New single release - Heartbeat

I'm happy to share with you the release of Heartbeat, the follow-on single to last summer’s hit Captain America and the 2nd and title track off my upcoming album.

Co-written with my Producer, Kevin McNoldy, Heartbeat takes a very different approach, yet continues the story line introduced with Captain America around the continuous 24-hour-a-day turmoil surrounding our political landscape and the multiple harassment and sexual misconduct stories and how there is never an opportunity to come up for air before another international “embarrassment" occurs.

Despite its negative viewpoint, the song does have a hopeful message, as sung in the bridge: “I’ve got to fight through the fear, things are not how they appear, I’ve got the truth on my side. You are not winning the war, ‘cause I can take this and more, and I will make this right again.” So, although each day has us dealing with more bad news, lies, manipulations, and distortions, there will always be hope, and love will always win.

You'll also hear how my alternative obsession has started to make it's way into my songwriting and production, which really, was just a matter of time. I do have to admit that I was a little worried about this song. It's probably the most open I've been about my political views and frankly I wasn't sure how people would accept the style or genre. I guess only time will really tell, but for now, I can say this is me, this is who I am, and get ready for more!

The 60th Annual Grammy Awards!

Captain America, a song I co-wrote with my producer Kevin McNoldy, was recognized by the Recording Academy of Arts and Sciences by being placed on the official 1st round Grammy Ballot in Song of the Year, Record of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance. This was the 5th year I’ve been placed on the official ballot (2nd time with Kevin as my co-writer), and an accomplishment that I do not take for granted.

The response from my peers during this year’s campaign was amazing. The feedback and comments from all over the world were overwhelming to say the least and we honestly felt we had a great shot at being nominated. Ultimately, when the results were announced we weren’t chosen to receive an official Grammy nomination. Although very disappointed, I’m thrilled to have been able to share this song and its message of empowerment, perseverance, love, and strength across the globe. To all my wonderful NARAS family, both old and new, I thank you for your continued support and love. Our congratulations goes out to all of the nominees. See you in NYC and Good Luck! Read More…
