Well… at long last, election day is just around the corner. I’m sure you’ve read about the concern for mail in voting. My family and I will indeed be voting by mail but we will not be mailing in our ballots. Instead, to make sure each and every vote is counted we will be dropping off our mail-in ballots in person.
IMPORTANT TO KNOW
You do not need to MAIL in your MAIL-IN ballot!
All states allow for in-person drop off at the County Clerk or Registrar, or your local Board of Election.
Just do an online search for your county and find where to drop if off.
PLEASE PASS THIS ON
I am excited to announce that I have a new smooth jazz single coming soon. The song is called “Chill” and it features a sax solo by the legendary Gerald Albright! What a cool dude. I will be posting more about it over the next little while.
In the meantime, Here are a few tunes:
And… If you’re in the mood for some easy listening and just want to unplug for a few hours, check out the replay of my Jazznet 247 radio show where I play some of my favorites songs and artists.
I’ll be releasing a new single entitled “Stop Look Listen”. Look out for it to drop in the next week or so. It’s a song that has always resonated for me. It was made famous by the Stylistics whom I had the pleasure of recently performing with in Memphis. A great bunch of guys.
I am working hard in the studio these days. I’ve always loved the studio and have always cherished it as a place where (for me) everything makes sense. I find social media and the news hard to digest and understand these days, and I think we all occasionally need a break from the madness. I hope some romantic music will make you feel as good as it makes me feel when I’m creating it..
I picked “Stop, Look, Listen (to your heart)” to record because it is a song that I find particularly pertinent today. I believe that its increasingly important for each of us to look in the mirror and search long and hard about our beliefs and update them if needed…… and change them…… if somewhere along the line they got headed in the wrong direction. We all have that power.
When we look in that mirror, I believe we should have an eye towards what’s good for ALL PEOPLE. Not just ourselves, or the group we are associated with. At the end of the day, we are all in this together. Its not an easy task but one that worthy of our attempt.
On another note I’d like to urge my fans and friends to please vote in these mid terms elections and all elections from here on out. We need you. Even if you have never voted before, please register and vote now. You may not believe in the system… you may not like the options available…. believe me I completely understand. But if we do nothing and wait for the perfect option, the perfect answer, we give up our chance to have our say and head things in the direction we feel is right. Every vote is going to count from here on out. So please, I urge you to use your voice.
Did you know you can set it up so you can vote by mail? You don’t have to take time off work to vote.
Remember the things that mean the most to you and vote your conscience.
I don’t know about you, but I see so many people struggling these days… Times are difficult for everyone but I still believe in Miracles. Here’s a song I wrote entitled “Miracles”. Its message is “BE THE CHANGE”
And (as I always try and end with love) here is my song “Without You”. After all is said and done, love is the most powerful tool we have at our disposal.
