It is already the end of May! And I know we are all READY for summer!
The album recording is coming right along. My long time friend and amazing Chris Jordan moved to Seattle and recorded all the final keyboard parts. Chris and I met and worked together on Carnival Cruise Lines a couple of years ago and he has since been working as a Musical Director and Orchestration Arranger for Norwegian Cruise Lines. I told him he should move to Seattle and then… he did! We are very happy to be together and playing music again! And thanks to him, the album is really coming together and sounding great!
You might have also seen a couple updates from my trip to Minneapolis, Minnesota!! I was invited to come out and collaborate with The 7th Ave Band (http://www.7thaveband.com/) by my friend Tristin Rupp and her brother Chris Rupp (Chris Rupp comes from the highly acclaimed a cappella group “Home Free” that won Season 4 of ABC’s The Sing Off). The 7th Ave Band is a vocal group with a focus on fierce harmonies, epic live performances and MUSIC VIDEOS!! They also tour regionally and internationally. Very excited to show off our first collaboration with these fabulous folks covering the song, “Ashes” by Celine Dion, from the new Dead Pool 2 movie!
So Enjoy the video here and I’m sure this will be the first of many amazing collaborations!
PS. I’m heading out to Pittsburgh tomorrow to participate in PHILLfest Music One-Man-Band festival! Wish me luck and shoot me a message if you’re in the ‘Burgh!
