Back in Los Angeles 

I had a great time opening up for David Poe in New York City and Baltimore last week. In fact, I put a choir together both in NYC and Baltimore and am full of excitement like one has at the beginning of a long and beautiful journey. My journey has a choir singing. You can see photos of the Baltimore show on the PHOTOS page. Anyone take pictures in New York? (I saw you, I know you did!) Please share them! Be sure to check out David's new record and don't miss him when he comes through your town!
