FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE MONARCH WITH JOSEPH PIILONEN

This passed Friday, I performed an acoustic set for Redpine Music Night at The Monarch Tavern - doing tuness off my new record "SHIFT" with the the backing of the talented Joseph Piilonen on guitar. 

I got off the stage feeling so expressed ! I was able to just find so much freedom as he is so tasteful in his accompaniment. Minimal yet so present in his choices - I was able to just sing my heart out.

Expressed and still Smiling.
