Wild day today. Balmy like crazy this morning and a big storm bustling in and weighing everything down this afternoon. Time for an update. The orders are pouring in. Careful what you wish for is right! I can't see straight after signing, stuffing, postage metering. But I'm DEFINITELY not complaining. Thanks to our mastermind Stephanie who figures out how to keep everything organized, we're right on track!
I had the privilege to be at the Gay Men's Health Crisis Charity dinner Monday night. Hillary Clinton spoke, the Reverend Dr. Calvin O. Butts lll, Cindi Lauper sang her BUTT off, (honestly I was moved to tears, and that is no easy gig chick and an acoustic at a 1000 seat charity dinner. RIVETING!) Then Rosie O'Donnell tore the house down. And the food wasn't bad either.

Tuesday was finish up the video day. We shot in a black box studio at Columbia University. Thanks to the fabulous Emily Branham and her always lovely and charming crew.
Pedro Padilla (second from Left) manned the truck and the gear and the gaffing and gripping and hauling. Justin Francis (far right) was our DP extraordinaire, and Russell Santos (far left) was camera assistant, did a little gaffing too, and loaned us his fancy pants camera that saves right to a drive. Now that's cool. Many thanks to everyone who worked so hard for so little.
Me and Emily Branham. She directed the video for "Better After All" and edited the 'Live in New York' CD/DVD.
More soon, meanwhile we're working away setting up tour dates, sending out CDs and generally fighting the good fight. Let your radio stations know we're coming!!
All the best,
