"Utopia" Album Release Party @ Northside Festival - June 13, 2015

Ta-da!!! I did what i set out to do! My first self-produced album "Utopia" came out yesterday and now lives its own independent cyber life!!

Grab it on iTunes: http://apple.co/1GWPtfQBandCamp: http://bit.ly/1M2gcH6 or stream it on SoundCloud: http://bit.ly/1Mi9NrX. From a voice memo draft, to a full musical arrangement and production - I'm very proud that for the first time I was able to do it all by myself in my studio!

I cannot wait to grow and develop further, but first I want to celebrate these first 7 songs. So join and get excited with me on Saturday, June 13 @ Bar Matchless during the most edgy and trendsetting music festival in Brooklyn - NORTHSIDE FESTIVAL!

The showcase is curated by my blog www.LightMinutesAway.com with some of my favorite local bands: Krussia, Swampa_ZZ, Satorii and yours truly. 


Last Sunday, November 2nd, we were one of 150 bands along the marathon course to play music, sing and cheer for the runners. Despite hearing from my runners friends about the importance of musical support, i didn't know what to expect... 

To say that it was lots of fun is to say absolutely nothing!! It was amazingly enriching and empowering experience!!! The energy of the runners, volunteers, spectators and everybody else involved was beyond imaginable! To see 50,000 people run by you and get all lit up the moment they see you sing and cheer is an immense charge. Some would go out of their way and circle with me and my microphone, others would throw their hands up and dance while running for as long as they can hear the music!! 

If you've done it once, you have to do it again! New York City Marathon will never be the same for me!!! 

Needless to say, the next day I felt like I ran the marathon myself, as I was singing, cheering and dancing for 5 hours straight! But it is so worth it!!!

"Hush, Baby" Memory and Cancer Awareness Song

Just a few days after Christmas, my friend Lis reached out for me to help her out with a song. At the age of 28, her brother Joe was given a terminal diagnosis of a rare and aggressive cancer. Speaking her heart, Lis wrote some lyrics for Joe, which she wanted to become a song.

As Joe was taken to the hospital a few days later, I had little time to waste! I worked on the song 24 hours straight for Joe to hear it just in time and take it away with him. Two weeks later Joe passed away.

To support the efforts of the Cancer Research Institute (CRI), Lis decided to put Joe's song "Hush, Baby" on iTunes, with the net proceeds going directly to CRI. The song was released on May 1st, 2013.
