The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of photoshoots, interviews (both for Nivo Deux and for Teen Jazz), performances and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
U-Nam is working on a new album, so I’ve been in the studio recording saxes when I’m not practicing, writing for Teen Jazz or performing. There are quite a few great songs on the project and I’m just as excited as he is about it.
I love when things are busy like this. It’s really motivating and it definitely keeps you on your toes!
A side note, my birthday is this Sunday and so I’m doing something special for those of you on my mailing list. If you’re curious what it’s going to be, or if you want in, be sure to sign up before midnight on Saturday night!
A lot has been going on the last few weeks and so I haven’t had time to write a post, but I wanted to share a few snapshots with you. We were Chartbound for the Billboard Charts with “Love’s No Distance” which was really exciting. I also had a photoshoot (new pics coming soon), several recording sessions for the new project and more.
I promise to write more soon!

While at NAMM, the big music expo in Anaheim CA each year, I was invited to perform at the BG France/Legere/Theo Wanne jam session as a BG artist. It was a huge honour and I want to thank Franck Bichon … Continue reading →
Today, I thought I would share a few photos with you from the archives. Just a few though!
The last week or so I’ve practiced more hours than I usually would in an entire month. At several hours per day, I feel like I’m accomplishing something and it makes me wish I could spend hours everyday doing nothing but playing and practicing.
I’m getting ready to do another big update tomorrow on Kickstarter where I’ll share a preview of the album art, an acoustic video of one of the songs and a few other things and I’m really excited about it. In fact, I’m just really excited about this project, how it sounds and the fact that it is so close to being finished. I’m also excited about the project that is going to follow it.
These last few weeks have been gloriously filled with music-making, rehearsing, composing, lyric writing and long practice sessions. I have been playing my new BG France ligature and absolutely loving every moment of it – I practice even more just so I can use it. I played with it at my Laguna Canyon Winery performance and I was so happy with its response! I better hurry up and order one for my tenor and another for my soprano soon.
As you know, I’ve been in the studio writing and recording two projects – Behind Your Eyes *my first full vocal album* and Le Printemps *the third in my Unfinished Compositions series.* Le Printemps will be out later this month and I’m really excited about it. Once Le Printemps is done, there is only one more EP left in the series – the entire collection will also feature a few bonus tracks. For those who subscribe to my email list, you actually receive one of the unreleased bonus tracks for free (but shh, that’s a secret).
I’ve finally finished writing all the songs for Behind Your Eyes, I’m in the middle of recording everything for the tracks and finishing up the lyrics. The album will be out this Fall.
I’ve also been rehearsing with South Coast Singers for their summer concert series. We have three performances this month in South Orange County and almost all three shows are already sold out! At the end of the month, I will be performing at Anthology with Taboo Band, a Sade tribute group.
