One of my eBook cover designs for comedian Colin Mochrie. This one wasn’t selected as the final but I think it’s my favorite of the bunch.
River Song Website
The River Song Quintet website is live! Check it out at www.riversongquintet.com. We’re going on another west coast tour this month… I’ll put up the schedule in a separate post. Stay tuned.
Here is a nice blog post about the CalArts Large Ensemble concert I am co-directing with Lauren Baba this Saturday. Thanks to Paul Fraser for writing it up!
The River Song west coast tour was a huge success! I can’t wait to do it again. Here’s a video of us performing at the Camellia Lounge in Portland, OR… music by guitarist Greg Uhlmann and words by singer Alina Roitstein. Stay tuned for more from this band, including audio/video from our show at the Blue Whale in LA and a fancy schmancy website.
