It’s been a while... But now it’s time to finally come back with new music! Due to Covid-19, I was literally forced to focus on songwriting, practicing, and producing – which is a good thing! I had more time on my hands and after 17 years, I suddenly had the chance to record 15 new songs with a stellar line-up in the studio again! God opened new doors and provided supernaturally. All I can say is: I’m truly grateful and humbled. We’ll release a new song every month and two albums in due course – stay tuned!
As for the first two singles, “Love Sweet Love“ and “Trust Me": I wrote both songs over 10 years ago and had wanted to release them for many, many years! But life got in the way, I got married, had two kids and put my music career on the back burner. It’s nothing short of a miracle that I could record this song this summer with an international dream band which also features my friends from NYC, the legendary Chops Horns (Alicia Keys, Stevie Wonder, The Police, The Rolling Stones, and many more). "Love Sweet Love" is my funky expression of gratitude towards God, who has loved me and cared for me through the good and the tough times in my life. May this song encourage you and give you hope and joy in these difficult times and may it make you sing and dance!
The latest single, “Every Time”, is dedicated to the love of my life, my wife Sarah. It was written by my old buddy Alex Petrounov and his friend Sal Salvador in Nashville over 10 years ago and I had wanted to record and release this song for years! I’m delighted that it has finally happened – and it features the fantastic Odyssey String Orchestra from Pretoria, South Africa!
We look forward to performing these new songs live so I hope to see you again soon on the road!
