2018: That’s a wrap (up)

I thought I’d take a moment to recount some really significant moments of 2018, and what I think I learned from them. ..Or not! Hey, it’s all relative, right? […]

2017: A Year in Review

Here we are, in the first few days of 2018….

Looking back, 2017 was an amazing year on so many levels. I thought I’d take this opportunity to reflect on everything that’s happened here in NAIL’s world and beyond. I can scarcely believe the sheer variety of styles & contexts in which I get to […]

Deke – Part 2

[AFG_gallery id=’2′]

8 In 1 (and a return to my multi-keyboard roots)

As the saying goes, “Be careful what you wish for”. I’ve tried to take that philosophy to heart, and to focus my heart & mind on where I want to be and what I’d like to be doing, in the best possible scenario. If the month of June is any indication, then I’d have […]

Tales from the Back Catalog: “Newburgh: An Urban Romance”

For You: Solo House Concerts by Me. :)

So here we are: 2010. It’s been a wacky ride, especially the last few weeks! I’ve been so busy with gigs now (thanks heavens!) that I can’t see straight. My “Year end wrap up” post never actually materialized, but at some point I will touch on the things that started last year and are starting […]
