🌊 NEW MUSIC

Friends, 

I hope this finds you well.

+ RECORD - After years of sitting on After the Elephant, I have decided to release it digitally. This music was inspired by the birth of my son 4 years ago- I was coming into my new life and documented it in the record. Recorded in my Brooklyn apartment with baby in hand, I would whisper these songs softly into the mics and did a bunch of work in digital land. The piano that sits in my living room (in place of a dining table) was also very present in all of the songs. Overall, the rawness and honesty that lives in this music was close to my original solo work so many of you met me through- Songs From The Eye Of An Elephant. This is what earned the name After The Elephant. It is the same stream of consciousness but with less innocence. Listen on SpotifyApple MusicTidal, and Amazon. I hope you enjoy it. I also have a limited number of signed vinyl for the project HERE and some new merch designs HERE.

While making After The Elephant, I would put visuals up in the studio on repeat.  Their beauty inspired the sounds on the album.  Ashes and Snow by Gregory Colbert has always been so moving to me.  Enjoy the visual mix tape HERE.


+ LIVE -  NYC Rockwood November 4th @ 830pm. VIP & General Tickets HERE.

+ DOWNLOAD - STATIONHEAD is my newest creation. For everyone wondering what I have been working on- my best friend and I created a company from a vision we had one night jamming in his perfectly acoustic bathroom. The app allows anyone to be DJ. Come hang with me on my station. Email me if you are interested in learning more or to set up your own station to be a DJ. // info@stationhead.com

+ LISTEN - Thursday at 10pm EST / After The Elephant Listening Party on Stationhead. Lets Talk Hard together while we listen track by track.

VIP EXPERIENCES

Why do I leave my favorite city in the world? Because of you and the light you bring me when I see you on the road.

Really happy to be going out with my boys American Authors next month. Until now, I have only had VIP Experiences in NYC- we are now taking the show on the road. Come join me for an intimate hang and performance. Some call it a picnic, but I call it you and me in the wild. Let's dance under the pale moon sky or frolic naked under the sun. All will be unique experiences with me and the music, but mostly because of the passion I know you will bring as well.

The cities available are: Charlotte, Atlanta, Baltimore, Allston (Boston), DC, Albany, Philadelphia, Columbus, and Chicago. Details are on rstar.net- check them out here.

If you haven't gotten tickets yet for the upcoming tour, do so because some of the venues have already sold out. Ticket info can be found here.

NYC, I haven't forgotten about you. The intimate after-hours set at Rockwood next month sold out, but we saved a few spots for a special VIP pre-show private hang. Drinks before the set and sit in on soundcheck. Details here.

I am so psyched to see you.


Much love

SOLD OUT SHOWS

This past week I announced two special shows at the famous Rockwood Music Hall. Both sold out immediately so when Rockwood had a cancellation, they asked me to consider filling it. I know that many of you missed out on tickets to the February dates, so I decided to go ahead and add one last show for the month. If you missed out on tix for the last two-- jump on this one fast and we'll have some fun.
