About 'Honey up' 

The Basics:

I am excited to share news that my third record Honey Up will be released worldwide on July 6, 2018!! Since 2014, I have been fortunate to grow an amazing music community with tremendously supportive fans and friends. As I launch my third album, I would appreciate your support in helping me remain an independent artist, free to make music that represents my vision. I hope you'll join me as we continue forward in this incredible journey together.

**Exciting Announcement! Special Matching Sponsor!**

I have been so fortunate to have longtime supporters approached me offering  to match all contributions up to $5,000 on this project, effectively doubling every dollar that we raise through this crowdfunding and promotional campaign! If you're interested in becoming a matching sponsor, please contact me.

 

A Little About My Upcoming Album Release and 2018 Tour:

My third CD, titled Honey Up, includes 10 songs, with 9 of my originals (lyrics and music all written by me) and 1 cover of the fan favorite, Love Me Like A Man

This album is a snapshot in time of what I enjoy writing/playing/singing and brings together my diverse inspirations and ideas and, on this album especially, more of my personality. Of course, there’s always a purpose to some of my songs as they are based on things I struggle with, like why we can’t listen and respect each other, why we can’t work to find common ground, and why we can’t find our way out of the small boxes we place (or accept) in our lives, but even those songs drive us forward and the music is upbeat and funky.

 

Similar to my previous records, the songs on Honey Up pay respect to the traditions and roots of blues music, but branch out with my own blend of rock, funk, gospel, NOLA, and soul grooves and, of course, my love of the saxophone. Each song is different and I hope you find a favorite (or two or three…)!!
