The Whitewalls’ ‘Whiteout’ 2010 Year End to a Beginning…

From Piano’s, to the National Underground, to Arlene’s Grocery, to the Rockwood Music Hall and finally to the Rock Shop in just about a month, The Whitewalls’ debut was a sweet ending to 2010 with promise of what may come for the band in 2011.

Playing solo acoustic this year and with Rebecca Hart as The Tiny Ambivalents has also been quite fun and healthy for my musical growth. Just learning and digesting really good material (mainly others’), not only constantly helps me as a writer/performer, but also helped me and Rebecca, specifically, to solidify material together for the performance of the show Struck I was a part of (as musical director, sound design, and live musician) AND feed the ever-changing sound of our band RH & TSC (or whatever you may call us, Rebecca Hart & The Sexy Children).  The band just had a rockin’ “Winter Solstice” gig at Joe’s Pub as well to end the year. More Tiny Ambivalents’ shows are planned already for 2011, and we have some video from our Rockwood show to show you soon! Also, plenty more to come from the band and hopefully further explorations of the show Struck!

*Reminder: My debut solo EP is available for FREE download if you click here and The Whitewalls’ EP is available for FREE download if you click here

I’ve got my sites aimed high, and I am working overtime to deliver more, and better in 2011. I think with the solo EP, the new band(s), and a new perspective on both writing and playing, I have only cracked the surface of where I plan to go as a composer (musical and lyrical) and guitarist. I have been learning some new tricks,  so please stay tuned, and help spread the music ’round as there is a LOTT more to come!
