The Weight of Gold
A New HBO Documentary
I'm really excited and proud to have been a part of the music team for the amazing documentary 'The Weight of Gold'. It tells the story of Olympic athletes and the struggles they face during and post career. Their bouts with depression, their struggle with the pressure and addiction, and for a few, eventual suicide. It's an incredible story and I am so glad I got to be a part of it. You can watch it now streaming on HBO on demand and the HBO family of apps.
Here's the Deal
Podcast Interview with Kevin Kelly
The other day I had the wonderful opportunity of sitting down and talking with director, writer, editor, you name it, he does, the awesome Kevin Kelly Ulrich for his new podcast, 'Here's the Deal'. I had the esteemed pleasure of working with Kevin on a short film called 'Jerry Nova's Love Extravaganza', where we got to record some live choir (which was a ton of fun). Not only did I get to be featured in this episode, but I also got to debut the brand new theme song that I wrote for it (and sang on). You can check out my episode below, and be sure to like and subscribe to the podcast on Youtube, Apple podcasts, or wherever you do your podcast listening!

A calming music video shot by Stephen Serio
So I'm really fortunate to have some really talented family members. My mom's cousin (so I think that makes him my second cousin) Stephen Serio is an amazing photographer. I got an email from him a few months ago saying he took this interesting video of Lake Michigan, and he set it to one of the tracks from my album. He wanted to know if it was ok for him to use it and post it, so naturally I was super flattered and said of course! It's given me some other ideas that are now floating around in my head, so stay tuned for some interesting announcements, and enjoy the video!
