During the first week of December, I had the opportunity of shooting a video for the new Boss RC-30 Loop Station. It is an absolutely awesome product, with a LOT of new features, and it's a great upgrade from the RC-20xl. Below is a link to watch the video, describing the new features.

This will most likely be my CD release show!

We had a LOT of fun recording it!
I entered the Cover Band 2011 contest, for a chance to perform at Winter NAMM in January. I was the runner-up in the Acoustic Guitar category for my cover of "Crazy On You" by Heart. As the runner-up I won a Takamine Acoustic/Electric Guitar!!
I saw pictures of Steve Winwood signing the Fender Stratocaster the other day, and according to the tracking information, the guitar should be arriving in the next few days! I can't WAIT to actually see his signature and of course, play the guitar.
My next solo/acoustic gig is at the Grape Room on Saturday January 8. I'm hoping that it will also be the CD release show. It'll be a great night of music. Case Closed, The Violet Tone, The Nodd, and Brett Talley will also be peforming.
Wow! I just found out that I won first prize in the Steve Winwood "Can't Find My Way home" cover contest. The prize? A Fender Stratocaster signed by Steve Winwood. I started performing this song about 5 years ago, with the Paul Green School of Rock, so when I heard about the contest, I decided to record the version that I do now, and upload it!
Winning a signed guitar, is amazing; but, this video message from Steve Winwood made my week.. maybe all time highlight? You can watch the video here: http://stevewinwood.com/media/videos/1368/4231 The comments on his website, my YouTube video, and everywhere else regarding the contest, have been incredibly supportive. My video can be seen here, or in the video section of my page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4FId2Sy2fk
Next Wednesday night, Thanksgiving Eve, I'm performing at Mojo 13 in Wilmington, DE. The doors open at 8pm, I perform from 9-10pm. 21+. Also performing: The Hold Up, The Overlook, and Nate Farrar.
Last Thursday (October 7) I performed with Matt Radomile and Matt Lobach at Mojo 13 in Delaware. After our performance, I had the opportunity to play a song with 12 Mile Circle, a great trio of musicians. Overall it was a great show!
Last night Leaving Cash played at the Note in West Chester, PA with the Profile, Jansen, & Grandy. It was an excellent night of original music, and the first show we've played as a band in months. We're almost done recording a new single as a band.
My CD is ALMOST done. All 11 songs are recorded. I can't wait to get the copyrights for the songs, have them mixed and mastered, and finally release the music.
On Friday I leave for L.A. for the BOSS Loop Station National Finals! I'm beyond excited to see the other finalists performances, be in California, and perform for an audience full of people I've never seen before.
On Saturday I had a photo shoot with the amazing photographer Lauren DeYenno. In the photograph section of the page there are several more pictures from the shoot.
On Thursday night (October 7), I'll be performing at Mojo 13 in Wilmington, DE with Matt Lobach and Matt Radomile. Also performing that night is FelixHunger, John Eichleay, and 12 Mile Circle. The doors open at 8pm.
My CD is almost done, just a few vocal tracks left, then it's time for mixing and mastering.
Last night at the Grape Room was a LOT of fun. Thanks to everyone who came out and bought a copy of the Promo/Demo CD. The full length CD is about halfway done. Hopefully I'll be able to finish all the writing and recording by mid-October at the latest. The website is still under construction. It's coming along slowly.
The website is still under major construction, but it's up and running now! I'll be performing tomorrow night at the Grape Room in Manayunk. Doors open at 7pm!
