Thank you Debi Bodett for a Great Memory – Halibut Cove, Alaska

Thanks to friends and family in Homer, Alaska, I had a great evening performing across the bay in Halibut Cove. The kind and talented Debi Bodett surprised me by creating and posting on YouTube, a beautiful video memory of the event. Amazing food, an appreciative audience and stunning natural beauty made for an evening I will never forget! Thank you Debi and everyone at the Saltry Restaurant.

Release of “All These Things” Official Video

Release of “All These Things” Official Video

Hi everyone! I just released the OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO for my original song “All These Things,” a song about the homesickness I experienced my first year attending a university and the inability I had to share the beauty that surrounded me with the ones I loved. The video was a blast to make; we were able to go to a lot of cool locations around San Diego county and throughout California during production, and I’m beyond excited to share the finished work with you. Let me know what you think.  I would really appreciate it if you could share it if you like what you see/hear! If you want to hear this recording and more, you can find my album, “Forget the Dark” on all major distribution and streaming outlets (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.) Thank you so much!

In Loving Memory of Eva Saulitis

In Loving Memory of Eva Saulitis

In loving memory of my Aunt, Eva Saulitis, here is an original piano composition I have titled: “Transience.”

After a long and valiant battle with metastatic breast cancer during which she eloquently shared her intimate journey through CaringBridge, and a personal blog, Eva left her body with grace and dignity today, leaving the world enriched with her writings, her love and caring for the environment and all her fellow human beings.

My father commented that:  “[this piece] feels like it takes us through the struggle, the battle, the peace, the wisdom about what matters in life and the tranquil moments that appear from time-to-time as one lives and dies with metastatic breast cancer”

Find out more about the legacy that Eva left us, this remarkable writer, poet, scientist, and most of all . . . human being at: Eva Saulitis Blog

I hope you all will do everything within your power to support finding a cure for cancer. We have lost so many wonderful contributing beings to this terrible disease.

Rest in peace Aunt Eva, you are loved by so many and will be greatly missed by all you have touched.

New Album Pre-Orders Now Available

HELLO EVERYONE! I have some INSANELY incredible news to share with you. My first self produced full length album, “Forget the Dark” is complete and is available for PRE-ORDER! It has been such a long journey to get to this point…countless hours and so much hard work and dedication went into the production of it. I’d like to personally thank all of my family and friends for being there through it all and doing everything they could to guide me through the process, and I’d like to personally thank my dad, who not only helped with the preproduction/recording, but contributed immensely with designing the artwork. He consistently pulled all-nighters to meet the deadlines that this release required, and this album is his as much as it is mine. Of course, I couldn’t have done it without all of my supporters, and for that I am extremely grateful. If you pre-order the digital album from my BandCamp webpage, you will instantly receive a download of my new track, “Mine”, and will later be notified/sent a download link when the full album is out on December 1st:
