Uncommon Music...for a Common Cause!

 I will be performing at this awesome charity event on September 1, 2010, alongside local Jacksonville folk/indie band, The Dundies, and my friends, The John Earle Band.  The concert starts at 7pm at The Florida Theatre, and all proceeds will go to Art With A Heart in Healthcare!  The ticket price is a suggested donation of $10...but you can give what you feel is right, no matter if it's less or more! 

Musicians accompanying me:
Joshua Bowlus | Jacksonville, FL | Keys

Pasha Sabouri | Austin, TX | Violin

Amy Harris | Austin, TX | Violin

...and special appearances by surprise musicians!

I will be donating $5 of every "September in the Garden" CD sold at the event to Art With A Heart in Healthcare. 

Can't make it to the show? Purchase the CD by Sept. 1st HERE and $5 will still be donated. :)

Art With A Heart in Healthcare is a nonprofit organization that provides professionally guided personalized art experiences that enhance the healing process and bring comfort, joy and hope to patients and families in crisis.

Making A Music Video

I met Geoffrey Gan at Square One Nightclub in San Marco, FL last Friday.  He was there to see Charlie Walker play, whom he has shot a couple of music videos for.  We met for lunch this week & discussed shooting a music video for "Lilac Wine", which will be the first single off of the UK release of September in the Garden.  Yesterday, Geoffrey & I traveled down to Palm Coast, FL, to check out Washington Oaks Gardens State Park, which is where Jake Roth shot my all-time favorite photo EVER (you can see it here).  We found the perfect spot!  The "Lilac Wine" music video will be filmed on Monday, and will be edited by July 31st so that Geoffrey can enter it into the EU Jacksonville Music Video Film Fest & Contest.
