Exciting news! I'm currently working on my second CD. Five "demo" songs have been recorded - with several others in the works. This CD will be a combination of pop, rock, country, and folk music.
On Saturday night, Leaving Cash will be performing together for the first time in 2 and 1/2 years.
New video! Here's my acoustic live cover of "Part of Me" by Katy Perry:
Just added a few new photos in the "Photographs" section of the page.
I'm currently writing and recording new songs. I'll be uploading a new cover to YouTube very soon!
August, September, October, etc.
I've been spending the past few months performing and writing new material, which has been great. August 18-20, I played at the We R Indie/Indigrrl Conference in Knoxville, TN with Matt Radomile. We were able to meet a LOT of very talented musicians. The only downside was driving 10 hours straight down to Knoxville. When we left, we headed West to Nashville. While in Nashville, we played a few open mics at the legendary Bluebird Cafe, and at the Commodore.
Last week, I traveled back down to Nashville (except this time I flew down). I played at the Commodore Thursday night and at Hotel Indigo Saturday night. Both of the rounds were a lot of fun, especially because I was able to sit next to and listen to talented writers and musicians.
One of the newest songs I finished writing is called "Nothing Left To Burn." Jonathan Robinson played an impromptu solo at the Commodore, which can be seen and heard in the video below.
December 9: McKenzie in Chadds Ford, PA from 8-11pm.
January 21: Chaplin's Music Cafe in Spring City, PA.
The Past Few Months
The past few months have been great! I've been busy performing my original music, playing at weddings & mitzvahs, writing new songs, and playing with several different bands. On June 4th, I had the opportunity of playing violin/mandolin with the Rob Snyder Band at the 92.5 XTU 27th Anniversary Show, held at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ. The sound was incredible! I had so much fun playing with the band, and watching performances by all of the headlining acts of the festival. This coming Thursday night, the band will be opening for Frankie Ballard at the Dockside Bar at Dave and Busters in Philly. It's a FREE show.
On June 5th, Leaving Cash played at the Super Sunday Event in West Chester, PA. It was the first show that the band has played in about 6 months. We'll be performing again on Sunday, July 17, for the Turks Head Festival, also held in West Chester, PA.
On June 25, I played a show at Chaplin's Music Cafe in Spring City, PA with Matt Lobach and Matt Radomile. We performed as a trio for a co-bill show with Kenny James. On July 8, I'll be performing with a FULL BAND at the Grape Room in Manayunk (Philly). This will be the first show that my originals will be performed as a full band LIVE. I'll still be using my loop station, for the string tracks.
