I am Irish and I live in Brooklyn, New York. I write, sing, wander around, scribbling out loud and taking pictures.

See my contact page for various online outlets.

My original music is on Bandcamp. My jazz stuff is on Soundcloud.

For the past couple of years I have been shaping my chops on Sundays with a fine set of gentlemen of exquisite pedigree in a private home on Fifth avenue in Manhattan. This regular jam session at the home of the legendary society bandleader Charles McCarty (94 years strong and still singing) has lured me back into singing jazz, and I am really excited about what we’ve been doing. Ross and I have been recording these sessions and others recorded live at Wombat Recording and those are the ones up on Soundcloud.

Our personnel includes:

Charles McCarty, bandleader and vocals                                Jack Gale, trombone

Ephie Resnick, piano                                                               David Gale, trumpet

Ross Bonadonna, guitar                                                          Hurricane Jim, trombone

Bobby Shankin, drums                                                             Bob Dietrich,  relief piano

… and various guests…
