This is the first comprehensive performance of the debut album “Cry A Little” that was recorded in 2020 and released in 2021. Keys and vocals drive the show with strong support from an incredible rhythm section. The themes cover everything from the psychology of waiting for what seems like the impossible in “Waiter Waiter Elevator” to dealing with components of the #metoo movement in “Jackie” and hoping for brighter days in “Outta My Shoes”. This compilation of original work will have you dancing and dreaming right along.
