Holiday greetings and warm wishes from New Hampshire! It’s been snowing a little bit here and there for the past couple of days, so it’s looking like we’re going to have a White Christmas here.
Looking back on 2010, it was a good year all in all. The Italy trip was definitely a high point for me both musically and adventure-wise, and I’m very grateful that it’s been a healthy and good year for my friends and family. I’m optimistic that 2011 will be a prosperous and bountiful year for everyone!
My first show of 2011 will be with The Identity Crisis at the “Unofficial APAP Showcase” at DROM in NYC. Joe Abba and I will be joined by vocalist Shayna Steele, rapper and beatboxer Krussia, tenor saxophonist Sean Nowell, and bassist Sam Minaie. This is going to be a free concert that is open to the public, but it’s primary function is as a showcase for agents and promoters that will be attending the APAP Conference. Hopefully we’ll get some gigs and additional (as well as much needed!) momentum for this project as a result of this performance. Please spread the word about this concert so we’ll have a full house!
In other “The IC” news, we’re working on an EP that will consist of four tracks that we recorded this past August at the Institute of Audio Recording. Sam Minaie is doing an excellent job mixing the tracks and here’s a sneak preview:
Don’t Know : Composed my myself and Shayna, this is my first foray into straight up funky-pop writing. I’m very pleased with the results. Let me know what you think!
