Click flyer to zoom in for detailsI just finished making the flyer for the next Song Story Live! It’s going to be a great night of stories and songs. And if you become a “Patron” on Song Story’s Patreon page, you can even get free tickets.

Also, check out this week’s latest episode, which was told on stage by James Dalton at the last Song Story Live!. James is a singer/songwriter and DIY touring expert on tour in Europe this month, but he also played harmonica and mandolin on my album, Disconnect, on songs like “Six Weeks in Jersey,” and “Autumn in LA.”

Song Story logoI’ve never danced so much while editing a segment. If you don’t get up a dance while listening to Nicole Atkins’s, “Girl You Look Amazing,” you may not have feet. After David Byrne came to her in a dream with the song’s hook, Nicole went to Sweden to brake down the walls of her own style and made an after-hours disco rock album that’s truly inspired.

Also, I’ve cemented the next Song Story Live!, which will be June 17, at The Saint. Check out the details in the sidebar to your right.

Song Story logoI cannot believe how great this week’s segment of Song Story came out! It features Arlan Feiles telling the true story behind his song, “Viola,” which is based on civil rights martyr, Viola Liuzzo. But this week, I’ve upped my game: Arlan put me in touch with Viola’s daughter, Sally, who was generous enough to grant a phone interview to be included in the segment, and I also have clips from Present Lyndon B. Johnson and Martin Luther King, Jr. worked into the story.

You can find more information about Viola by watching the documentary, “Home of the Brave,” about Viola Liuzzo, right now on Netflix, and visit her daughter’s Facebook page about Viola to learn more.

Song Story logoI’m so excited about my newest segment of Song Story. It’s the first one that I really edited together. Each segment has been like a new experience. I brought on Laura as Script Supervisor, which is super helpful. I also used the song throughout the segment, unlike last time, which I intend to do in most Song Story segments.

I interviewed the inimitable Sarah Donner, who just hit her $10,000 funding goal on Kickstarter, which means she’ll be gracing us with her 6th album very soon. This song is about her mother and about the start of spring in NJ. It’s called, “Signs of Life.”

Song Story logoI’ve been quietly working on this project for a while, and it’s finally beginning to poke its head out in public. I’m creating and hosting a podcast called “Song Story,” which features songwriters telling the true stories behind their original songs. The Storytelling Night at The Saint that I hosted last week was a big step in the process of bringing the show to life.

The first season will be 13 episodes, each with 3-4 segments, each about 8-10 minutes long. I’m learning the publishing process, so I’ve created a sample segment to be the guinea pig. This first sneak peek features the story behind and alive performance of my song, “Little Love Notes,” which will be on my forthcoming new album.

This segment was recorded live, at The Saint, though the full eventual show will feature both live and pre-recorded interview segments. I hope you enjoy it and find Song Story on social media everywhere, @SongStoryShow.
