HAPPY HOLIDAZE TO ALL!!
I hope you’re enjoying your holiday season! Mine has been very hectic with parties and a few gigs coming up, plus writing with some very talented people including the 80’s superstar Tiffany and a great new emerging artist from Australia named Greg Cooper.
I'll be doing a gig on December 12th @Nic's Martini Lounge in Beverly Hills w some of my favorite musicians and friends: R Zach Wagner on Guitar and vocals, James Gadson on Drums and vocals, Barry Goldberg on keyboards and Billy Haynes on Bass and vocals.
To share in the joy of the season, please remember that my cd “For the Holidays” is live on iTunes worldwide:
Also, my newest album, released a few months ago, entitled “Gray Matterz”, is available digitally worldwide on all digital sites and also physically via www.graymatterz.info which has lots of insights to all the songs, plus lyrics. Order from there and you can get a signed physical copy from me. You can also order from www.cdbaby.com for a physical copy.
I had the most fabulous time in England this past October doing lots of radio for BBC Radio 2 and many other stations promoting my new album Gray Matterz. One of the songs, “Drag Queen”, is climbing up the charts on UK station Gaydio. Emma Scott of www.plugginbaby.com did a great job helping me get to radio in the UK and I'm most grateful for her help. A second single from that album will be released shortly after the New Year.
And also, just in time for the holidays, I’ve released some remixes of “Stay” on my “Stay 2015, The Cosmic Collection” featuring mixes from some of dance world’s most successful DJ’s including Julian Marsh, Parralox, Paul Sharman and more. Part 2 will be released shortly after the new year with even more remixes of the same song. The release has begun charting worldwide, entering Top Ten and I have the help and expertise of Sobel Promotions to thank for that.
So, fill your cup with cheer and your soul with Good Will and pass the love around! Here’s to a healthy, happy and safe 2016.
Peace, love and joy to you!!
Happy Spring!! I hope the weather is warming up wherever you are.
Got a few tidbits of news for you. I'm nearly finished with an ENTIRE NEW ALBUM!! The exciting thing about it is I've recorded most of it in my home studio and written most of it myself as well. The additional songs were cowritten with an associate I was fortunate enough to meet and work with while attending the Black Rock Songwriting Camp in gorgeous Santorini, Greece, back in 2013. His name is Paul Drew of DWB productions and he has been doing an incredible job mixing everything for me as well as adding more production to make it sound that much better. Paul and I wrote a great song together at the songwriting camp with another great writer named Marcus Winther-John. The song's called "What's The Time in Tokyo" and was actually released in 2014 by a Belgian artist named Syl and it was entered into the Eurovision Song Contest and released as a single, doing quite well. I decided to include my version on the new album.
The other few songs were cowritten with my amazing talented Renaissance man, Lance Aston, who, when he puts his mind to it, can do anything! He helped me write one of the best songs on the album called "England Calling" soon to be released as a single. He also helped me write a vibey track called "U N Me" which I love.
I put another song from the album on facebook/youtube with a video animated by a young talent named Rafaella Angelica Nepales, a few months ago called "Home". It caught the ear of a dj in England named Mark Dezzani @Radio Caroline and he gave it a few spins for me commenting on how much he loved the song.
So far 7 songs are mixed, another one has been sent off for mixing and in the background right now, Lance is doing some sound editing on another song that will be on the album. My goal is to have everything mixed by the middle of next month [May].
Aside from that, I've started a new business venture called Song Seamstress. I have been asked numerous times to listen to and critique peoples' songs, so I decided to create Song Seamstress to offer songwriting consultation and coaching in the effort to help people take their songwriting skills to a new level. I am also offering to create custom songs for people for business or personal use, which I've already done successfully in the past. You can see testimonials on the site: www.songseamstress.com. You can see all the details on how to get started there.
Thanks and have a wonderful Spring!!
Peace, Love and Music;
