BIG LOVE & THANKS to Jodi Marr & AbFab Artists for another incredible writing trip in Nashville. I got to work with some amazingly talented artists and have made some wonderful new friends!!! Even picked up a drumming gig via the Olsen Brothers from Olympia, Washington. Looking forward to the next trip! #Family #AbFabArtists #hugasongwriter

I wish you all a very Happy St. Patty’s day! Here’s a video (below) of an absolute beaut written by The Three Jacks frontman, Henke Milne & performed by the Three Jacks, your friendly neighborhood Irish Celtic rock band from South Florida. The Three Jacks feat. Jack Shawde (guitar), Jack Stamates (fiddle), Debbie Duke (bass) & yours truly on the drums (they kick in around 8:05 mark, lol).
Been trying get all these new songs sorted out for the new album & more… It’s the best kind of overwhelm! Teaming with my long-time friend and musical partner, Jack Shawde for both pre-production of the new album, and songwriting demos for pitch. My band (Jack Shawde (guitars), Debbie Duke (bass), Bob Taylor (keyboards) John Yarling (drums) are all on-board to record later this fall. Things are really getting exciting!

This is how we greet new friends & fellow songwriters here in South Florida! There is a whole lotta talent in this frame.
Very proud to announce the official video release of “Sobering Days” from the album Beautiful Ways. This beautiful video was created by Rose Gargiulo. Enjoy!
