I turn 45 years old on Nov 14th! November is always a deep month for me as we fold into winter and the world turns brown and gray and then white with snow. I’m a lucky man who has been able to carve out a creative lifestyle with the support of my family, friends and my super incredible wife LeeAnn. I love you!

I hope to see many of you at gigs this month. All the best!
