Hello music friends!
So…I’m going to make a new record! Okay, so it isn’t likely going to be released as a vinyl record. Not at first, anyway (you never know what could happen in the future). But still…I’m saying it out loud. I’m putting it in writing. And that makes it real. And I am *wicked* excited about it. If it’s been a while since you’ve been to a show, a lot of my new music is growing in an interesting new direction, so lots of songs on the next record will – gulp! gasp! – have a band behind me. I am so, so pumped for this! And wanted to share with you. Of course.
It always strikes me as funny how hard it is to express the sentiment of jumping-up-and-down-ridiculously-excited in an email message. Do any of you know if there’s an emoticon for this?
Anyway, here’s a fun little home demo of one of my “this will be on the new record” songs from a rehearsal with my good friend and BBR partner Dan Cloutier on the electric guitar. Enjoy, and feel free to help me share it around! (Can you tell I’m excited!?) (I am SO excited!!!)
And in the meanwhile…

I interviewed new mom Mary Casiello – talented Berklee grad, singer-songwriter, and pianist extraordinaire – for Mamapalooza. She was wonderful in sharing her thoughts on what it takes to keep music alive during the “new mom” transition time. Check out this 2-part interview:
