Dionne Warwick tracks released!

Happy to announce that three songs that I recorded from my drum studio made it to the new Dionne Warwick album “She’s Back”. I worked on “What A Fool Believes”, “If I Want To”, and “Two Ships”.

Patti Smith Tour!

I’m honored to be a part of Patti Smith’s 2017 tour of Italy! We are currently 2 shows in. This tour is called “Grateful” and we have shows in Parma, Turin, Sanremo, Verona, Bologna, Cremona, and Rome. The band features Tony Shanahan on bass, Jesse Paris Smith on piano, Jackson Smith on guitar and myself on drums. It has been an absolute honor to learn and perform Patti’s music with her and see her art at museums here in Italy.
