Its been a good long while since the last update here- just over a year as I’m beginning to realize. Plenty has happened since I’ve last checked in as I’ve had the pleasure of working with plenty of great groups and continued to build my teaching studio in the city at Guitar New York. This past week, I had the pleasure of making my Bitter End debut with the amazing Taylor Faith and her band and was treated to a set by one of my all-time favorite guitarists, Oz Noy immediately afterwards (a happy surprise, as I had no idea he was on the bill that evening). A few days before I was in the studio laying down bass for the gritty, southern-tinged folk group Prays The Kid following a set the night before. I’ve also been able to begin working with the fellows in St. Van Cortlandt & the 101, trying to bring their forthcoming EP “The Lion Tree” to life. Finally, there’s an exciting jazz/funk project in the works tentatively titled “Stereobrow”, which will be having its inaugural show this July.
As for teaching, we’ve had a great number of students in our offices and as the first quarter rush winds down, I’m finally afforded the time to begin assembling an online component which should give the aspiring guitarists, bassists and ukelele aficionados I see every week a bevy of new resources. We’re aiming for a June launch with this one so things ought to be coming along quite nicely.
There may be a few tours and EP’s on the horizon for this summer, but in the meantime, come check out some of the upcoming dates:
May 21st with Eden James & Prays The Kid @ The Trash Bar in Williamsburg
June 8th with Taylor Faith @ Rockwood Music Hall in Manhattan
July 18th with Taylor Faith @ Hill Country Barbecque in Manhattan
July 21st with Stereobrow @ The Legion in Williamsburg
There will be plenty more added in that time, I’m sure. Check back for updates!
