New Album and Other News

"55" Album Cover!

Hello my friends—

After a year of work I have a new album! All the things I dreamed I would gain from it, actually happened. I just wanted to get better. At writing, at playing, at producing. This is a life long ride. Every album needs to reach new ground! Otherwise, why bother? There’s a new song below for you. It’s one of my favorites....and it's the first track on the new album. It's titled “Cosmos”. It’s a simple song of gratitude, and one of my favorites.

Here's a download link to the song:

And I’ve finally healed up! My hand is doing quite well after surgery in December. Thanks for all the kindnesses regarding it. I am heading out this weekend to test the fingers onstage at Motorco Music Hall in Durham, NC on Friday and Jammin’ Java in Vienna, VA Saturday night. My touring life will pick up greatly in March! This year I will be celebrating 30 years on the road since the release of my first album Say Something. That was 23 album ago!

I will be traveling all over the East Coast with the gifted Radoslav Lorkovic beside me on keys. He brings a lot of energy and joy to my songs. Treat yourself to a show and come on out! New songs, old songs, and some in-the-moment laughter.
If you are interested in hearing more of the album— go get it! I’m thrilled to say that the whole album 55 is available to PATREON members and fundraiser contributors as a download! The fundraiser ends on March 1st as does the lowest tier on PATREON. ($1) Hope you will join up for either by clicking below. The album won’t be officially released until May to the world and all its platforms, so join in!

THE NEW ENGLAND SONGWRITERS RETREAT is happening Sep 1-5, 2023.   If the first one sells-out, we will add a second session for the weekend of Aug 25-29, 2023.

If you are a songwriter, this retreat will change your life!

Every year, my partner Laurie MacAllister and I gather a collection of our favorite master songwriters in Chester, CT to work with 60 students that want to take a deep dive into the heart of their craft. It’s an intense, joyful, cathartic experience, that leaves everyone who enters a better artist. Students leave the weekend inspired and energized, with new songs, new ideas, and new lifelong friendships.

Laurie and I will be teaching, and I’m over the moon to announce the rest of the instructors for this year's for NESR:
🎉 Dan Bern!
🎉 Molly Venter (of Red Molly)!
🎉 Seth Glier!
🎉 Antje Duvekot!
🎉 Mark Erelli!
