Over the last few months I've had the opportunity to work with U-Nam on his latest album, "C'est Le Funk." On the various tracks I can be heard on sax, flute and vocals. It's a great mix of original music from U-Nam and some covers. It officially releases September 15, but you can listen and get the digital version now on Amazon. Check it out.

I am really excited to announce the release of my brand new single, an instrumental cover of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep." I had a lot of fun working on the new single, especially since it's been some time since I've released something on my own (this past year, I've been working with U-Nam as a part of the smooth jazz group Nivo Deux). You can download the song at CDBaby, iTunes and Amazon.
