What Happens In Brazil…

It’s a beautiful 65 degrees today here in Yardley, PA.  I mean, it’s no 90-degrees-on-the-beaches-of-Rio, but i’ll take it.   It’s great to be back in the states with some renewed energy and great new ideas. This is going to be a knock-out year, and I can’t wait to roll out all the exciting events.

Brazil Tour 2011
Brazil was an absolutely incredible experience.  This has long been a dream of mine, and I never could have expected I would end up playing 8 shows in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.  Hopefully, you were following my adventures on Twitter and Facebook.  My blogging got a little side-blogged.  Blogging is hard!  But I was keeping track of everything. So over the next few days, I’ll be posting all my stories, and pictures, and videos to the blog to catch you up – you can see the first few posts there now.  In the meantime, check out these great videos, care of my good buddy Denise Reis…

Upcoming Shows
Now that I’m back, let’s get right to business.  I’ve got some shows coming up back on the east coast (of the united states), and I’d love to see you there.  I’ll probably tell some Brazil stories, and share some new music with you.

NYC = Googie’s Lounge, Thurs Feb 24 @ 7pm

If you need me, I’ll be doing lots and lots of laundry.  and getting all of the sand out of my wallet.
