Detroit December Dance

Scott & Carolyn

Happy December! I’ve signed a new licensing deal with Assemble Sound and am excited to be a part of the Assemble Sound Detroit catalog. They are home to Flint Eastwood, Tunde Olaniran and many great bands !

With holidays coming, an update that my recent music is in Metro Detroit record stores and the latest is on Amazon, CDBaby and I Tunes, including my CDs “Afterthought,” “Word Attack” and “Honesty.” Earlier CDs “Is This Me?” “Secrets and Space,” “Reminiscing About the Future,” and “Dreams Can Be Your Friends” may be added soon. These earlier CDs are rare, and I’m also looking at re-releasing Detroit Energy Asylum, Rough Cut and Cubes vinyl.

Also, I’m grateful to be a part of The Grammy’s 2018 as “Afterthought” was on the First Round Ballot for Best Rock Album! Scott Dailey and the band and I also received more nominations in the Detroit Music Awards, including Outstanding CD of the Year Rock for “Afterthought”.

Some of my poetry is included in a new Detroit anthology coming out through The Michigan State University Press in 2018 – and my book is moving forward, too. With new live shows in Detroit and northern Michigan, New York and England, a new update shortly, blessings!

Love with many thanks – and Happy Holidays,

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I’ve signed a new licensing deal with Assemble Sound and am excited to be a part of the Assemble Sound Detroit catalog. They are home to Flint Eastwood, Tunde Olaniran and many great artists. Thank you, Assemble, looking forward! 

My next show is with Sean Blackman’s In Transit: The Detroit Show at The Garden Theatre on Wednesday, November 29th. Scott Dailey and I will be performing with a brillant group of fantastic Detroit musicians! Hope you can make it out – what a lineup!  Doors at 7 pm – located at 3929 Woodward Avenue, Detroit Michigan USA –

And I’m grateful to be a part of The Grammy Awards 2018 as I was on the First Round Ballot of the Grammys with my latest album, “Afterthought” for Best Rock Album! You can pick up “Afterthought” at Amazon, CDBaby and ITunes, or please write me – another way is to visit Detroit area record stores if you’re here in Michigan.

 Our show at Bands Together Against Cancer was a incredible night in October at The Loving Touch in Ferndale, Michigan-cheers to Tim Harrison and crew for a spirited show.

 With a fresh Europe tour next summer, I’ll be back out at some great festivals in 2018 and new Detroit clubs such as Tony V’s and back to some of our favorites, too so this calls for a celebration for 40 years- perhaps?

Happy Thanksgiving, Peace, love, music to a great December

After a great September with several great shows at Michigan festivals, there has been rough news everywhere-hurricanes, earthquake, terrible mass shooting in Las Vegas, Tom Petty passing away. So I’m grateful to help and be a part of Bands Together Against Cancer at The Loving Touch in Ferndale, Michigan, on Saturday night October 21st at 8 pm – we’ll be with Colleen Caffeine and The Whoremones as well as Boudoir Noir, Walk Among Us and Fashion Detroit with Stacey Jaye. 

Earlier that day, I’ll also be appearing on NPR Detroit’s WDET-FM 101.9 on Ann Delisi’s Essential Music at 12:30 pm – Tune in for Ann’s incredible show!

And please come out and support finding a cure for breast cancer, and all cancers. Proceeds from this show go to St. Johns Hospital’s Van Elslander Cancer Patients Fund. Tickets at

Last year at this time, we released our latest album, “Afterthought”, which has been nominated for many Detroit Music Awards and is receiving great reviews and airplay. I’m quite happy to be back this year with many shows, and hope you can check out “Afterthought” and some of my catalog of music if you haven’t yet. and

Cancer was the last thing on my mind, but it happened to me 4 years ago – and I’m involved in music love to raise funds for cancer patients. So hey, ho, let’s go October 21st, Saturday night at The Loving Touch in Ferndale, Michigan. We’re going to have a raw power razz of a night with bewitching songs, exhilarating pop and psychedelic soul mingled with the spirit of punky soul.

We’ve got more big updates shortly on some great behind the scenes news xo
