PreOrder New Album: The Sun Room | Stream Single “Insomnia”

Stream the first track from The Sun Room – “Insomnia” :

Rarely, but every now and then, like-minded musicians get together to create something that transcends musical boundaries yet can reach a wider audience. To me, the music we created on “The Sun Room” is timeless. I love blues, jazz, soul, funk and this CD has all of it, performed at the highest level. I couldn’t be happier with this recording. The vibe was so great during this recording process that it was just a joy to be a part of. Well done, guys. Let’s do it again!
