March Madness

March Madness

Posted on March 12, 2016 in News

It seems incredible that it was just five years ago this month that I began my monthly East-West commute between Boston and LA. I remember my first trips well and the strong sense of pilgrimage I had. My dear friend, artist Jim Beatrice, joined me on the first trip and the coincidences and chance encounters began right away. This shot […]

Full Circle

Full Circle

Posted on February 13, 2016 in News

I was speaking with Scarlet recently about current projects and she suggested the title “Full Circle” to commemorate her return to Americana music and the Northeastern US, where she’ll be touring this fall. We hope to have an opportunity to meet up for some shows where we’ve shared some history. I find that as I broaden my life, the bits of sanctity I’ve […]

Happy New Year, 2016! Life continues its torrent of change and excitement, beginning with another round of New Years’ gatherings here in Malibu, as our warm welcome continues in spite of the unusually chilly weather this year. Music brings in 2016, as it should, and I am performing with the amazing Purple Mountains Majesties right here in town as the […]

    This fantastic place I loved from afar has settled into my heart and life in Los Angeles is now beginning to feel more like pulling than pushing. The pace of change here is amazing on the one hand, as celebrity, trends and pop cultures come and go almost daily. We get to watch the media ripples move out […]

A Beautiful Life

A Beautiful Life

Another year has flown by in a life of beauty, joy and hope. I was thinking today that I am so lucky to live a life centered on the creation of music in such a beautiful place. While we all make our own choices, part of our outcome is based on good fortune, of which I have had more than my […]

November

Autumn is now in full swing and while the heat persists here in Southern California, there is also a subtle shift as the sun sinks lower in the sky and the daylight hours continue their wane toward winter. New England autumn remains in my psyche, and I feel myself moving along the curve from dry September to Indian summer and […]

Welcome back, folks! I hope you all had a fantastic summer. I sure did, and now, like you I’m sure, I’m getting carried back into the swing of things and I’m happy to be back here in LA after spending a good part of the summer on the East Coast. I love the fall and I’m glad so many friends […]

August

After two years in California, we returned to the East Coast for a month during the “dog days” of mid-July to mid-August, rounding the peak of high summer in New England. I had forgotten how beautiful the August light is as the sun drops ever so slightly lower between months, until the culmination of the long filtered shadows of September. […]

We’re back on the East Coast in bucolic Belfast, Maine, for a lengthy midsummer’s respite at Kathy’s family homestead. I get up and watch the boats rock on their moorings as the sun rises in the New England sky. Sometimes life has a way of surprising you with adventure and familiarity and this summer of 2015 is one of those […]

Oh beautiful for spacious skies… Summer is upon us and Kathy and I get to spend part of it on the Atlantic, in yet another beautiful place, leaving the mid-summer insanity of Malibu for New England “dog days” in coastal Maine. A very fortunate outcome in both our lives for sure. But first, we travel up to the Bay area […]
