From Ukraine to The Netherlands

It was a whirlwind musical week for me beginning in Ukraine where I was a featured performer at the Chernihiv Jazz Open. It was an incredible experience and once again, I was really moved by the incredible respect our friends to the East have for jazz music and culture. I hope to return to Ukraine in April as an extension of my Russian tour!

Just a few days later at the opposite end of the continent, I made my live debut with my brand new rock band, Little Neon. Alongside my co-writer and collaborator Justin Pursey, drummer Barry Van Esbroek, guitarist Sander Bus, and bassist Pim Koppen, we performed the bulk of our upcoming debut album for the first time anywhere. It was a total thrill to bring this music to life and a personal milestone for me to play original music with a band I can call my own in Europe for the first time. I can’t wait to do it again!

Stay tuned for info on more Little Neon shows as we book them as well as news on my jazz gigs and tours. In the meantime, you can check out Little Neon’s debut single “Endless Summer” on iTunes, Spotify, & more.
