New Track: “Someday (Live)” / New Book: “Music, Lyrics, And Life”

NOW LIVE ON ALL STREAMING SERVICES Someday (Live) Recorded at the 2019 Mike Errico Holiday Show Rockwood Music Hall, NYC You good? I hope so. Here’s a very special live version of “Someday,” with Gabriella De La Cruz on background vocals and Matt Beck on electric guitar. This song seems to get more relevant every year, and I feel grateful to be able to play it for you. Can I ask a favor? Small favor, not “Could you drive me to the airport?”-level favor. Simply this: Tell a friend about the song. Sounds like not a big deal, but it’s the single greatest thing you can do to bring others on board.

Someday (Live) Recorded at the 2019 Mike Errico Holiday Show Rockwood Music Hall, NYC Release Date for streaming: July 20, 2021 I’ve always loved playing “Someday” live, and this version is special. Former student Gabriella DeLa Cruz sang backgrounds, and I asked guitarist Matt Beck to go noir, “like it’s in a David Lynch film or something.” It was a highlight of a beautiful night, and as we open back up, it’s a reminder of the return of live music.
