Spending time with my daughter Lauren who’s home visiting and just celebrated a birthday, as well as still proud of the recent shows with Shalamar Reloaded in California and Mississippi. Here are some highlight photo’s from the past week, music, concerts and family – remember don’t just make a living, create a life and try to fill it with good vibes and people as much and as often as you can. In this crazy unpredictable world, it’s more important than ever.

My daughter Lauren – I still look at her with joy, love and admiration today like I did back then when we did this photo session for a UK magazine.
Nothing like spending quality time. So happy she’s home for the week, still celebrating her birthday. My daughter Lauren and I girls day out.

I had a fan girl moment when Maxwell responded to my tweet and said I was still a thrill!
Flashed back on our milestone of releasing our first single “SlowDance” and the fabulous single release party at Bryan Rabin and Adam XII Present: Giorgio’s on The Sunset Strip. Feels great to have a vision, plan and be able to execute it and see it come to fruition despite naysayers and obstacles.
