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.
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…
