- "Lambchop" received an Honorable Mention in the International Songwriting Contest. The first prize winner was the guy who wrote Avenue Q.
- I went to The Shire Vocal Summit in New Hampshire last weekend, put on by Vinx & his wife/manager Jenn Lambert. It was the most inspiring four days of my life. If you're a musician and have the chance to go next year, DO IT.
- At the summit, I met and interviewed legendary vocalist Dolette McDonald (Rolling Stones, The Police, Laurie Anderson, Juan Gabriel), Corey Glover (Living Colour), Kenny Wesley (think Bobby McFerrin and Michael Jackson's lovechild) and Virginia Rubino (BeBe K'Roach). I'm editing these videos this week as I fight off a nasty flu. Can't wait to share them with you!
- The last day of the trip, Emily Musolino showed me around Boston. She gave me a tour of Berklee and a brief stroll past some of her old haunts. We ran into our old friend Colleen Finnegan at The Middle East. Then we had a few pints at Asgard Irish pub before heading back to the airport.
