Hello! I have begun to migrate from my old site to this one, in an effort to create something more authentic, whatever that means. I have known for a while now that the one-word identity of ‘composer’ (and worse, the two-word identity of ‘serious composer’) wasn’t quite doing it for me, but was unsure of how to break away from it. So lately I’ve been performing more, writing songs (including my own lyrics), and of course, my work with Carla Canales and the Canales Project keeps me busy most days. So this will be an experiment, a work-in-progress, an ongoing document of my musical adventures—and who knows what else?—here in New York and beyond. I humbly thank you for tagging along.
