I’m pleased to announce we will be do a series of symphony and quartet shows early summer in the Midwest. Please see the dates below. I’m trying to do a few runs throughout each year and hopefully we will come close to your neck of the woods. It is such a pleasure performing with such wonderful players. These shows allow me to pull songs deep from my catalogue that contain inspiring string arrangements by world class composers, as well as giving a new flavor to the hits.
Forgive me for not touring quite as much these days but I’m in the midst of some exciting projects that will be bringing you new music in new arenas. You will be the first to know when Project X, Y, and Z can be announced!
In the meantime I wrote a song with my friend Stephan Moccio for Jordan Smith’s (The winner of the Voice) new album “Something Beautiful”. The song is entitled “I Got To Be Me“…because at the end of the day…that’s all we can be…
