NEW Music to share!
Check out my new single, Lead Me Home.

Spread the love, y'all. (Copyright Furry Poodoo Music/Firehorse Records 2020)
I also did a podcast interview with Headliner Radio a few months ago with old friend Will Hawkins, in which I talk about being a major-label rocker in the 90s, having actors as parents and becoming an professional actor in my 40s, art and activism, and a lot more. Oh and I play a couple new songs. Click the link to hear it on Spotify. (Oh - do yourself a favor and skip min 49-62 - for some reason they kept in a loong technical snafu ; ) Recorded May 8, 2020.
Black Lives MAtter!
Systemic racism. Militarized policing. The desperate need for accountability.

I remember when I traveled to Ferguson, MO in the fall of 2014 with Reverend Billy & The Stop Shopping Choir, after Michael Brown's murder, to support the local activists there, and raise money for the burgeoning Black Lives Matter movement. Out on the street in front of the Ferguson PD, surrounded by National Guard troops, among the many protesters, was a retired white police captain from Philadelphia, dressed in his old uniform, holding a sign that read 'End Open Season On Black Men'. The more things change...
THIS TOO SHALL PASS
Double-vaxxed and it feels so good!! Looking forward to seeing people in the flesh, performing live, supporting local artists. xo
