Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Merry Christmas! Belated Happy Hanukkah and cheers to the upcoming New Year. The Winter Solstice was just here with Jupiter and Saturn together in the sky. With covid sad news and so much a mess, I was just having hopeful thoughts in a weird time. Praying for the world!

If you might need last minute holiday gifts, don’t forget local books and music. “Detroit (Maiden Energy)” is in some of the best Detroit and Michigan bookstores, music stores and several U.K. bookstores and an Audiobook on Google Play, Scribed and soon to be on Audible. My book is listed on Goodreads. It’s on Barnes and Noble. It’s on Amazon. You can buy it right from me, too or at Aquarius Press. (I ordered another new shipment as the last one sold out!) There’s even singing and music in the Audiobook.

There is more news on the book coming up in 2021 while we start more recording. And thanks for reading a bit more, below..

            New Year’s Eve 2021, our “Promised Land “ video was part of the benefit for Detroit Clubs who have suffered during the pandemic, including Detroit’s PJ’s Lager House, Northern Lights, Small’s Hamtramck, Magic Bag and more for the FEZ Fundraiser with many great Detroit bands. Yes, there has been very little live music this year except virtually!

            We had a great video for a local television Christmas show which is moved to the next holiday! That’s the usual for this year but we’re now working on a video and new releases for 2021. I’m glad to be writing from my little humble spot here in the world, warm and watching snow with a guitar and piano nearby. We’ve been on holiday break and students and teachers have been so busy remotely/virtually learning. My students are great and I’m thankful to them for their humor and insights!

            We have changed some things this year and are still going. The woods and river up north and the city sounds and sights keep moving here in Detroit. I have more new songs I’ve written and Scott’s got some new pieces of music. Our band will be back with us in high energy when live shows come back.

            Love and prayers to good health, music, books, art and you.
