZING cold. Then I got chased down all the way down Fulton st with my buddy yelling “I’m gonna get you" like some some sort of crazed villain. Now I wouldn’t bother putting this into a blog if it wasn’t for the stories my friend told after this event weren’t either the funniest or the worst thing I’ve ever heard. You can decide. Not only does my friend push his friends into snow, he pushes his friends into complete strangers just for a reaction. To give you an idea of his evils, he once pushed one of his friends into a small child and walked off really fast leaving his friend with a crying child and its mother screaming at his friend for not looking where he was going. Even worse he has friends that like to fart on small children! When walking down the street or in line in the supermarket if there is a small defenseless child his friends like to let one rip right in their face! They love it when it causes the child to cry – EVIL AND GROSS! On a slightly funnier but no less gross side they do like to fart loudly in public amongst prissy teenage school girls which apparently always give a reaction like “Oh. My. God, gross!!”They also go up to random strangers with white beards and ask to their face for things like “A train set, BMX bike and no fighting at home.” That’s right, like Santa Clause! Are they bullies? Let me know what you think…

The Journey of SPD

I know I'm supposed to start blogging about things like what I ate for breakfast (oatmeal) and what color socks I'm wearing, (hot pink) but just before I do too much of that, I want to say a few words about how this album came to be. The songs recorded have been tossed around for the past five years. I've been singing them in bars, coffee shops, theaters, living rooms, anywhere I could,just trying to develop them more. Truth be told, I was a little afraid to record them, because I'm always changing things around and I didn't want to commit...But I have to say I'm so glad I finally did it. I had a great time recording this album. It was sort of an on and off process. I spent a lot of time working on cruise ships during the past two years, so a good amount of the recording was done in between cruiseship contracts. It was a whole lot of traveling around, stops and starts and amazing cooperation from all of the great people that took part in this project. I'm so happy it's finally finished, and I'm so excited to be out performing these songs!
