Family, quick update! The Vicki Randle and Friends show on June 12th has been cancelled due to a last minute scheduling conflict! We're sending Vicki huge love out on the road with Mavis Staples - and when she's back in town, we'll have another date for our jam.
Meanwhile, you can still catch some great live music in June. I'm back at 55 Bar with the incredible Chaney Sims on June 21st. I plan to unleash my new country inspired tune on the audience there... :) And we're also cookin up a li'l something for your Pride Sunday - stay tuned.....
So the incredible Vicki Randle, amazing singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist who has toured globally with HUGE acts (currently Mavis Staples) is going to be dipping into Brooklyn on June 12th for a li'l all star jam. This at the Branded Saloon, and it promises to be epic.
Other things cooking this month: I get to rock out on bass with blaKbushe at the Schomburg's African Vocies 20 Year Anniversary on June 20th. And for the EARLY SET fam out there, Chaney Sims and I are back at 55 Bar on June 21st, 6-9, hitting you with the smooth sultriness. FREE. :)
Lastly, I've been sharing a li'l musical love on youtube, highlights from the experimental set we did a li'l while back at Rockbar. Click *HERE* for a glimpse, and see you out there for more live music!
Taking a break to enjoy the blossoms and the beautiful weather! I have *no shows* in May and that feels kinda weird! Glad to take the time to take things in so I can reflect it even better in the new work. Some new songs have been born in the past few weeks, and I'm excited about where they might go.
In any case I'll be back onstage in June with some INCREDIBLY SPECIAL GUESTS, more about that as we get closer, but for now, save the date: June 12th in Brooklyn. And keep on the lookout for more 55 Bar with Chaney Sims and myself, when she comes back from touring the world with the Heritage Blues Orchestra. Thanks for stayin tuned!
Branded Saloon in March was so much fun! I'm totally a new fan of Nadia Bourne and Small Talk. I love meeting new artists and hearing their music. Also had a blast at Rockbar with Reina Williams a few days later, and of course cast a loving spell at 55 Bar with Chaney Sims.
I broke out some new tunes at Branded and tried a new trio set at Rockbar with Tiffany and Jeff Jeudy. I'll be putting up some videos on youtube from both shows. Thanks to everyone who came out and rocked with us!
Next up is 55 Bar, on the last Saturday of the month. See you there!
Thank you for staying tuned to the music! This month I'm doing a unique solo set at Branded Saloon as part of the Queer Country Monthly series. I'm really excited about this - I've got some new tunes to share, and I'm looking forward to hearing the sounds of Nadia Bourne and Small Talk.
I'm also joining up with Reina Williams for her streaming set on March 24th, and for the monthly series I host with Chaney Sims at Rockbar on March 27th (we're there every last Wednesday of the month). If you've never seen Reina perform, you'll definitely wanna check this out. She's a great songrwiter and performer.
And lastly, Chaney Sims and I play our monthly set at 55 Bar. We're there every last Saturday, and it's FREE!
See y'all out there. In love and in music,
