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!

Earlier this year I recorded some piano parts on a song called “7 Nights to Rock” by New England’s newest hit makers, The Connection. Little Steven’s Underground Garage on Serius/XM radio picked the track as Coolest Song of the Week back in August and now it’s up against new releases from Aerosmith, The Beach Boys, Joe Walsh and more for Coolest Song in the World! Little Steven is Steven Van Zandt, guitar player in Bruce Springstein’s E Street Band. It’s an honor to have played on “7 Nights to Rock” and to have the song even considered the Coolest Song of the Week let along the world. Please check out the website and vote for The Connection, who just got back from a European tour this past October!
