*APRIL 2020 MESSAGE: For as long as local live music and travel are on lockdown, I’m doing a weekly live stream of both original songs and covers (usually with a different theme each week) at my Facebook page. Please tune in live or afterwards if you’re able!
NEXT STREAM: Wednesday, April 8, 4 pm EDT – Frank Turner Cover-a-thon, Part I
The schedule and info below might not be relevant during this time, as things are changing every day and much of it might be canceled. Stay safe and try to stay positive, everyone!
BOOKING: I’m always looking for opening slots and paid gigs locally in New Jersey and New York City as well as regionally. I am also willing to travel pretty much anywhere for the right tour opening slot. Please see my current press kit (PDF) here, and contact me directly with any inquiries.
Note: Busking sets, usually weekly, subject to change (feel free to contact me to confirm)
