A Whole Lotta Updates!

It's been a crazy first couple of weeks in July, and doesnt look like things are gonna be slowing down anytime soon. So, a couple of highlights about shows/projects that are gonna be popping up in the near future:


-THE RIOT ACT TAKES ON BROOKLYN  (Sat, July 18th. 9pm)

Been a minute since our last live show, so I'm absolutely psyched for The Riot Act to be bringing back to Brooklyn this saturday, alongside fellow Wes alum/Vocal-Producer-Hybrid Extraordinaire Novelty Daughter. Check out for more details on upcoming stuff with this project!


-THE ROOKS SUMMER TOUR (July 30 - August 10th)

This one's been in the works for a minute, so we're incredibly excited to announce our first INTERNATIONAL (that's right, Canada counts!) TOUR! We've got stops all through the Northeast, as well as a few dates across the border, so check for specific show details, because I would love to see you at any that you're able make! We've got a whole bunch of new tunes and surprises for you. Its gonna be a blast.  And stay tuned for a few more announcements coming your way on the Rooks front!


- TROT FOX WRAPS UP JULY @ PIANOS (July 28th, 11pm) 

Heading back to one of my favorite LES venues with future-soul-ish quartet, Trot Fox for a late night end of july party. There will be some new tunes, a bunch of fun covers, and plenty of odd time-signatures to confuse your usual dance moves. Check the event link here, and hope to see you there.



Jess Best is a terrifyingly good vocalist. She's also a monster of a songwriter. Working on her album this past year has been an absolute pleasure. The first single, "Now That I Got It," just dropped today, so you should probably go check that out as soon as is humanly possible. I just wrapped some last minute tracking for one last tune yesterday (you can peep a quick clip here), and now we're shifting gears towards putting together our live set. Stay tuned to for details on both the big release, as well as any upcoming shows!



Thats it for now. Hope y'all are enjoying the summer weather, and I'd love to see you at a show sometime soon!
