Third appearance at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville 

For my third open mic night appearance at the Bluebird Cafe, I decided to play a new song from my forthcoming as-yet-to-be-named album.

My second appearance at the Bluebird Cafe! 

Monday, August 12th was the second time I appeared at the world-famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.  The first time was last month, and I was SO nervous!

But with global warming, its message has taken on a fresh and contemporary meaning. You can download it today by signing up for my email address, where you will receive updates…
