Do you live NY (state), PA, MD, DE, NJ, CT, or one of those other Northeast States. I'm filling in the last holes in my June tour calendar!

This weekend - Baltimore and Bethlehem, PA! Are you in either of those areas? Do you know someone who is? Visit the calendar for more details on each specific show. Peace (sister) will be joining me on percussion and we're really looking forward to it. Hope to see you there!
The press page is chock full of new reviews and interviews! I am so appreciative to every publication and media outlet that has chosen to review the album and interview me. Go check out what others are saying!
Back in Pittsburgh, from what feels like a very long 6 days of driving and playing and driving and playing. Thank you to everyone who came out to a show. Huge shout-outs to Dayton & Chicago which were the highlights of this particular trip!! Much, much more to come...but let me just point your attention to this Sunday evening's Online Stage-it Concert at 9pm EST.

Don't live in the Philly, DC, Lancaster (or metro) areas? Have friends who do? Do me a favor and pass the latest newsletter on to them. Let them know we'll be in their city this weekend. Thank you!
I'm very excited because this week holds many wonderful things! Tomorrow Peace and I will be headed to Lancaster's WJTL-fm for a 1-hour in-studio concert. It will be broadcast live and you can tune in. Later this week, the band will be playing CD Release shows in Philadelphia, Washington, DC, and Lancaster. Please visit this site b/c there will be a handful of updates. Details on the calendar.
As of today the album has been out for 1 month! Yes! I have received so many emails from people telling me they've heard "Everything You Have" on the radio...and other emails from people sharing their opinion of the album. This is exciting to me! Thank you for making the music part of your daily playlist. Please continue to share the music. I will have more substantial news to share in the coming weeks. All the best to you!
So as I begin to tour extensively in support of the new album, I thought I would create a house show page to give people an idea of what it means to host a house show. If you've ever toyed with the idea of having a concert in your home, then read this. This year I am hoping to do more shows where I get a real opportunity to connect with the audience both on and off stage. So if you want to book a house show lets connect!
Have you checked the calendar lately? New shows at LaRoche College, Grove City College, Slippery Rock University and more! Students, if you're club or student activities board is still in booking mode for this Spring semester, contact [email protected] to set something up!
CD Release Concerts have now been announced in Philly, Washington D.C. and Lancaster! Myself and the band will be doing a weekend of shows in each city (Mar 1-3) and I am incredibly excited! Please visit the calendar for details and pass the word on.

Thank you to all who attended the New Hazlett Theater album release concert. I am absolutely speechless and don't really know what I can say to to share my gratitude. But I wanted to share this show review published on Sunken Treasures Music Blog. Perhaps this will give you a snapshot into the night. Also, just know that audio and video of the evening are on the way!
