This past Wednesday August 15th was the launch of a new online network called MUBUTV that I am the Co-founder on. The MUBUTV Insider Video Series, features interviews with some of today’s leading music industry professionals in the areas of A&R, music supervision, legal affairs, marketing & branding, publicity and record production among others.  We worked very hard on the creation and development of this first show and I am very proud with how it came out. 

I've attached the official press release below for you to check out. And I also went ahead and included the MUBUTV promo clip for the show as well as the first episode with veteran music supervisor John Houlihan. This was truly a labor of love and one that I hope that you will really enjoy. Much love & blessings...

Performing with Frankie J!

Boy it's been a while since my last post and I feel ashamed of myself. I've kept promising more consistent posting on my blog but have found it harder to do than I thought it would. I guess I'm going to have to really force myself to dig in and write. With that being said, here we go. Well this past Monday August 13th, I had the distinct pleasure to perform with Universal Music Artist Frankie J. I have to say I was quite surprised by what a great and humble person he turned out to be. He definitely has his feet on the ground and has the right idea about everything. He is a HUGE talent and what a great singer, WOW!

We ended up doing three TV show tapings for him. One was for the morning show here in LA for Univision called 'Primera Edicion' then shortly after we did 'Lanzate' and then finally later that evening we were in Burbank for the TV taping of a crazy ass show called 'Estudio 2'. I wish Frankie J. nothing but massive success. He's on tour now with J. Lo and Enrique Iglesias. You should go check him out. Below is a shot with me and Frankie J. before we did the show on the set of 'Primera Edicion'. Yeah I know it's a little blurry.
