Ever had to get up on the stage and perform with people you have NEVER REHEARSED WITH? It happened to me last weekend in Bismarck, North Dakota at University of Mary and I would like to tell you a bit about how it felt! Thanks to Nestor Torres and co, as well as everyone from UMary. It was a blast!
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 quartet regularly.
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.

Studio footage from the day I recorded "You Should've" at Oakhouse Studios with Mike Scott (guitar) and Bruce Lett (bass). It's one of the tracks that I decided to record piano and vocals simultaneously on. (Others were "Looking For The Answers", "All Too Soon", and "So In Love," and you can see the partition we built to semi-isolate the vocals from the piano) I was really glad to have gotten this one in one take because it's an emotionally taxing one for me. I'd really rather someone else sing it (Bonnie Raitt would be an absolute dream).
The Rogers and Hart classic, Where Or When - Live at The Blue Whale in Los Angeles with Mike Scott on November 17, 2019. (more to come...stay tuned and a big thank you to Jonny Maia for running sound that night and getting a great recording for us)

Mike and I played a duo concert and gave a mini clinic at Fullerton College on Nov 8, 2019. It was so fun, I wanted to share it with you. Here are our favorite excerpts. Recorded using my Rode NT4, and Rode VideoMicro, in two locations. The NT4 was just off the stage, and the VideoMicro was atop my camera, near a speaker.
