2016 started strong, folks! 7 US runs already, 2 Canada runs, 2 international runs (Egypt, Austria). I just got back from Switzerland yesterday and starting on Thursday, I head to Asia (Philippines, Thailand, Singapore). Then Hawaii is on the books, 2 shows on the East Coast, and New Zealand by the end of August… Then at least 3 more US runs by November are already announced! I also have a few very exciting shows in LA with both old and new faces, as well as some solid studio work where I hope to put my mando, oud, bass and other ukuleles to good use.
I wanna thank Godlyke and Carr for recently sending me amazing gear, which I’m still wrapping my head (and fingers) around. Also thanking
The first half of this year was incredible. 5 US tours under the 2015 belt, and an amazing run in June that took me to Switzerland, England, Israel, Belgium, France, Spain, and last week Chile… I can’t believe I got to play at the Royal Albert Hall for the second time in my career! (picture above). But the second half of the year is here already and I’m very excited to be touring some of my favorite places in the world such as Australia, Asia and South Africa again. I also hope to see you during the 3 US runs we have by October!

Hey guys! So far this year has taken me touring all over the USA and Europe; a highlight was rehearsing with the BBC Orchestra for an upcoming performance with Engelbert Humperdinck at the London Palladium. His duet album, “Engelbert Calling“, on which I did some recording and vocal producing work is also out now.
Lulu Gainsbourg‘s album is about to come out. It features exciting duets such as M, and Anne Hathaway! It is an honor to have recorded on all the tracks. The Single is available now here: http://lulugainsbourg.artiste.universalmusic.fr More about this soon.

Hello all, it’s a busy end of the year for me! I got to record guitar on the upcoming Venezuelan movie “Papita Maní Tostón”, which is making a lot of noise in the Spanish speaking market. With Engelbert we ended a very successful show in Nashville 2 days ago, tying up a great tour throughout the midwest. And I am off to London next week to record Lulu Gainsbourg’s second album.
His first album was an homage to his father, Serge Gainsbourg, which featured wonderful duets with people such as Iggy Pop, Scarlett Johansson and Vanessa Paradis. This will be his debut original album and I am delighted to bring my expertise for all guitars, along with an amazing rhythm section made in UK.
After this I will be going straight to South
