After 15 years of live performance and collaboration, I am moving into the next evolution of my music and am currently
working on my debut album called "Wisdom Child", set for release the
Summer of 2012; including a full-length CD (12 songs) a 4 song acoustic EP and music video that I plan to shoot in Jacmel, Haiti at Cine Institute, the only film school in the country along with a mini tour.
At this point, I'm infusing the new songs with all the life lessons coming through right now. I really do enjoy telling a story across a group of songs
like a good film or a collection of paintings. Fortunately for my pen, shifting
Life has been a tough teacher but a beautiful muse. The result is a compilation of tunes that I’m
proud of and that I feel express well my voice and vision.
Gratefully, I’ve been blessed with monster musicians whose
mad skills are helping me bring to life "all those crazy ideas” I’d been
working to articulate for years. Also, I’ve
been surrounded by non-stop encouragement throughout and receiving supportive
interest from creative people all over; engineers, filmmakers, etc… wanting to
take part and work on this with me.
is pretty much set; all I need now is a little help from you, my fans, friends
FINAL PREVIEW SHOW - Wed. Jan. 18th @ Sullivan Hall, NYC

session musicians' pay
engineer / co-producer (donated pledge)
studio rental & gear (donated pledge)
mixing & mastering (donated pledge)
