My new album, "Ready For My Close-Up", produced by Jeff Lipstein, is now available. This album is a full-on opus pulling together all my influences - lieder and Tin Pan Alley and seventies singer-songwriter and David Bowie's "Lodger"-era and Kate Bush and Stephen Sondheim and Emily Dickinson and who knows what else, my head explodes - a true cornucopia in a jewel box, sprawling and intimate, unabashedly passionate and somehow clocks in at just around 30 minutes - it packs a lot of life in!
Recorded primarily at Kenny Siegal's Old Soul Studio in Peekskill, New York, with a toasty fire going in the wood stove, I was blessed to be joined by bass virtuoso Rob Jost, woodwind maestro and arranger par excellence Peter Kiesewalter, the inimitable lyricism of guitarist Jason Crigler, the rock that is guitar legend Adam Levy, the otherworldly vocals and operatic arrangement thereof of Sandy Bell, and the many other amazing musicians who made beautiful contributions.
Most of my back catalog is now available at bandcamp.
