All our love and gratitude to everyone who joined us for our last show at CAMEO GALLERY before the iconic Brooklyn venue closes it's doors. It was an honor to be a part of the final week, and share the stage with The London Souls and Deva Mahal. So many memories, so many friends... All our love to Jify and Mary and all our Cameo family - it was an amazing ride!
I will be playing a very special solo show at Rockwood Stage 3 on Oct 23rd to celebrate 10 years of living and making music in NYC.
