At the risk of eliciting jealous hatred, I will confess that I am writing this email from Northport, Florida, where it is warm and sunny.  Right now the weird winter weather of New England seems like a distant and unpleasant dream. Guess I'm in for a harsh awakening when I return Monday evening! In the meantime, here are some updates on my various projects:

My New CD: Piti Theatre's Greatest Bits, Vol. I 

A couple of years ago, Piti Theatre and I received a generous grant from Club Passim in Boston, via the Iguana Fund.  We used the money to help make a compilation of 16 of our favorite songs from some of the "mini musicals" we've done together. This collection is a smorgasbord of songs covering many different subjects/themes and includes songs from educational residencies at public schools as well as songs from our two touring plays, "To Bee or Not To Bee', and 'Innocenzo'. It took us awhile, but we are finally finished and will be digitally releasing the CD on March 11 at Syrup, Piti's annual Performing Arts Festival. If you can't make it to the festival, you can download the CD here.  Physical CDs will be available shortly.  Let me just say, I am really, really, into these songs and these recordings! Please check it out!

Song Blog  

I've been publishing my weekly Song Blog, 'Catch and Release', for 2 months now and I am having a blast.  Every week I post a song plus art and lyrics and thoughts.  For the next few months I will be featuring songs from my new CD with Piti Theatre.  This week's song is 'Magnet Star', a song about Electromagnets. Please take a look/listen:   Catch and Release, a Song Blog.

2 The Moon

If you haven't seen/heard my covers duo 2TheMoon yet, Shelley Hines and I will be back once again at the Deja Brew in Wendell, MA, to rock your world!  Loud singing, fist pumping, and foot stomping is highly encouraged, and basically unavoidable. We throw a GREAT party!  Resistance is futile. Folks, this is not just empty hyperbole, come see for yourselves!
