Hello, you beautiful person, you!
It's good to see you again. It's been way too long (again.) So much to tell...so let's get right to it!
You may or may not have heard the news. However, due to life, family and personal circumstances, the time has come for me to leave Chicago (and Illinois.) In short, I am leaving Classical Blast. This is, by no means, done with any malice in my heart or in my soul. CB, as a whole, has had some of the best and most talented musicians that I've ever had the joy, privilege and honor to work with, to create with, to share the stage with, and to know. Classical Blast has definitely helped me to be a better musician, a much more patient person and a better human being all around. I will definitely miss each and every one on that team. My last gig with them (tentatively) will be Saturday, September 24, 2016 (show still TBA.)
And yes - I have been stating that I will officially release some new solo material for years and years now. In fact (after counting and not to include any works with KAVUS or Classical Blast,) it has been over 8 years since I have released ANY albums or solo work...
My first and newest single, "Reason," is currently being processed! It is set to be released (fingers crossed) on Tuesday, September 13, 2016! It features my good friend and talented drummer, Nik Wielgus! "Reason" will be available for digital download on iTunes, Spotify and other streaming outlets very soon!
To celebrate (and to "kill two birds with one stone," per se,) I am excited to announce that I will be making my return to solo music in as well as making my debut appearance on WGN Radio 720AM! WAHOO! I'll be appearing on Pretty Late with Patti Vasquez for her Music Mondays segment on Monday, September 19, 2016! In addition, I'm bringing a full band - to include Thomas Rocha on electric guitar AND Nik Wielgus on drums (FULL kit, thank you!) :p Be sure to spread the word and to tune in! In Chicago, 720AM radio. You can also download the WGN Radio (Chicago) app on your smartphone and listen live. You can also hear us on the web at: www.wgnradio.com
. Wanna call in that day? Call us at 312-981-7200! Again, I'll be on WGN Radio via Pretty Late with Patti Vasquez from 11pm to 2am on Monday, September 19, 2016. Tell everybody!
So, see? LOTS going on! I'm planning on releasing other singles this year before the end of 2016 as well. As always, if you want to keep updated with my whereabouts, upcoming shows, etc, just sign up for the email list (which I'll get better at updating and sending, btw...)

Hope to see you at a show (or over the radio waves soon!)
Peace, Love, Music, Laughter Forever!
