i came to the city of new orleans 2.5 years ago to discuss my music with a record company. I had a hunch i might stay and that's exactly what happened. I rolled into the french quarter at 10 am, and said "I'm staying." truly, love at first sight. As has been the case with many close friends, and multitudes of others. The specifics of each story vary of course, but the general theme remains the same: this city is enchanting. I write and play music. I love sitting at cafes with friends, and shooting pool and seeing live music at night. I am originally from the the Pioneer Valley in Massachusetts, have traveled the eastern seaboard extensively, and I really love the culture I found in France. But, New Orleans is definitely home and always will be a destination for me, no matter where my life takes me. I like "going with the flow," and I feel that my life is a gift, and I do not intend on wasting that gift on things that I do not enjoy, beyond the necessary obligations that present themselves to us all, in order to keep that flow possible. I love all variety of music, good music-from Jazz to Motown to folk to Hip Hop, Blues, Rock, Indie,Classical and 90's "grunge." My favorite writers include Ralph Waldo Emerson, Hermann Hesse, Jonathan Safron Foer and many many others. I enjoy the intellectual as well as the absurd. And I love love love, the game of baseball, and my daughter Lotus, beyond compare. She lives in Virginia however, so unfortunately you will not have the privilege of making her delightful acquaintance.
Please feel free to contact me at any time with inquiries regarding New Orleans, whether you choose to book with me or not:-) I enjoy introducing people to the city, and feel that I have been given a bit of an ambassador role. Safe travels, hope to hear from you soon and cheers!
