In light of what’s happening, I wanted to send love to all of you, and wish you good luck as you navigate the next few months. Be safe, be diligent, be grateful for what you have! I am trying to recognize the love I have in my life and that includes lovers of my music like you all.
I plan to exercise, walk, be active. Keep the blues away as well as the virus, the fight is on multiple levels. I’m going try to be more engaged in songs, writing, art, essays. It’s the only way for me to remain sane and generate income. I will share all of it with you— as its being created for the first time.
Many of you know that the escalation has led to months and months of show cancellations. I’m turning to very limited savings and online work to survive. I wanted to let you know that my work will be in these places on line— the kids have got to eat! Please join in if you can!
How to Support My Work
Patreon at $1 a month
I am focusing on sending people to my Patreon page, Ellis Island, which already is very active with songs and live streamed and archived performance content but also will hold a podcast, interviews, essays that move beyond music into social commentary both light and serious. It’s like a one man Netflix. Please join, it’s next to nothing. I will try to spread music and sunshine there in the next few months.
I’ve made all the video content available for only $1 a month, to allow you to share your funds with other artists, charities, and organizations in need. There are higher tiers as well, with downloads, mailed items, house concerts, tickets, discounts, custom songs and more, but I want to make sure you share what you can with others as well, I’m one of many thousands.
All Patreon supporters will have access to a new version of "The World Ain't Slowing Down".
Come to Ellis Island and consider it your staycation destination 🙂 Please share this!

Live Streamed Shows
I will be doing a weekly, live streamed concert residency at the site starting on Thursday March 19th at 7:30pm. And then continuing weekly on Thursdays there. And I likely will be putting stuff up several times a week. It’ll all be archived. I may be doing shows that collectively are for musician charities, stay engaged with the website for not information.
