Welcome to Kooshmania!

  • “Clowns Will Be Arriving” in January!

    My fourth CD, Clowns Will Be Arriving, will be released by Summit Records on January 13, 2015.  And before that – in early December of this year – my song Christmas Day, My Favorite Day, which I wrote with lyricist Michael Andrew, will be released as a single.  This song is also on the CD, and features vocals by the incredible Napoleon Murphy Brock.  Please stay tuned for updates about the CD Release Party and other subsequent performances!
