Thanks again to everyone who came out to the Tune-Out last night; I was so moved to have so many kind folks interested in hearing the new songs I’ve been working on. I’ll never forget it. Thanks to John Vettese for the kick in the pants to write 6 jams in a month. This feels like a great beginning to 2013, I’m excited for the things to come. Those who couldn’t stay for the film La Strada (and anyone who hasn’t seen it), go see it!!
