2024 yearly update!

Feb 1 2024

Last year will be tough to beat, but I'm hoping for the best!  My song "She's Not You" was a Grand Prize winner in The John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and my song "Falling" (co-written with Dave Tough) was the theme song for the movie "Take Me To Banue".  (The same song was in the Seth Rogen movie "Observe and Report", but it's featured much more prominently in this film.)   My band "Top Tier" had our biggest year yet in 2023.  We traveled pretty extensively and played in some states we hadn't performed in previously.  I saw and enjoyed parts of the country and cool towns that I hadn't experienced before.  Plus I did some traveling in Central America which was absolutely amazing and life changing.

The gig calendar is already quite full for the year and I continue to write a variety of musical styles for TV/film placements (and anywhere else they get used).  Thanks to all the publishers and music libraries that place my music and all the clients that book my band!   

Cheers to you all for a great 2024! - JD
