It has been an amazing journey, this 30th year of disappear fear. I don't really have the luxury of looking back yet cause so much is going on and about to happen. Next week we will go to Poland and I will perform in Sopot (part of my ancestral homeland)-Sept 4 at (Anatewka) Bagazwonia Zynera In Sopot. Then back to Hamburg for the Nudem Durak Concert. Currently, my musical Small House No Secrets (musical director- Tony Correlli, Directed by Miriam Bas starring Ellen Cherry as Amanda among other greats) is being developed to be performed as part of the Page to Stage Series (one full scene) presented by and at the Kennedy Center on Labor Day. Another exciting project is my song- The Princess and the Honey Bee is going to be a beautifully illustrated story book. I am collaborating with the award winning artist -Thomas Kelley. We return to America 9/11 and I have scheduled studio time to record some of my unrecorded Hebrew prayers and we will release a CD with new songs and familiar ones. I feel with the rise and threat of anti-Semitism and other racist remarks it is my honor and duty to give a voice to the feelings of my heart and soul, dare it be said -like an out of the closet Jew. We will release this in November 1, 2018. Also, Terry is developing a 30 song compilation CD Package that will also release this fall commemorating this 30th year anniversary of disappear fear. I'm really looking forward to playing live with Chris Sellman and Howard Markman at the PFLAG Concert in Virginia. I love playing with my disappear fear band. I am also excited about coming home to Baltimore and performing on Sunday Oct 14 for the Ezra Uganda Assistance Fund a small but thriving Jewish Community in Eastern Uganda. On the Merch side- we are creating more styles to the Love Out Loud T shirt with V-Necks and some other cool surprises. Be well, hydrate and keep moving!
