Happy to announce my new EP “Illumanado” is now out on Electrofone Music. It is now available only on Itunes. More digital outlets coming soon. No physical will be made. This is album is very ambient & intimate and like my other albums have I feel an interesting story of collaborations. I was lucky to find this un discovered artist called Nicodxmvs online & quickly became a huge fan of his work and colaberated on two songs with him who then turned me on to Cody Mauser who sang on one song “How I Feel”. Long time collaborator Jamie Muhoaberac of course added his magic on the album. While I was Siberia a few summers ago while performing at a festival in The Republic of Buryatia, I did some recording & writing with some amazing musicians there. Hope you all enjoy these songs, I am very proud of this album.
I had the honor to perform for a 4th time @ Grand Performances, this time w/ Ukraine’s finest DakhaBrakha. I completely forgot I we performed last summer at a festival in Siberia “Voice of Nomads” International Music Festival. Rolling Stone magazine called them the break out band @ Bonaroo music festival this year.
My new EP is coming along nicely very lush sounding…happy to be collaborating with my boy @nicodxmvs on a few tracks as well as my longtime friend collaborator Jamie Muhoberac. Will preview some new songs at my Sept 5th in LA @ Grand Performances and will post some music soon.
