Unofficial Summer 2015

Unofficial Summer 2015

Posted on May 27, 2015 in News

I’m still amazed when I look at pictures I’ve taken of this place- a place I dreamed of and actually sketched as a child, long before I came here- now home. It’s surreal and makes complete sense at the same time. A literal dream come true, and I have to remind myself of this when the traffic starts building and […]

Voices, Brothers & Birthdays

Voices, Brothers & Birthdays

Posted on April 26, 2015 in News

How appropriate that March and April brought birthdays for our beloved namesake, Vincent van Gogh, and me, as the van Gogh Brothers and Voices of van Gogh clocked another whirlwind as the calendar moved into and through Aries since we last checked in.  Voices of van Gogh slammed our inaugural SRO show at Casa Escobar Malibu on March 22nd, and I immediately […]

Our new album is finally in its finishing stages and will be ready for an April release. Another body of work and another new beginning in a beautiful life of change, hope, love and creation. Voices of van Gogh takes the best of my work in Boston with our beloved van Gogh Brothers and combines it with the spectacular talent […]

Feels like old times today as I unexpectedly fly into Boston in time for record snowfall and the Patriot’s parade… I think I’ve now fully made the transition into a native Angeleno! It’s been another incredible few weeks of holiday celebrations, recording, performing and tlaunching our new ensemble, “Voices of van Gogh,” a spin-off of our beloved, Boston-based van Gogh […]

We’re flying into 2015 with new songs, a nearly-complete new album and bookings for selected live shows, both East and West. Happy Holidays to you and thank you for following the crooked, Northbound road of our musical journey. The big news is the culmination- and combination- of our work in Boston and Los Angeles in an expanded line-up of American […]

We all have our calling in life, and sometimes that voice is louder than others. Sometimes we hear it loud and clear and we ignore it, and things go wrong for us and we wonder why until we start listening again. Sometimes we hear it but we’re afraid to answer it, thinking it doesn’t make sense in our notion of […]

Scarlet and I wrote “The Sacred Wheel” last spring, after our first few months of writing together. We recorded the song in late September, one of a group of tracks that form the nexus of our new album, now about halfway complete. Our new musical consort, Quinn, added his magic on drums and percussion, and in early October we sent […]

I am in New England for the autumnal equinox and the birthdays of the two most important women in my life, Kathy, and my daughter, Caroline. What joy! There is no time like September in New England. The beauty of the area is packaged in warm dry air with cool nights and near-summer days, and just a hint of change […]

As I said to someone recently, “Life’s not perfect, but most days it’s pretty close.”  And nothing could have put that into perspective more than seeing Jamie Walker and Paul Kochanski when they were in LA to perform at the Getty with Grammy Nominee, Alistair Moock.  I met Jamie in 1994, shortly after returning to songwriting after a 12 year […]

I thought it would be fun to post Kathy’s recent “Surfer Boy” picture of me to mark our first year in California– what a year it’s been!  California has been everything I hoped it would be and more.  After 2 + years of making the monthly commute from Boston, I thought I had a pretty good idea about what it […]
