Performing at International Pop Overthrow Fest Sunday April 24th in Chicago (2022)

I hope to discover what IPO is all about, as I am intrigued by the selection of musicians, and how "pop" music can mean more than Top 40. It's a style, and a vibe, with traces of British pop and rock and roll, with a little punk thrown in, yet ...

Performing at International Pop Overthrow Fest Sunday April 24th in Chicago (2022)

I hope to discover what IPO is all about, as I am intrigued by the selection of musicians, and how “pop” music can mean more than Top 40.

I made thought bubbles and speech bubbles to make these characters ‘talk’ and ‘think’. Chicago blues musicians drummer Dean Haas and harp player Martin Lang are featured on this track,…
