I filmed these will at sea back in February. The sound of the ocean, an unfettered sky are very calming and feel appropriate to re-share during this time along with a few of my favorite inspirational ocean quotes.
“Life is like the ocean. It can be calm or still — rough or rigid, but in the end it’s always beautiful.”
“Dream higher than the sky and deeper than the ocean.”
“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.”
Nothing like the live experience with everyone together as one in the music.:::
ALL of my upcoming shows have been cancelled or postponed, no bookings being accepted until further notice – health and wellness are of utmost importance during this pandemic.
Love, good health and positive vibes to all until we see each other again in the live setting. I’ll be writing more, reading more books I’ve been wanting to get to working on projects (Spring EP is done and being mixed..working on Summer w new collaboration with The APX), listening to lots of music, still getting my cardio and workouts at home and hopefully a maintain a healthy lifestyle. What else? Definitely watch some NBA classics, documentaries, continue learning about business, maybe binge watch shows I’ve never seen only heard about .. doing more things I enjoy around the house, maybe I’ll finish my memoir too, get my sketch book out, take more naps and rest …times like these remind us not to take things for granted, that’s why living in the moment is always important, especially when you’re having a good time, things can change in an instant.
Already a longtime self-isolator so that part won’t be hard. I’ll continue posting and staying connected with you each day.
The impact will be strong for many musicians, independent contractors workers of all types ,families, young students and so on – here’s to all of you making it through ok too.
Ps..stop buying up all the TP (lol) keep a sense of humor.. don’t lose sight of kindness when you’re in the stores stocking up on food and necessities, stay diligent but calm.. and please don’t forget the elderly, donate to programs that will continue to provide for children who may not have food now that there is no school at the moment..

At sea for a few days and made sure to take in the natural sounds of the ocean as often as I could. I even slept with my cabin door open to hear it at night while going to sleep – no need for the app when I had the authentic thing!
It was a must as well to appreciate the unspoiled sunrise and sunsets. Wherever you are it’s important to take a moment of pause. Breathe in – deep breaths out a few times a day.
Set a reminder in your phone if you need to.
Find your calm when you need it.
“A calm mind brings inner strength and a self confidence, so that’s very important for good health.” – Dalai Lama
The first time I performed the tribute to George Michael was 2016 not long after he’d passed away..it’s still hard to fathom. Since then I’ve included it in my concert a few times including Unplugged this summer in Hawaii where I was able to share more of the back story and add a few more music bits as well.
I’ll be a special guest with Taylor Dayne and Lisa Lisa on these dates doing a few early solo classics:

January 31, 2020 – Theatre at Westbury, Westbury NY
