The Big C Starts Production!

It’s true, The Big C is back in production already, filming in Stamford, CT is officially underway. And the producers and I are already working on some fun musical treats for Season 3! The first episode is due to air on April 8 on Showtime. If you don’t have Showtime, or haven’t seen the first...
Pick Of The Week: Craig Finn

Pick Of The Week: Craig Finn

I still remember distinctly the first time I saw Craig Finn perform, with his band Lifter Puller, although many lesser shows have blurred in my memory since then.
