Sweet Life, the new CD on Compass Records, will be out on 9/9/08!  You can now hear tracks and pre-order at Compass Records.  The album will also be available for download as of 9/9, on itunes, and EMusic.  The Sweet Life tour starts in September, including a show at Joe's Pub in NYC on the eve of the release.  Please join my mailing list here at for the most up to date news.

In tandem with the release of Sweet Life, I'm launching an initiative called Aspire to Inspire, to give guitars to aspiring musicians who can't afford them.  This initiative is something I've wanted to do for a long time, since I was given a guitar as a teenager. Our first giveaway is through the ASCAP Foundation and the Fresh Air Fund.  On the CD release day (Sept 9) I will be awarding 15 guitars to young guitar students identified by guitar teachers at Fresh Air Camps.  For more info on how to donate or get involved, please go to Aspire to Inspire, the endowment I've started online.  

I have a fan page on Facebook...  finally!  Go to MY FACEBOOK PAGE to join my group!  

From August 27-September 2, listen on your public radio station or itunes podcast for the Etown (link) show I was on with the Barenaked Ladies, taped in front of a sold-out crowd at the Boulder Theater.  I'm sure a good percentage of the fun we had can be squeezed through the cyber universe, directly to your ears.

Finally, I would like to express my sadness at the passing of singer/songwriter Katie Reider.  She touched so many of us with her gorgeous songs and voice.  She died at age thirty, on July 14, leaving behind her partner and their two young children..  Go to to hear Katie's music and read about her life.    

See you out there!
