Update #7 – New Tools, New Project

It’s been a minute! Here are some updates.

“New tools”

  • Currently editing my reel with new footage from “Mother” and “Sofia, Mon Amour”
  • Just booked a session with David Noles in February for new headshots

“New Projects”

  • Began my first screenplay tentatively titled “Lyle in May”
  • Booked a “microshow” at Mobtown that will happily suffice as the acoustic counterpart to my Full band EP being released February 2015

Wrapped two shows this past month – our 1 Year Old Acoustic Soiree celebration at People Lounge and a benefit for Ebola Relief at Toshi’s Living Room.  Grateful to keep up a rhythm. Will update again soon!

Update #6 The F Word Doc!

Just performed a tune at Joe’s Pub for Meganda Films’ premiere of The F Word Documentary. The true renaissance woman and chief visionary for the documentary, Megan Segarra, asked me to contribute a song. I was moved solely by the request and after viewing the documentary I couldn’t be more grateful to be involved.  Check out the trailer below where you can learn more about the documentary (and hear my original tune “Brother/Sister of Mine”!). Photos of the premiere are also below!

Update #5 – Banned Book Series!

Hey! Just wrapped up a Banned Book Series event with the oh-so-lovely Nicola Murphy at the beloved Aubergine Cafe is Sunnyside, Queens. It was a special evening, to say the least. I was fortunate to return to my favorite Queens neighborhood/former home while meeting the vibrant personas and talents of Anna Paratore, Katy Wright-Mead, and David Beck.

The event was recorded, so, hopefully I’ll have some footage to share next month (if not sooner!). A photo below show the whole gang along with Aubergine’s owner, Gary.

Still fighting a pretty gnarly cold but, planning to have a video up next week covering a tune : ). Thanks for checking in!

Update #4 – Mixing EP & Soiree

Howdy! Still delayed with posts as I’ve continued to be quite busy.

Just had my first film premiere! It was sold out an Anthology Film Archive (folks were sitting on the steps!). The film is titled “Mother” directed by Franz Maria Quitt starring Darlene Cates (What’s Eating Gilbert Grape),  Ryan Jonze, Alexander Rolinski, and myself. A special day to say the least.

Currently in the mixing phase of my debut EP “Where I Need” with Simon & Mat (who are talented beyond belief!).

Lastly, played a successful Acoustic Soiree the other night with Simon, Lindsay, and new soiree-et Ricci Swift. All uber talented folks complimented by a beautiful audience. Excited for the next one which will be a bit unique. Will update soon!

Update #3 – Back in NYC!

Been a bit all over since returning to the Big Apple. Just wrapped a film titled “Sofia, Mon Amour” (an incredible experience) and also had the privilege to perform at Joe’s Pub again for their Talent Show. I’m about to revamp of The Acoustic Soiree with good pals, Simon Pyles and Lindsay Dunphy and continue to work on finalizing my Debut EP set for a late 2014 release! Videos of new tunes and covers will commence soon again! Aiming for October! Photos from latest works/performances are below. Thanks in advance for taking a gander!
