This was such an incredible event.

New West Records has released a provocative, cutting-edge album entitled "The Best is Yet to Come." The album features inspiring interpretations of Cy Coleman songs. Artists who participated in this project include Patty Griffin, Madeline Peyroux and Missy Higgins. Cy Coleman is responsible for timeless songs, such "Witchcraft," "The Best is Yet to Come," and "Big Spender." All tracks were arranged by the very impressive producer/pianist Dave Palmer.

The event took place at The Grammy Museum at LA Live and featured performances by Jill Sobule, Sara Watkins (of Nickel Creek), Perla Batalla and Julianna Raye.

ASCAP's Women Behind the Music series at the Highlands






I recently had the honor of shooting a wonderful evening of music. ASCAP had its inaugural Women Behind the Music series at The Highlands in Hollywood.

The evening was such an inspirational evening with such an amazingly talented group of female singer/songwriters. It featured live performances from Goapele, Rachel Assil, Liz Paige and Electrik Red. The evening was hosted by Radio Free 102.3 KJLH on-air personality Adai Lamar, and featured special guest DJ Kill Him aka Kim Hill.

A Little Piece of Home Journal

Version2WithText

Don't you wish you could always have with you a little piece of home?

With Kolo's Essex Album customized by me you can.

Santa Monica, my hometown, has many iconic landmarks and I've included some of them in this lovely journal.

The Santa Monica Carousel and Ferris Wheel
Station 26 Lifeguard station
Vintage postcards of Santa Monica
A vintage map of Santa Monica from 1940
A glassine envelope where you can add a Santa Monica bus token or some other trinket

The rest of it is for YOU to fill out yourself with what you consider to be your personal little pieces of home.

The journal can also be additionally customized by adding a 2010 calendar (standard or accordion-style) or an address book.
