I am absolutely honored to have been featured on DC Bebop! A huge thank you to the DC Bebop team. You can check out my profile here.
I also have several new exciting tour dates to announce. Visit my performance calendar to learn more.
Available at live performances only!
I am absolutely elated to announce my latest single and my first solo release in over a year! I’ve been busy with Nivo Deux (and happily, of course), but now I’m back in the game with something of my own.
Rolling in the Deep is available on iTunes, Amazon, and other online retailers. I hope you’ll take a minute to check out the song, and if you enjoy it, it would mean a lot to me if you wrote a review or purchased the single.

During the month of November I’m offering a 2 for 1 deal on my entire physical CD catalog. That means for the price of one CD, you’ll get two signed albums for your friends, you and a friend, or just for yourself.
We’re really excited to announce our new single. It’s “C’est le Funk” by U-Nam introducing Nivo Deux and it just became available this morning on CDBaby. It will hopefully be available on iTunes and Amazon later this week.
You can check out a soundclip of “C’est Le Funk” and more here.
This Thursday from 3-6 PM PST we’ll be doing an interview on the Blake Aaron Radio show! You can tune in any number of ways: on 88.5 FM KSBR, Cox Channel 967, or streamed over the internet on ITunes or KSBR.org. As part of the interview, we’ll be premiering a new song, so be sure to tune in!
We also might play a song or two live!
In other news, I just recently finished recording a track for a charity album being produced by one of my endorsement companies. Vibrato Saxophones is currently putting together a project featuring several of their artists to help support music education in Thailand. Each of the songs on the record was written by their King, King Bhumibol Adulyadej who also happens to be a saxophone player and composer.
It’s been an absolute honor to be a part of the project. The tune I recorded is called “Lullaby” and hopefully there will be a clip up soon.
I also wanted to let you know that both of the books that are available on Teen Jazz have been updated! Advice for Young Musicians has been updated with advice from our latest interviewees (with one new chapter) and The Album Checklist Bundle has been greatly expanded! It is now 54 pages instead of 27 and has two new chapters. Advice for Young Musicians is free while The Album Checklist Bundle is only $1.99.
Lastly, I’m officially an author on Goodreads! I’m pretty excited about it. You can check out my author profile here.
I wanted to write a short email to let you know that “Open Beta,” my new EP with U-Nam as Nivo Deux was officially released today! We’re really excited about the new project, and so we just couldn’t wait until the album was done to share some of the music with you.
Over the last few months, U-Nam and I have been working behind the scenes on an exciting new project and although it’s been announced on Facebook, Twitter, etc., I have yet to share it with you here.
Our new project and group is called Nivo Deux (pronounced nee-voh doo). We launched our debut single “Love’s No Distance” on July 15 and things have been quite a whirlwind of events since it’s release!
