Recent Releases

Imperfect Disguise

What happens when your body is in one place, but your brain is in a way different place? “Imperfect Disguise” from The Rockmores will be available in all streaming platforms and Bandcamp on 12/5/23.


Collective action is only possible when we see and experience commonality and cohesion. “Fever” is about deploying empathy to get past the frustration we have with one another, egged on by those in power in order to keep us apart, distracted by pointless, bitter in-fighting. It’s available on 11/7 in all streaming platforms & Bandcamp.

Sympathy’s Soul

What good is compassion if you don’t act on it? This is the new single from my other long-running musical project, The Rockmores. “Sympathy’s Soul” is now available in all streaming platforms and Bandcamp.

Blind Spot

A switch flips and you do something unexpected. Before you know it, you’re on a journey of self-reflection. On a winding road of personal growth, confronting past versions of yourself. Searching for something that stays just out of reach. It’s available on 9/19 in all streaming platforms & Bandcamp.


How do we know what’s real anymore? When we’re surrounded by things such as AI, chatbots, and deepfakes – it’s disorienting. That’s on purpose, of course. It makes urgent the trivial and unimportant to keep our attention focused away from the systems of power and oppression. It’s available on 5/17 in all streaming platforms & Bandcamp.

Close Your Eyes (Gamma Knife Brain Surgery)

What do we choose to reveal? What do we hold back because of fear? “Close Your Eyes” features some of the Boston area’s best musicians, including Andrew Stern on guitar, Dave Brophy on drums, Joe McMahon on bass, and a special guest appearance by Jessye DeSilva on the Wurlitzer. It’s available in all streaming platforms & Bandcamp.

Songwriter Showcase Series: A Residency Hosted by Michael Boezi

I am hosting a residency at The Square Root in Roslindale. Local songwriters present their songs in a stripped-down, low-key format to focus on good songcraft and strong community – bringing people together in an intimate setting to break through boundaries and gain an understanding of one another. We put on 11 shows in 2022, and plan to keep it going in 2023.

Ethical Marketing Is Not an Oxymoron

Aggressive marketing tactics might have been effective in the past, but today’s consumers are more savvy. They see right through the lies, deception, and whitewashing. Ethical marketing is the only way to set yourself apart – to treat your customers with respect.

How Advertising Ruined the Internet

The promise of the Internet has been ruined by advertising. There is no article you can read, video you can view, or social feed you can scroll through without being interrupted by some advertiser’s desperate attempt to steal your attention. Every time I experience this, I feel like I’ve been Rickrolled.
