Collaborations

Ballet Mississippi                             ballet pic jpg

A few years ago, David Keary and I had a conversation at Hal & Mal’s about our Irish made acoustic guitars and the possibility of working together. The artistic director of Ballet Mississippi saw his vision through and the result was Let the Music Dance a live performance at Duling Hall Feb 6, 2016. See footage from the evening on the Photos/Videos page.

 

 

Powdercoat

Kristin Mooney and Claire Holley began singing together a few years ago when a mutual friend in Los Angeles  brought them together to sing in a band of female voices. The two had an immediate vocal chemistry and soon began writing together. Their self-titled EP produced by Greg Herzenach came out last fall, and was selected winner of the 2014 MIAL (Mississippi Institute of Arts & Letters) Awards for Popular Music Compostion (Click here to listen)
