Now booking library concerts for Spring, Summer and Fall 2022.  

My concerts for libraries and pre-schools are fun and interactive, with plenty of dancing, singing, and audience participation.  My music is positive and upbeat, featuring themes of inclusivity, self-care, accepting feelings, love of nature, environmental stewardship, and just all around joy for life.  As anLGBTQ artist I am particularly interested in offering supportive and encouraging messages to LGBTQ children and their families.    

Library concerts come in two sizes:  Either a 45 minute program with me with my keyboard and guitar, or an hour (or 1 and 1/2 hour) long concert with me and my highly - danceable band, The Grumpytime Club Band, which features several teen musicians.  Both shows, but especially the full band show, are great as outdoor events.  

Please contact me for more information, rates, and booking.  Thanks so much!

Hooray!  My new album for kids and families is out and available on all online streaming platforms! Released on June 11, 2021The Grumpytime Club offers children and families welcoming and inclusive messages about accepting feelings, celebrating differences, and loving ourselves exactly as we are. 

As a queer and gender nonconforming artist, I’ve learned that inner strength derives from knowing, accepting, and loving yourself.  I've also learned how important it is to use that strength to celebrate and show up for other people and the world in general. I hope this album will give young people and all listeners a boost of love and confidence on their own journeys.

Thanks to everyone who joined me and The Grumpytime Club Big Band online for the livestream release concert on June 13, 2021!  What a blast!  Thanks also to the Shea Theater for hosting the event, and to CouchMusic.Live for filming and live-streaming.  BIG thanks to the MA Cultural Councils of Orange, Montague, and Wendell whose generous funding made this event possible! If you missed the show, you can check it out in the video below!
