NEW VIDEO OF "YOU SAVED ME"
January 17, 2013
January 4, 2013
Hi, and Happy New Year 2013 to you. Make those resolutions, it's good to try new things and give ourselves goals. I include ones that are definitely reachable, and a few "dream goals" that inspire me to go beyond what I think I can accomplish. I've noticed that sometimes those "dream goals" happen years later, after I forgot I even made them!
The "hey, you never know" principle, I guess.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year
December 25, 2012
Merry Christmas to you & your family, and for those you hold close and care for. Also, have a Blessed 2013.

It's a day after the day after Thanksgiving, and I wanted to thank my fans, and let you know that I'm thankful for so many things, profound and ordinary, like:
(1) birds (they are soooo cool - they FLY and SING!!!)
(2) God & Jesus & Mary
(3) people, all kinds make life interesting
(4) family & friends
(7) shelter, transportation
(10) the ocean, the mountains, the cities, the country, the suburbs, the exurbs
+best to you+
I Live In New Jersey - Hurricane Sandy Update
November 2, 2012
I live in New Jersey, and we were hit very hard by hurricane Sanday. I'm in the northwestern part of the state, where there are lots of trees. Many went down in the storm, and power is out all over the place. 3 trees about 80 - 100 feet tall went down in my yard and hit a few cars, uprooted a small garage, and took out the neighbor's play house. Thank God no one got hit.
People are really edged out about gasoline, mainly for use to run their generators if they have one. Many people are sharing their generator's power - my neighbors Karl, Dianna and their son Chris ran 3 houses with their generator, including ours. This keeps the fridge on. I had bought a gas camp stove the day before the hurricane hit, so was able to cook outside on two burners. The temperature was at first o.k., now it is very cold at night (in the 30's).
So...the situation as of November 2 around here is this: some people have gotten their power back, and others have not (we got our power back yesterday). JCP&L is working round the clock, but the need is very great. People who are on generators need the gas to run them, and there are long lines at the stations. You see gas trucks with police escorts. People get more frazzled with every passing day.
Those with power are opening their homes to those without power, sharing their electric thru extension chords, sharing meals, making hot showers available, and opening sleeper sofas for people to be able to sleep in a warm place. Concurrently, the roads are tense and the stores are crowded. Conversations abound between strangers, kind of "what's your story?" kind of thing. I met a man who walked to town from 25 miles away to buy a bicycle so he could get places. He lives in a basement room alone and got sick of being hungry and looking at a candle by himself. He was more than happy to talk about his life, and the tent he and a few guys were pitching that night in the back of town by the town's septic system, as out of the cold as they could get. He believes God is has helped him in his life, but that this is only the beginning, and that more hardships like this one are on the way. I told him I'm glad he knows God, and he was glad I knew him too. Links.
Some friends of my son slept over last night, happy to be out of the cold. More are staying tonight. I'm cooking alot to feed whoever might be staying over. My home is open to neighbors and friends who need a place - and there are many. So there is alot to do.
We hear Staten Island stories, which seem the worst to us. Fast flood waters, people ripped out to sea. They got hit like hurricane Katrina. They are suffering greatly, and don't see help fast enough. This reminds me of Katrina, and so I ask everyone to pray that help get there soon. The problems and deaths are not all in yet - please pray for all those affected by this storm. Thank you.

Look for it!

Hi Fans, one and all!
Busy times. Trying lots of new things musically and taking some new paths along this winding road. Specifically:
- Presently compiling all the Rich Piszker/Lori Malvey songs into a CD (from our collection of iTunes 2 EPs, our singles, and some new material). The music will come out through CD Baby, so if there is some music "missing" from iTunes, it's because we are transitioning over through this new CD. Once it's out, it will be out for good. If you need any music and can't find it, please email me & I'll send it to you).
- Working with Mark Salamone on some songs for licensing. This is a new experience and the one song in particular, "My Heart Is Always Breaking" is sounding exceptional. Looking forward to the journey this little song takes...
- Writing more songs with different style elements. Enjoying every minute of it. Presently using an 88-key controller so back to mucho piano--love it.
I guess that's it, so one day at a time in order to keep it together...and keeping it together is a noble thing + + +
April 11, 2012
Happy Resurrection Day!
...to you & yours + + +
April 5, 2012
Working on some new songs, getting them ready for release in the near future.
Transitioning some songs over to CD Baby, so if you can't find what you're looking for, they'll be back on iTunes soon.
SPRING! EASTER! What a month... :)

NEWS FLASH: Just released a new single that will benefit a friend who just adopted a baby girl.

This song is my gift to them "Come Live In Our Home (the Adoption Song)". ALL DOWNLOAD SALES $ GOES TO THIS FAMILY - 100%. Here's the link:

New songs are being recorded and they are coming along well. But the ideas keep flowing and new tracks come my way...so lots happening.
In the process of re-distributing my music, so many business items need to be attended to in order to get the songs out through CD Baby. On that note, better get goin...:)
Thanks for stopping by, and have a good, good day. +God Bless YOU+

Well, it's off to the studio again...I must admit, recording music is a way of life for this particular artist, cause I really like to write & sing & record & put music out there. Anyway, I really like the new songs. One is about risk, the other is about adoption (for a friend), one is about "the big picture", and one is a fully produced version of a simple song on this site already. Sounds fun to me! All songs are being produced by the one producer who has ALWAYS believed in me - Rich Piszker, who has also co-written two of them. Rich (and my Cousin, his Wife, Carmel) I don't know what I'd do without your inspiration and help! THANK YOU!!! YOU BOTH BELIEVED IN THIS ARTIST WHEN NO ONE ELSE DID! I'M FOREVER GRATEFUL.
I'll keep you posted about the songs' progress and, as always, enjoy the music on this site.
Also, thanks to JANGO radio and all the positive comments from my new fans. I APPRECIATE EACH AND EVERYONE WHO HAS SUPPORTED THIS INDIE ARTIST. MY PRAYERS ARE FOR YOU ALL.
+love & peace & all that good stuff+

The only thing to say is I hope you all get your power back! NJ was hit, and hit hard AGAIN with the early snow storm, and we lost power for a few days...many are still out.
Happy All Saints Day!

I'll be playing "live" in a band format (drums, bass, guitar, vocals, keyboards) on Saturday, September 24th between 2:00-3:00 in the afternoon at"The Tierney Veliz Coming Home" Benefit at Lodestar Park in Fredon, NJ.

Tierney was recently in a car accident and the family needs to renovate the house to accommodate her current condition. The hospital will only discharge her when the home is where it needs to be, so the benefit is being held to raise money for this purpose.

See you there.

I just got out of the studio with Mark Salamone, where we mixed a new song by myself & Rich Piszker called "Once Again". It will be one of three new songs to be released in the fall. Great session, and really excited about these new songs. THEY SOUND GREAT - CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE THEM WITH YOU ALL!
Rest in Peace, Amy Winehouse

John 6: 30 - 35
30 So they said to him, "Then what sign do you do, that we may see, and believe you? What work do you perform?
31 Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, `He gave them bread from heaven to eat.'"
32 Jesus then said to them, "Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
33 For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven, and gives life to the world."
34 They said to him, "Lord, give us this bread always."
35 Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.

Happy Easter to you. May all the grace & peace of knowing Jesus Christ be yours.
