December 2017: Bistrot Lepic and Snowing In Vegas!

Here’s my live music update for December 2017. It’s a light month, with only one performance schedule so far, at Bistrot Lepic on December 4 with Barbara Papendorp.

As we move into the winter and the holiday season, I invite you to check out the holiday album I recorded with Aaron Myers, “Snowing In Vegas,” which you can purchase on CD or find on your favorite streaming site. It includes original holiday and seasonal songs from Aaron and me, plus creative takes on Christmas classics.

Hope you enjoy these video highlights from the album.

New song: All I Ever Lost

I’m always on the lookout for inspiration for new songs, which usually comes in the form of a unique turn of phrase that turns into a lyric or a title. For this new song, a cabaret number called “All I Ever Lost,” inspiration came from Dani Stoller, a talented singer/ actress/playwright I met last year at a cabaret hosted by Barbara Papendorp, another talented singer/actress who I have the pleasure of performing with regularly around the DC area. Dani told us a story of a failed relationship, concluding that “all I ever lost was my TV.” Several months later, that sentiment evolved into this song, which Barbara and I premiered on Aug. 23 at Bistrot Lepic. Enjoy!

November 2016 gigs: two jams and the Bistrot

Here’s my performance schedule for November 2016: playing for both the DC Jazz Singers jam (Nov 6) and the DC Jazz Jam with guest artist Elijah Balbed (Nov 13). I’m then back at Bistrot Lepic on Nov. 30 with Barbara Papendorp and Daniel Brown.
