I am feeling inspired and lucky these days as a musician. There is so much to communicate, listen to and share in the current world of rhythms and melodies. And here we are more connected than ever before to the past, the present and future through the internet. I welcome you to my website and invite you to my musical world. It is often difficult to keep up with it all and it seems that social networks like facebook are winning the race but if you arrived here somehow I hope you will stay a while and feel free to communicate. Music is communication.
I am currently on tour with Melody Gardot and the band until May 6th. There is a short video clip courtesy of Piaget that features my guitar nicely - Have a listen;
