How many songs can I actually play?

 
Time and time again, folks ask how many songs I know how to play. This can be a tough answer to pinpoint, because how does one define knowing a song? Is it just being able to sing it? Or play it on guitar? Or recognize it if it's on the radio? Folks who have heard me play have told me I know "hundreds, even thousands of songs." I have always thrown out the number 600. I bet I can play for you 600 songs off the top of my head. As of today, I have figured out that I can play 484 different cover songs. Now that doesn't include originals, Irish traditionals or children's songs. With all this in mind, I have made a goal to get my number up to 1000. At least before my brain explodes. Stay tuned, I'll keep you posted...
 

New recordings coming soon...

 
I'm excited to inform you I will be a part of TWO new releases this year. First off, my NYC rock band, The Jupiter Deluxe, has finished recording and mixing our first full length record! We are in the final stages of mastering and artwork, and should have a final product ready by fall. Our plans are to release it on full blown vinyl! This record features a couple originals of my own, which I'm extremely proud to finally be releasing to the public. Head on over to www.thejupiterdeluxe.com for more info. Second, the Hometown Sweethearts are hard at work on our first original record! We currently have 11 tunes in various stages of completeness. We've already begun the recording process and expect to finish up in April. Head on over to www.hometownsweethearts.com for more about that.
