Hi everyone, sorry I’ve been out of the loop. I’ve been busy rehearsing the band for my new show and getting ready to go out on tour. We’ll kick things off with a performance at Rockwood Music Hall, tuesday July 12th, from 9-9:45 pm. I’ll be posting regular updates from now on.
I’ve also started another project in the east village, opening up a boutique custom furniture and home things store called “Homestead”.As some of you know, I grew up traveling with my family most of the time, and never really felt rooted anywhere. The store is my way to make a statement and do something else that I love, working with antique, reclaimed wood, and interior decorating. I guess it makes sense that I’m obsessed with houses since I’ve lived in so many of them through the years. My partner in crime in this is Daria Shaw, the ceramics artist. And yes, we’re doing everything ourselves. From designing and constructing the space, to the storefront, to the building of the furniture. I can’t tell you how many times in a day we hear, “Are you doing this yourself?” Yes, yes and yes. It’s quite fun.
I’ve also started a duo with the very talented singer/songwriter Ashley Selett. (www.facebook.com/selett)
We’ve been writing together for the past few months, and the songs sound quite pretty if I may say so. I’ll post a song or two on my facebook page and or twitter account soon.
In the meantime, I miss you all and hope to see you in July. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to say hello.
