When I asked my friends to help me come up with the most swinging pop and rock melodies they could think of, they really stepped up! I had fun putting together this list and playing them for you. In the follow-up video, we will talk about what makes a really good swinging melody and how to phrase it so that it swings even harder!
I perform as often as I can all around LA and Orange Counties. Most often, I am playing solo piano and singing, but I also perform with my trio, my duo (called Skirt & Suit with Joshua Payne) and also with whoever asks me to join them, whenever they ask!
Some of my favorite local collaborators are Mike Scott, Shane Savala, Bruce Lett, Lyman Medieros, Steve Cotter, Kendall Kay, and I could go on and on.
I love to play and you can always find my gig dates on the “GIGS” tab of this site.

I layed down this track and sent it to my friend, Justin over in Atlanta and he worked his magic with those brushes, just like I knew he would. I've always loved this song; this portrait of a street performer who had seen better days. I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks to everyone who sent in videos! It was fun to put them all together and make another virtual band. This time, there were drummers! I was excited. We will do another one soon!
