Spanish Castle Magic- Instrumental
NEWS OF THE MONTH- JANUARY 2018
For those of you who may not know, I've had some major health issues this past year. So for health reasons, I
have to slow it down. Since all of my doctors are here, I made the decision to stay put in Illinois.
I will miss living in Franklin but I missed my family and friends here too.
I will continue to make periodic trips to L A, Nashville, Memphis and Austin, to work with artists and writers there.
Lemel Lewis and I will be doing quite a bit of gigging as a duo, this year. We call it, "Times Two".
We will be performing some of my songs, his songs and complimentary covers.
I recently sold another music stem for a science series, through a music licensing platform. I hope to do
much more in the future. It has certainly created more revenue and opportunities for my music.
Later this Spring, I hope to release my new EP titled, "Sleight of Hand". I'm also looking forward to the release of my friend
Alex Gowland's first solo album, which I performed on and co-wrote a few songs for.
I won't be at the Grammys in New York this year but I plan on returning in 2019 when the Grammys return to Los Angeles.
I've learned a lot more about the process,which I think will improve my chances of getting into the final round of nominations.
Wish me luck, as I most certainly wish all of you much happiness and success in the year to come !
Spent a great week in Los Angeles and Hollywood for the Grammys with my friends Steve Albertson and Teresa Lemaire. Steve is a well known publicist in Hollywood. A very busy man, but he took time out of his hectic schedule to show me around town. It was a great time. Saw the sights, enjoyed the local cuisine, some comedy improv and attended a couple of Grammy after-parties. The Uptown Funk After Party was a smash. it consisted of members of Funkadelics, Parliament, The Dazz Band and my friend Cliff Beach and his band. We were FUNKED up, real good ! .....and last but not least, the walk of fame and a hot dog at PINKS ! Thanks, you guys !!!
