New Song “Nothing in the Open”

Check out another new tune – Nothing in the Open – about secret love affairs.

This video was recorded at Virtue & Vice Studios in Brooklyn, NY. Patrick Mandeville filmed and edited. The song was written by yours truly and featured the immaculately talented:

Marques Walls – Drums
Alan Stevens Hewitt – Bass
Cian McCarthy – Piano
Saum Eskandani – backup vocals
Jenn Mundia – Backup Vocals

We will be hitting the studio in 1 MONTH (insert crazy faced emoji!!) to record our follow up to “Wander Years.”

Our next show will be on Sunday, March 27th at 11pm at Rockwood Music Hall in New York City. It’ll be our 4th Easter Hop and will feature some smokin’ guests and a guaranteed fun evening.

 

Hello again/Music in a short film/A Lullaby music video coming soon

Hello again,

So, after a few months of laying low and staying quiet, I’m back! I’ve been on the road guitar-ing for Flashdance the musical, exploring some new and old corners of America all the while writing  new songs and working on new projects. Some of which are discussed below.

Music in a short film

Two songs from ‘Wander Years‘, Follow Me Before/Follow Me After are featured in Blue Barn Pictures’ newest short film Moving On that just hit the web this week.

Moving On is about two girls in Brooklyn who are dealing with the end of their relationship. Are they ready to move on? Find out HERE.

The film, written by Jim Baker and directed by Andrea Fuma.

Moving On is honest, touching and beautifully shot.

A Lullaby music video coming soon

While on the cinematic train of thought – the music video for the song ‘A Lullaby’ is in it’s final stages of production and will hit the net (hopefully) during the early days of June. I’ve been working with a longtime friend and incredibly talented cinematographer, Patrick Mandeville and with another a good friend/So You Think You Can Dance finalist, Ellenore Scott to come up with, what I believe to be, a well-formed and graceful visual representation of the song.

Here are a few screen shots to build some excitement:

The Brainwash Music Video – [OUT NOW]

Well… my nephew might be getting a little more attention than me these days and I’d be jealous… only… he’s SO GOOD!

Perry Sherman directed and edited the video. Marques Walls and Alan Stevens Hewitt are a dream team band and I’m lucky to know them. It should be credited that the apartment used for the party scene is in fact Marques’ humble abode, along with Jamie Little. Andrea Setaro made her acting debut as “the lady doing laundry.” That adorable girl who lost to Roman in the game of Connect 4 is my niece, Reyna.

The party attendees include:

Tim Boreky, Stacy Davidowitz, Anthony Lee Medina, Jamie Little, Molly Little, Dan Schaub, Amanda Rosenburg, Janet Young, Suzy Quinn, Scott Isenberg, Ivan Reibeisen, and my Mom and Dad (for a split second.)

Check out the music video here and let us know what you think:

The Brainwash music video – [COMING SOON]

My pal Perry Sherman (the other mind behind the first Trace McKensie video) and I started working on the very first “official” music video from Wander Years for the song “The Brainwash.” The video features my nephew – Roman Auth – as the main character, and ladies, he is a star.

Check out the song here:

There isn’t an official release date for the video yet, but you will know when it’s out. Trust me.
