I have moved temporarily next door and it’s trippy. Having only lived in 1 apartment in NYC, and a studio at that, I am now in a 1 bedroom, while they renovate my apartment. At first, I was not happy and could not imagine taking ALL my things out of my trusted and beloved home and setting up life in a new space… then I said, “Darn it, I will embrace it!” So I did and I am OK with it all now. To quote a lyric in a new song I wrote a few months back, “Change is a freedom, that’s a proven fact.” Onward & upward!

My Building in the News Today…New York Times
Here is part (my part) of the story from the #newyorktimes today. It is an important story. I have been sharing images and videos about this for the past month or so…over the years I have shared images from my windows. I have always felt so lucky to have my view. These days the deconstruction of 14 Gay is all too apparent, and unsavory, both visually and sonically. The sound of a saw cutting into brick, is not my favorite sound, in fact, quite horrible & relentless. I have seen and heard both sides and I know these buildings have been in disarray for years. I have done what I could to keep up my own building – luckily it is in the best shape of all of them. #CelesteMartin did her own renovation years ago, uncovering the brick and replacing the sheetrock inside. Her plans were to fix the others, but sadly, she never got around to it. And it too will be modernized and renovated soon. I will keep you posted.
I am glad to be a part of this story. It is my home and it is where, for the most part, I have written my songs, all these years. Where I began my career.
PIVOTAL is releasing next year, and it is a reflection of my times in my studio, prior to, during COVID, and afterward. I believe it is my best work yet. More to follow…
