Fall 2016

Dear Friends,

With fall upon us I thought I’d write this little note, welcome you to my site, and let you know  about my new album, coming out on October 14th...

“Sorrows & Promises: Greenwich Village In the 1960s” explores the origins of the singer-songwriter movement that had its genesis right here on the streets of my neighborhood in downtown Manhattan. Bringing this music and era to life has been a fantastic journey, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with an extraordinary creative team. Very special guests on the album include John Sebastian and Dion singing and playing on songs they wrote in 1964-65, as well as Nellie McKay, Allison Moorer, Jenni Muldaur, The Kennedys, David Amram (a favorite musician and composer in his own right among many whose songs are represented on the album) and others. The album was produced by Steve Addabbo, with A&R direction by writer Mitchell Cohen, whose historical liner notes are included inside. Images and design were by my brilliant friend NathanielHL. Some of the artists whose songs we covered include Janis Ian, Fred Neil, The Velvet Underground, Eric Andersen, The Lovin’ Spoonful and more, all from roughly 1960-67. The musical energy of that incredible blast of self-expression inspires to this day.

You can be part of the project by pre-ordering now on CD or vinyl LP now at the PledgeMusic site, where you can watch the promo video, view updates and photos, order personal experiences - and you will receive an instant download of the album with your order. You can also pre-order the album at the iTunes Store and receive two songs immediately. 

I’d be delighted to have you onboard for this little road trip to another time in this very special place. 

All my best,
