Jazz. Soul. Rap. And... More jazz. The Feel is the first track from this lovely RC & the Gritz release entitled, The Feel! That's right. Fans of groups like The Internet and Hiatus fans should feel this. The album is well worth a listen!

BRAND NEW: Wine Drinking Music!

Jazz hands! Jazz hands!

I'm happy to announce a new project I've been working on called, Wine Drinking Music. What's Wine Drinking Music? Is it music you want to hear with you favorite bottle of vino?  I hope so!

Wine Drinking Music is an "acoustic", somber, mellow, cool jazz project I've been quietly working on.  It's emotive, with a hint of melancholy...perhaps bittersweet is a better word. Akin to a three piece jazz trio, most of the songs are simply drums, upright bass and piano. The first single drops February 12th, but you can pre-order now!

The vibe reminds me of Sundays, dinner gatherings and intimate moments with a good bottle and a friend. It's my idea of the soundtrack to whatever you're doing after you remove the cork from a bottle, be it something for now or something you've been saving for a special occasion.

The first single is called, I Wish I Was Heartless. This tune was the result of feelings after an argument. It has nothing to do with being cold, unkind or negative, but more so the desire to rid oneself of all the tension and feelings of conflict that we often have right after these moments. It's the spark of love in the midst of a temporary war... It's frustration and confusion...How did we get here? It's the longing for peace in a heart-space full of mixed emotions and turmoil. It's the sound of one sitting in a room, reflecting on the past, hoping for a loving future and considering this present moment...with a full glass.

It's pensive and familiar. We've all had our share of storms and disasters. 

Be cool.
