Me, Oskar and Joel had a wonderful time in NYC, playing at CMJ (at Googies at The Living Room), playing at the other legendary venues Pianos, Kenny's Cataways and The Way Station in Brooklyn and meeting up with new and old friends as well as checking out other cool music acts around the city.

We got to see the great Robert Ellis w/band perform twice at The Living Room. Two of the best live shows I've ever seen, so Thank you Robert! You have a killer band! We also got to see Thomas Wynn & The Believers from Orlando, Florida. They have the coolest songs and sweetest harmonies and Thomas even showed up for our show at Kenny's Castaways, good times!

A big thank you to Robert Singerman for helping us out! Thank you Alex Forbes for lending me your guitar, so sweet! Thank you also for the songwriting session!! Thank you Ashley Fayth, Duncan Townsend and Tiffany Shea for the music and for hanging out with us! Thank you Evan D.Williams for joining us on stage, playing the banjo, taking pictures and opening for us at Kenny's. We are grateful. It was also cool hanging out with our drummer friend Oskar Häggdahl from Molpe, what a guy!

Thank you also to Ariel Hyatt at Cyber Pr for the BBQ CMJ WRAP PARTY in Brooklyn, so much fun! I wish we could have stayed longer! Ariel's got a kick ass Pac-Man Arcade Game in her house, how cool is that! :-)

Here's a couple of pictures of me networking in the Big Apple...
