There are three artists I'm currently working with and I'm so excited about being involved as these teens spread their wings in their musical journey. I've been managing and writing with all of them and we are creating songs I hope will resonate with you.
17 year old Riley Lynch is currently touring the New England area and I'm often joining him on stage playing guitar while he belts out his songs – it's truly amazing to witness him expand his fan base, become a more seasoned performer, and write more mature songs customized for his incredible voice. We are about to film his first feature music video for “Holding Stars” and I will be sure to let you know when it's released!
17 year old Julia Russo is truly one of the most gifted lyricists I have ever worked with. We have such a wonderful way of co-writing, as I am usually the composer and she the lyricist. We are currently in the studio finishing her first 7 song CD of original songs (untitled at this writing) and I'm helping her get her feet wet on stage as well. Julia's voice is so unique – unlike any I've heard and I'm thrilled to be working with her.
19 year old Allie Martocci is about to burst onto the teen scene – she's already played the Middle East in Boston, and next up at Revolution Music Hall in Long Island. We are in the middle of finishing two more songs before heading into the studio for recording! Allie has a power-house voice and a rock and roll attitude – I know the path is wide open for her to soar!!
I've got a few of my own songs in the oven and will be releasing them soon. I'm excited to get out and perform with my band, or at songwriter rounds so check out the tour page and come say hello!
A shout out to ALL my vocal and guitar students (45 of them!) who continue to amaze me every time I see them and work with them. Often it is I who learns more from them, and always there is joy in the journey. I've been exploring songwriting with a number of my students and I know it's just a matter of time when I'll be singing their praises as we record and release fresh, original songs!
Music is my life, my love and my passion and I am truly blessed to be able to do what I love every single day. Thank you to all the gifted musicians who make me a better one.
Peace and Love to you all.
