These last couple weeks have been gut wrenching and just when I thought it couldn’t get worse, news came in that Sharon had passed. To say we’re heartbroken would be an understatement. She was one of the best live performers one will ever see and seemingly just a tough, kind soul.
Sharon was kind enough to write a little foreword for our piece on Binky Griptite which was done as a favor that now seems even more priceless. I was honored to write an appreciation piece for The Guardian which you can read HERE. RIP Sharon. Thank you so much.

I was recently lucky enough to connect with legendary composer Galt Macdermot and was asked to write a short primer on his essential recordings (heads might find the list tepid but this is real broad, easy swath of his jams). In the end, that’s the beauty of Macdermot’s enormously effusive catalogue– there’s so much to celebrate. Take a look / listen to the story I did For Redbullmusicacademy HERE. Thank you Galt, huge honor.
