Photo on 2015-10-31 at 14.28Big 2015 highlights include receiving a fresh Detroit Music Award again, this time for Outstanding Rock Songwriter of the Year – I’m really honored! Off of our 5th European tour, we began to cut a new CD/album with a new direction, brand new songs and special guests. There’s never-heard-before tracks I wrote and recorded, too-bonus! Hoping for a spring/summer release in 2016 – going back to the studio – and thanks for radio airplay in Detroit, Metro Detroit, northern Michigan, England, Italy and New Zealand.. Great shows this year with the full band at Callahan’s Music Hall and O’Mara’s Irish Pub, my second time performing on Detroit’s famous Concert of Colors with Don Was on bass, my guitarist/comrade Scott Dailey and Don’s house band! at Orchestra Hall/Max Fisher Music Center.  We also did 3 nights acoustic at the Beaver Island Music Festival in Lake Michigan, back to our 5th year at Metro Detroit’s huge Arts Beats & Eats Festival, shows at Majestic Café  (in the Majestic Theatre Detroit) and other area clubs including Stray Cat Lounge.  In October, I visited Patti Smith at her great “M Train” book reading at Michigan Theatre Ann Arbor, and also was lucky to go back to Jamaica!  Invited to the Grammy Music Awards again & congratulations to the nominees  ..everybody love, health, peace & understanding to a Happy New Year 2016  xo
