After a fantastic family trip to Ireland, I’m back and hitting the ground running with all kinds of gigs in the next month, all over the state.  Before leaving, however, I did some keyboard tracks for a friend’s project in Detroit, a jingle for a financial company’s TV spot (to be aired soon), and I still have some demos to finish for VERY patient friends who’ve been waiting until the dust that is my whirlwind life settles a bit in the next month.

AND, our 3rd annual Mackinac Island Songwriter’s Workshop is coming up next week!!  Wow.  Hard to believe.  The time has flown fast this year.  Really looking forward to the MISW….we’ve got some real ringers this year, including a Grammy award-winning songwriter from Nashville, and Emmy and Detroit Music Award-winning instructors as well.  It just keeps getting better every year…

That’s about it for now, kids.  Hope everybody is enjoying the fall colors and fall weather.  This is my very favorite time of year for many reasons.  Safe travels, enjoy every minute of every day as the sun shortens its appearances.  Winter’s coming soon, so appreciate autumn while you can.


Hope to see you all soon!
