On April 20th I lost my dear friend, fellow musician and one of the best guys I know, to a long battle with cancer. He leaves behind a loving wife, a young son and many friends. 100% of the proceeds of Covering Life – the album I worked on with Paul – will go directly into The Noah Tyler College Fund (for Paul’s son). I will also be gathering many of his other musician friends for the benefit concert. Please keep an eye out for details.
Thanks to my art director, Molly Tuttle, who sprung this iPhone video shoot on me when we walked in for what, I thought, was a photo shoot. The first thing we saw when we walked in was a beautiful Parisian flower shop called MESSAGES… Molly and I took it as a sign!
Messages, features lush orchestral arrangements which incorporate a blend of rock, Americana and a hint of Middle Eastern sounds that are the background for Michelle’s original songs and beautiful vocals.
Oh, and check out my incredible band…
As I write this I am sitting in St. Germain at the fountain in front of St. Sulpice, enjoying the beauty of Paris. I spent August at Pine Mountain Studio recording my latest record “Messages” with my most talented band. We will introduce the new record at our 5th annual Meals on Wheels SF Benefit Concert at the new SF Jazz Center.
