“Marigold in December” is from my latest album Nothing in the Open.
I bid thee a long and overdue hello. (wave, wave)
2014 was a collection of days that were educational, adventurous and life imprinting. While I don’t place a lot of value in giving praise or passing blame on a year, I do enjoy taking a moment to turn around and reflect on what just happened. AND, since I haven’t been the greatest at keeping up with my blog I figured I’d share a few highlights from 2014.
Touring with Flashdance The Musical
Workshopping a brilliant new musical at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center
Farewell childhood home. 😦
Family vacation/sister’s wedding at the Amalfi Coast in Italy
…followed by an incredibly challenging scooter ride along steep winding cliffs with the new family.
Making my Musical Direction debut… at my grade school alma mater. The New York Times never made it down to Alexandria but I’d say it was a smashing success.
If you haven’t seen the ‘Lullaby’ video yet yet, feel free to check it out here:
So. What does 2015 have in store? What are my resolutions? Well. We will find out together!
It’s been almost a year in the making but I’m happy to announce that the official music video for “A Lullaby,” one of my favorites off of Wander Years, is now here for your viewing pleasure!
Check out the video now:
Major thanks to:
Patrick Mandeville for his vision and direction
Ellenore Scott a beautiful dancer/choreographer
Her dancing dudes Timmy Wasserman and Jeffrey Gugliotti
The wonderful Sofia Rebelo, the actress and newly named mother of the year!
My musical brothers
Drummer: Marques Walls
Bassist: Alan Stevens Hewitt
Cellist: Alon Bisk
And production team:
Co-Producer: Maxine Medina
Cinematographer: Jamal Solomon
B-Camera Operator/Color Correcter: Wilson Mbiavanga
I’m very proud of the work we all did and I hope you enjoy!
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.)
