Thank you for coming out and making our benefit for ExtraFood a HUGE success. We had to turn people away at the door. The night was magical and it wouldn’t have happened without all the support of so many wonderful folks who came out to see the show, and for al those who sent in donations. My band and I had a great time. See you next year, 3rd thursday in December. Happy Holidays…xoxo
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). Please join me in doing this in memory of Paul.
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!
To Remember You is on iTunes now, and was officially released at our annual benefit concert on December 4th! Michelle’s new record is a holiday record dedicated to the memory of her dad, who she lost early this year. Along with co-producer Ricky Fataar, George Marinelli, Marc Levine and Chris Carmichael, Michelle has created a modern holiday record with some old standards treated with a creative twist as well as some of Michelle’s beautiful new original songs that will remind you of the sweet things about the holiday season.
This was a challenging year for me. I lost my beloved Father as well as my dear friend Paul Tyler. I was filled with so much grief and spent a few months cocooned in my house until one morning I woke up, opened the windows and let some fresh air in. I called Ricky and in June I was ready to plan my holiday record, in memory of my Dad, using a lot of Paul’s equipment (which has been integrated into my 2 studios). This record is a meaningful tribute to my Dad, and I will also be thinking of my dear friend Paul as we put on our annual benefit concert on 12/4. It will be the first show in my life that my Dad will not be in the audience and it is also at my first annual benefit concert that I met my dear friend Paul…so the show will be very special.
