Come out to Loft 71, formerly PVD Social Club, and Jerky's. I'm honored to be opening for The Candice Brooks Band, for The Witch's Ball. This should be a crazy fun show, come on out, wear your favorite costume, and enjoy some ridiculously awesome tune! More information available on the 'SHOWS' page.
In other news I got married last week to the beautiful and talented Elise Arsenault. It was a brilliant day filled with family, friends, great food, and of course fantastic music. Big thanks to Malloi who rocked the house and played two incredible sets.
Greetings Fellow Travelers,
Let me first start by apologizing for being so remiss about posting, and keeping you up to date. After a brief hiatus I'm back on air! One of the most essential items necessary to being a productive artist is long periods of uninterrupted time spent doing nothing. This artistic meditative nirvana has yielded fresh ideas and new approaches to new tunes that have been evading me for some time. Work continues on Lost In Petrichor. We're in the mastering stages for the first half of songs that were recorded last summer. Now that that process has been figured out it will go much faster, and I'll start in on the remaining tracks; the end is in sight!
I am so excited to announce that on Friday July 26, 2013 I'll be performing with a host of talented local performers at Celebrate Tiverton. This will be a half hour acoustic set showcasing new and old tunes. I better be on my 'A' game as the event will be broadcast on www.ripr.org
The music starts at 5:00pm More information available at www.celebratetiverton.org.
Survivors Of The Kraken return Friday August 16, 2013 as the feature performers for the evening at Roots Cafe`
in Providence. I'm very excited to be making my Roots Cafe` debut as I've loved hanging out, and going to professional development sessions there for years. Great venue, great people, great art.
Greetings fellow travelers,
Just wanted to get in touch and update you with all that's been happening recently. On June 2, 2013 Survivors Of The Kraken rolled into Sandywoods Center For The Arts and participated in the One Fund Benefit concert there. Over 10 hours of music from volunteer performers raised close over $1000.00 in donations! We were so very proud to have ben a part of such an eclectic gathering of musicians and performers. Thanks Russ Smith of Sandywoods for having us.
This past Sunday Thom Oz of The Dojo came by The Old Mill House and laid down some keys on a few tracks and one killer guitar solo. Lost In Petrichor is getting close to rapping up production. Just two tracks left to polish off and mix. This has been an enormous undertaking over the past two years, but the end is in site. Look for it soon!
I'm very excited to share the news that progressive rock virtuosos Three Points of Madness
have asked me to open for them at the Apartment on April 20, 2013. I'll be once again sharing the stage with the best rhythm section in RI Brian Decoteaux and Allan Furtado. Doors open at 7:00pm. Survivors Of The Kraken (that's our band) will take the stage around 9:00 pm just after Three Points Of Madness opens the night. Check out Three Points of Madness at Reverbnation.com
More details as they become available.
It has been a crazy week and I didn't get to post a review of the Zog show. What a fantastic evening of music, friends, and java! Special thank you to: Elise, Jerry, Janice, Allan, Brian, Katherine, Andy, Ryan, Jon, and of course Ms. Jenny White. Jenny played an amazing set that night and all in attendance were impressed with her sound and voice. It was truly a pleasure sharing the night with you all, and what a treat to return to Cafe` Zog. Thank for coming out, and I hope to see you soon.
Greetings fellow travelers there's so much to report!
This Friday March 1, 2012 I'll return to Cafe` Zog for the first time in five years. I'm so excited to be returning, and even more excited to be sharing the stage with Jenny White
. Jenny and I go way back to high school and cut our teeth on many of the same open mics. She is a phenomenal songwriter and performer. It was my great honor to record a demo for her in 2008. This should be a fantastic show in an eclectic, and original space. The show is free (so long as you promise to purchase a tasty treat) and begins at 8:00pm; see you there!
I joined reverbnation way back in 2008, but I didn't understand its immense potential until very recently. Connecting performers, venues, artists, musicians, etc. this community is a wellspring of good people, fantastic performers, and talent.
Over the past two weeks I have climbed the ranks from the basement to #5. Thank you so much to those who have been listening, became fans, and left feedback and messages! I am truly humbled and inspired to be among the top ten. If you haven't checked out all reverbnation has to offer you can by following the link here or on the mid right of this page.
Lost In Petrichor:
Stretching into the final leg of production there are five finished tracks and two in a state of near completion. Petrichor has been a personal pilgrimage of sorts. I've learned much through the writing, recording, performing, and journey. What it was to be, and what it is are totally incongruous, but I couldn't be happier with the product. Most surprisingly is that performing it live has reunited me with accomplished musicians, and good friends. Thank you so much to Brian Decotoux, and Allan Furtado for your continued support, honestly, and willingness to stand with me on the stage.
Best Regards, see you Friday,
The snow is melting, the parking ban has been lifted, and I've just received word that the show is still on. We take the stage at 9:00pm, hope to see you there!
Here is some information on 'THE SPOT' show. Doors open at 6:00pm, we are on at 9:00 pm sharp. There is no cover charge. This is a FREE Show! .
Greetings fellow travelers,
I am incredibly excited to announce that I have been asked to perform at AS220 on Wednesday January 30, 2013. I'll be opening for jazz virtuoso Francisco Pais.
I'm not sure if he's playing with his quintet or solo, but either way his performance is not to be missed! 2013 is shaping up to be a fantastic year, thank you to all that continue to support the cause. A special thank you to Maralie Armstrong. I hope to see you there!
Very excited to announce that PERMA-TOUR continues Sunday February 10, 2013 at the Spot On Top, 101 Richmond Street, and Friday March 5, 2013 at Cafe Zog 293 Wickenden Street, Providence RI.
Come celebrate the first show of 2013 at 'The Spot' with some old favorites, new friends, and cover songs! It is rare that I get to play covers, and to commemorate this I will be joined by some old friends for a slightly less rare electric set. This show is already shaping up to be one for the ages. You don't want to miss it! I am incredibly excited to be teaming up with fellow Singer/Songwriter Jenny White! Jenny and I cut our teeth at many of the same coffee houses/open mics back in the day. She is an incredibly talented musician, songwriter and all around awesome human being...even if she did like Soulcracker on VH1's bands on the run.
