I think the music thing in Buffalo is starting to catch on finally. Two weeks ago I did a solo concert at THM (The Horses Mouth) and the place was packed.....then last week, hosted open mic there, to yet another packed house!! The best open mic night ever, Laura,THM Barista, said. And then last night, Aiden Kross and Erin Nelson Watson, performed to a standing room only audience....The Horses Mouth Bookstore and Coffee Shop is gradually turning to a live music hot spot.........Im looking forward to this coming new year to see what it brings....the first open mic is set for Jan.21.

Well.....its been a while since Ive been here, but a lot has been going on lately. I have been in the recording studio at Lou Productions, recording a CD. It was a blast, Luis is a hell of a guy to work with......I dont know who was more excited, him or me. I think we both had a large time.
We incorporated the aid of guitarist/bassist Aaron Folsom, and drummer Matt Gonzales to add to the instrumentation. The result, to me, was great. Im very pleased with the outcome.
The....this past Friday....after all of the independent work of packaging the finished product.......I did a solo concert at The Horses Mouth Coffee Shop in Buffalo, where the Cd's are now available.....the house was pretty full....it was a great turn out.....I was very moved by how much support I have. Now I know....., what I was sceptical about before...., I WILL continue on with this endeavour. Find more gigs and play more....., and more.....and more.....and......well you get the picture.....its time to gypsy on for sure.

Wow, I have so much to write about, but I need to space it out. I fell behind and I need to catch up.
I recently had the awesome oppertunity to spend time in a recording studio, courtesy of LOU PRODUCTIONS' Luis Peidra. We laid down 5 tracks for an EP that I plan on haveing ready for my solo acoustic performance at THM this coming Friday, Dec 10th. It was a real cool experiance...Lou is good at what he does. He had the product ready for me the next day, I am very pleased with it. Now he wants to do some more work to it....to make it more better. Im all for that...he makes magic happen.
Just yesturday, (friday,dec3) I met a singer/songwriter, Heather Cathleen Cox, from the Austin area. We had a really cool "get to know" visit at THM. She is an amazing talented artist. Heather is such a down to earth person, I could have talked to her all afternoon. She really has alot going for her, she loves her craft. I cant say much more at this time because she is the topic of my newspaper column this coming week.....so stay tuned....you will hear more soon.......
