Me In A Nutshell – Live Performance – July 23, 2022 – Feat. Katie Dwyer

This song is a cornerstone of the themes on my new album, Transitions. This song was based on a four page journal entry that was condensed down to one page which was then condensed down to a paragraph. Then I wrote this song. This features the very talented musician/producer Katie Dwyer. Please also check out all of HER stuff because she makes every project she works on better.

I have a show!

I have a show!!  And it’s at one of the venues that I got my start in live performance, the No Future Cafe in Pasadena! I’m super excited to be playing the songs from my new album Transitions live for people. The response has honestly been super encouraging and affirming and I’d love to share it with you. I will be accompanied by longtime bandmate George Matamala (Savros, The Vegas Nerve) on bass and I couldn’t be more excited to share the stage with him again. Also performing is lifelong musical friends John R.
