I made it back safely from the Aqua Jazz Festival in Sochi and am happy to be home after a summer of festival traveling. It was my first trip to Russia, and I must say that I hope I go back soon. Sochi is located right on the black sea, and is incredibly picturesque. Now that I'm home, I have a bunch of shows lined up for august in the New York City area, and have just updated my gig calendar. Hopefully I'll see some of you at some of my gigs!
In other news, I just finished an amazing book written by a friend of mine and I'd encourage you all to read it! It's called Me, Earl and the Dying Girl written by the witty Jesse Andrews. The book explains a lot of about where I'm from and is a great inside look into the greatness and some of the problems that exist within the Pittsburgh Public School education system. Here is a link to the book.
