Today, after months of work and a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, my new album E.L.S. is out on Nat Geo Music. Head on over to my new Facebook store to buy special merch items. You can also buy E.L.S. HERE. You can download the title track by clicking HERE, and listen to more cuts from the album in my performance on WNYC’s Soundcheck HERE.
The album was a collaborative effort with a number of my friends, including Mario C of the Beastie Boys, David Hurwitz, and Jason Lader (Julian Casablancas, Jenny Lewis), as well as special guests Joey Altruda and Money Mark (John Butler Trio). And my album’s title refers to Electric Latin Soul, a combination of rock, soul, boogaloo, and number of other styles that have personally inspired me over the years. You can watch me explain the concept HERE
And if you’re in New York next week, be sure to come out to my show at Rockwood Music Hall. I’m playing on Stage 2 at 9:00 p.m. Buy tickets HERE
