Well, well. Lots of cool stuff cooking. 'The Brazillionaires' is my trio that tackles the romantic and pyrotechnic music of 'choro' from Brazil. I'm currently in rehearsals with a new band to showcase my original songs. Heavy hitting...more edgy full band sound that blends old school soul and country noir sounds. Also! my amazingly talented sister who works for Harmonix (producers of 'Rock Band') is going to be designing my new website! It will feature new performance and instructional videos, new music and much more! Stay in touch and come back often!
