It’s getting to be that time of year again when Little Steven’s Underground Garage polls its listeners to find out what the COOLEST song of 2017 is! If you thought “I Know” from my new record was the Coolest Song of 2017, head over to the Underground Garage and give it a vote! It was Coolest Song in the World the week of July 28th.In addition to the voting, you can also enter the The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Punta Cana contest. First place prize will receive: round-trip airfare for 2, a 4-night, all-inclusive stay and $500 resort credit at the Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana! You may vote for their favorite “Coolest Song” once every 24 hours, and may enter the Hard Rock Punta Cana contest as many times as you want. The “Coolest Song of 2017” winner will be announced on January 1st, during Kid Leo’s “Coolest Songs of 2017 Revisited Annual Year End Review” show on Sirius XM-21 where Kid Leo will play all 50 “Coolest Songs” of 2016

Really grateful to Little Steven Van Zandt for mentioning myself, along with Kurt Baker, Soraia and The Connection in an interview with Forbes this month. Little Steven has been a champion of rock n’ roll for many years now, and his continued support for artists such as myself is appreciated more than he could ever know. Thanks Little Steven!
ALSO: Don’t forget, I’m coming to a town near you with The Dirty Gems THIS NOVEMBER! Just added Ralph’s Rock Diner in Worcester, MA! Check out the “Shows” tab for show details and tickets!
Hey freaks! Gearing up for a big weekend with the Dirty Truckers down at the famous Midway Cafe in Jamaica Plain this Saturday, Oct. 14th! Also joining the party will be WATTS, and AM Stereo!

Hear what people are saying!
“A fresh and refreshing album of great songs arranged perfectly and played to the highest standard for our listening pleasure.” – Uber Rock
“‘Losing The Frequency’, a high octane homage to the old days of AM radio. Expect huge hooky choruses and summer vibes with the piano out there, front and centre.” – Real Gone Rocks

I’m pumped to announce that I’ve got a new single coming out in a few weeks, “Rock n’ Roll Radio”, with b-side(?) “Let Go”. This is a preview of Losing the Frequency, out this fall. Featuring Kurt Baker on bass, Tom Hall on guitar, Craig Sala on drums, mixed by Wyatt Funderburk, mastered by Dennis Mortensen, written and produced by yours truly. Out 3/30!

Happy New Year to all you rock n’ rollers out there! And everyone else too, I guess. 2016 is going to be a great year for rock n’ roll and I hope to see you all at some point before 2017! I’ve got a lot in the works with a new album, new EP to follow, heading back to Spain, jamming with friends, and much more!
This month I’ll be heading out west to sit in with fellow garage rock n’ rollers Soraia, at Echoplex in L.A. for the The Muff’s 25th Anniversary show! Also on the bill as direct support is Prima Donna, so it’s not one you want to miss if you’re in the area! It’s a Little Steven’s Underground Garage show, as well as being hosted by Mighty Manfred of The Woggles, and a great UG DJ in his own right. I’ve got more news for this April, but first let’s get pumped for L.A.!
