the 2017 'meeting my shadow' tour

The Basics:

I am excited to share news that my sophomore album Meeting My Shadow will be released worldwide on March 24, 2017!! In 2014, I released my debut album and asked for help from many of you to help me kick off my musical journey. Now, almost three years later, I am back with a lot of successes and a lot of promising projects, but still relying on great fans and family to help me reach the goal of becoming a sustainable international touring artist, while supporting a 5-piece band. So, I have decided to run some exciting pre-order and promotional packages to help sponsor my upcoming tour as I continue to expand into new markets and perform music around the world.

 

**Exciting Announcement! Special Matching Sponsor!**

I have been so fortunate to have longtime supporters and outstanding patrons of the arts who have agreed to match all contributions up to $10,000 on this project, effectively doubling every dollar that I raise through this crowdfunding and promotional campaign!

 

A Little About My Upcoming Album Release and 2017 Tour:

My sophomore CD, titled Meeting My Shadow, includes 11 songs, with 8 of my originals (lyrics and music all written and arranged by me) and 3 covers of famous songs (most requested fan favorites at my live shows).  My music is based in the blues fused with old school funk, soulful R&B, and a little New Orleans Jazz. I will be touring all across the United States supporting my 5-piece band throughout 2017.

 

A Few Successes:

  • Best of 2014 Blues Breaker by Dan Aykroyd on his BluesMobile syndicated radio show
  • Top three Finalist in the 2015 John Lennon Songwriting Competition for my song "Bad News Bears"
  • 2015 Honorable Mention in the Lyrics Only category of  the International Songwriting Competition for my song "Tongue Tied"
  • October 2017 , I was awarded the Luther Allison Jamminest Pro Award on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise
  • 2017 Blues Music Award (BMA) Nominee in the Instrumentalist - Horn category
  • Throughout 2017, I am also touring overseas with the 2017 Blues Caravan and exploring new markets across 11 countries

 

Breaking News:

My new album debuted at #45 on the Roots Music Charts on February 18 during my first week on the air and, then, jumped to #12 on February 25!! So excited and hope to keep climbing!!
