Tune in on SiriusXM Channel 14 on Wednesday April 26 at 3pmET/NoonPST as I'll be playing a 5- song set live from New York City.
Just got the thrilling news this AM that "Pearl" is nominated for an Academy Award.
Director Patrick Osborne is such a formidable story-teller (he won an Oscar 2 years ago for "Feast" so lets hope lightning strikes twice). I got to write the lyrics and co-write/produce the music with my dear Pollen Partners, JJ Wiesler and Scot Stafford for this timeless father-daughter story, set inside their roving home, an 80s hatchback named.....Pearl.
....with 10-spins this week on the WMSR (Wildman Steve Radio) Weekly Chart 12/4/16. Steve is a veteran broadcast Program Director and his Internet station reports to the Americana Music Association Radio Airplay Chart streaming from Auburn, AL.
We've been getting a great reception at Tribeca Film Festival to "Pearl" and "No Wrong Way Home," the song JJ and I wrote for it. The Press seems to like it too!

So proud have sung the male part on (former Disney Legend) Glen Keane's stunning animated short "Duet" which has just been shortlisted for an Oscar. Pollen Music Group produced the music, which was composed by our very own Scot Stafford.
