The year 2014 is off to a great start. 2013 wrapped up with a performance on "The X-Factor", and the momentum carried over to the new year. In January, I had the pleasure of performing in the house band (under the direction of John Beasley" for the television special "Sports Illustrated 50 Years of Beautiful" celebrating 50 years of the Swimsuit Issue. Watch for a couple of trips to the mid-west as I travel to Wichita, KS in March for an Artist in Residency at Friends University. In April, I will be the guest artist for a week of workshops and concerts at Eau Claire Memorial High School in Eau Claire, WI.
