“Eklektikos” on KUT Radio

October 31, 2011

I had the opportunity to speak on John Aielli’s show, “Eklektikos“, produced by KUT radio in Austin, October 24th!   He played ‘Jesu Meine Freud Und Lust’ from the new Buxtehude album and ‘Absalom’ from Ryland Angel (EMI).”  It was great to be back in Austin, and I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with John about my music.

You can purchase Absalom from or itunesBuxtehude is available on itunes.


“Beloved One” is currently #22 in Amazon Jazz Vocal category

Can you believe it!!  22 is my new favorite number, although I wouldn’t mind it changing!!

Interestingly enough, if you look at the chart there are groups like Manhattan Transfer and Amy Winehouse, very cool?!  I have never been in a Jazz vocal chart before but this totally rocks!

Getting great facebook feedback and buzz on the album.

Back in the summer of 2010, while in St. David’s, I met a wonderful artist called Anna Bland.  I commissioned her to paint me a couple of dragons.  Here is the third one that she did.  Awesome!!!  Thanks, Anna!
