Hello!

Hi everyone,

So I decided to write a blog - I'm new to the blogosphere so please bear with me. I want to thank you all for visiting my page and of course everyone who has become a fan through my Facebook and Reverb Nation pages. I sincerely appreciate everything!!

Currently, I am working on my Italian language CD which should be available by Thanksgiving. I'm so excited for this project because everyone that knows me is aware of my addiction to all things Italian. This CD has an entirely different feel then Songbook, which features the music of the Al Vega Trio and some great standards. It is more of an expression of who I truly am and what I am passionate about. Of course I will always love the standards, but like so many of us, I am proud of my background and heritage. It will also give me a chance to add a dramatic flair to my music. It is a compilation of Italian music, both old and new, pop and jazz, swing and traditional, and will feature Italian versions of several songs that were big hits in the U.S. and the U.K.

My next gig is Saturday, September 24. I am really psyched to do this one - my very good friend Kim Burditt is organizing a suicide prevention walk around Lake Quannapowitt in Wakefield, MA. It's shaping up to be a big success with a lot of walkers and supporters. The organization, called "Out of the Darkness" American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, is such a valuable resource for those in need or who have been touched in any way by a suicide.  This walk will also bring awareness to the suffering so many returning veterans face. I am so honored to be performing at this event.

Well that's about it for now...Happy Monday everyone!! Ciao!!!
