Hey Everyone! I'll be playing in Memphis, TN at The Cannon Center with the lovely and talented Amritha Vaz on Sat. June 25.
This is a two day conference and event will bring together young adults and internationally renowned invited speakers, local speakers and music groups, in an effort to create the conditions for channeling their energies for self-improvement and community-improvement.
I will most likely be playing in the early afternoon and our set is only a half hour, so if you feel like attending the event and being part of a beautiful movement for Unity and Hope, I'll see you there!

I just wanted to tell you all about my friend and amazing musician Amritha Vaz. She's a wonderful multi-instrumentalist and composer whom I've had the honor of playing with. She has added so much of her lovely self to my music live and I hope to create more with her. I just thought you all should know about this fierce and fabulous woman. :) check her out at Amritha Vaz
Here are some photos that my other wonderful friend and sister Amanda Bloom took..

Internet is a little harder to come by than I had thought.. So I'll bring you up to date as best as I can. We spent a couple of great days I Melbourne, played two great shows and explored a bit of the city. Then, we hopped a plane to Perth o the West Coast of Australia. The weather was beautiful so we spent an afternoon at the beach playing in the waves of the Indian ocean. The coastline in this country is beautiful.. as expected, but it's still breathtaking in person. I've taken a ton of photos with my big DSLR and I'll upload those as soon as I can. I keep forgetting to take snapshots here and there on my phone so I can add them to these blogs, so sorry about that. Near Perth is a town called Freemantle which is the birthplace and resting place of original ACDC singer Bon Scott.. So we swung by and paid our respects. Here's a snap from that..
After one more cancelation and one more unexpected overnight stay in Auckland instead of Wellington, finally three days later I arrived. Things could have been worse, I could have been stranded at the various airports unable to get good rest and forced to stay at the airports. Anyway.. I'm here and the weather feels great! Strange to think at the start of this trip I was driving through a white-out blizzard. Luckily it's the beginning of summer here!! Whoooooohooooo! Very excited about that. Here's a shot of Wellington from yesterdays walk about..
I guess it's more of a shot my feet and some ocean...oh well. Good thing I recently had a pedicure. ha.
Something I absolutely love about this place so far is, every coffee shop I've been in has hot Lemon Ginger Honey. Even at the airport! Mmmmmmmm.
Hello everyone! It's been a while since I've updated.. I have spent the last few months working on music and art and traveling. I'll update you more as I release and finish these projects..so stay tuned. On another note, I'm going to attempt to bring u along on my next adventure to New Zealand and Australia! I've been lucky enough to accompany The Bouncing Souls on their tour of these beautiful countries. I have the looming feeling I will see more airports than I'd like to... But oh well.. I hope to see as much of these countries as I can. Hopefully, I'll have wifi now and then to update and hopefully I'll be holding a Koala soon and running from the Dingos.
I guess I'll see ya down under!
The flight I was supposed to be on last night was canceled due to a major power outage at the Aukland airport.. So after spending a relaxing night at LAX (air nz put everyone up in a hotel) here we are again waiting to board. Wellington, here I come!!
