Cleveland/Northeast Ohio’s Art and Literature Magazine “The Miser” featured my original lyrics drafts for my songs “Don’t Wait” and “N’attends pas (la vie)” and a page of the Cello music sheets that I composed:
Also! Here’s a picture at a Gibson Show room event in NYC:
I’ve got some exciting stuff to share!
My song “Blues Alone”, which was a winner of Honorable Mention at the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and pre-finalist at the Billboard Song Contest is used and featured for a beautiful Group dance routine called “Return to Grace” on the popular show “Dance Moms” in season 3 episode 14 (“Watch your back, Mack”) on LifeTime TV Networks! Another romantic, moving and inspiring piece done by the choreographer. They won second place with it at the Energy National Dance Competition. I am so grateful to be a part of such creative Art, this is the third song they use on the show.
The song was released on my first Solo EP in the end of 2008 and it is available on iTunes and Amazon and others!
The Aquarian Weekly (distributes North, Central, South Jersey and NYC) published a whole Page review of my album “Beautiful Sun”, written by Award winning journalist John Pfeiffer: READ IT HERE on their website – when you go to the article, to the right of it there is a “facebook like” button, please click it!
John Pfeiffer is one of he best writers in the area, he won many times “Best Journalist” at the Asbury Music Awards. His style is almost poetic. His own website is here . He is also a Rock guitarist and plays on records of the likes of Willie Nile.
Here’s the scanned newspaper page image:
It feels good to read/see when someone “GOT IT”, especially when it’s about the result of a year and a half of work, personal growth and entire life of artistic progression.

On my way home after my show at Two Moon on Thursday last week I saw some guys with a Rock style getting on the train and talking about guitar solos, pianos, and when they started saying the Steinway factory was in California and “somewhere” in NY – it’s in Astoria where I live so I thought I’d just inform them and asked what band they were in. Didn’t really understood their North Carolina accented name (and I thought MY name was tough? lol), Seth Avett, Joe Kwon and I talked for a while. They were quite nice and down-to-earth, being curious and asking me plenty of questions about where I had just performed, ect… and when I asked them if they had a show somewhere they said “Yes, tomorrow night on Jimmy Fallon on NBC”, I was still trying to put a sound/name on the faces and it is only when they spelled their name AVETT BROTHERS for my iPhone’s Notes that I”got” who they were. (i.e. They played with Bob Dylan and Mumford & Sons at a Grammy’s ceremony). Anyhow, I would have loved to see this week’s show that they’re playing in France but unfortunately I’m not traveling there these days. Oh, and of course, I gave each of them my card. Their performance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon was great (that same night they had First Lady Michelle Obama as guest). I love living in New York!
That’s it for this post!
I’ve ALWAYS loved Live Broadcast because it is so exciting, both the hosts, audio engineers feel the excitement climbing up!
Last Saturday I was a guest on Lou Telano’s Streetwise show on WGBB Radio Station on Long Island.
WGBB has been serving Long Island since 1924. They are Long Island’s first radio station and one of the oldest stations in the country.
Through all the challenges they have faced over the years, WGBB has always remained a community-minded radio station. WGBB’s radio signal serves Nassau County, Western Suffolk County, at least three of NYC’s five burroughs and parts of New Jersey.
In my few experiences with Live Broadcast, Lou has another style of hosting, which I enjoyed a lot, the interview ran very smoothly and I had a lot of fun!
Let me tell you: this is MY LAST PHYSICAL CD and all my FUTURE RELEASED WILL BE DIGITAL STRICTLY AND ONLY! So for that reason, the CD has a VERY, VERY special Artwork (especially the inside) and it is autographed by my hand (lol)! Order it by clicking below! Ships INTERNATIONALLY!!!
You can hear a preview on my Shop’s page above (these are mono streaming files :/) or rather hear a higher quality preview BELOW!
I am SO SO excited that you’re gonna hear it and sharing it with you!!!
More exclusive videos “where does it all come from?” series and also a whole mini-”the making-of” video coming soon… And of course, the new music video very soon…
I started to get some Pictures from the show, more coming soon in that same gallery:
I’ve got an AMAZING story to share! The French Magazine in New York “French Morning” had posted an article en francais here to support my show…
On the day of the show I got a phone call and a reporter for TV5 Monde (Big amazing international Francophone/French channel) came down to film the concert and do an impromptu/unplanned interview after the show, to incorporate into a documentary called “Rendez-vous d’Amerique”!!! I was psyched.
NO COVER. For an acoustic show. This is a prestigious intimate venue/listening room with a beautiful black baby-grand piano. Be there at 6:30pm to make sure you can get a seat/table and that you don’t disturb the performance! Show starts at 7pm sharp.
Here’s the album cover!!!
MORE DETAILS COMING SOON! AND LOTS OF SHORT *SURPRISE* VIDEOS THAT I’M GOING TO SHARE WITH YOU!!!
