Driving – Live Performance at Songwriter’s Stage

Last month, I had the honor of performing with 15 other fantastic songwriters at a songwriters showcase & competition at the Downtown Credo Cafe in Orlando, FL. All 16 songwriters got to play 2 songs each, and then three performers are chosen to move on to the final round.

Somehow, I ended up moving on to the final round, and then winning the competition, which was a super humbling experience. I’m still a bit awestruck by the whole night; if it was a competition on being awkward and uncomfortable, it would have made much more sense.

My good friend Angelo Valentine, who is a fantastic photographer and videographer, graciously captured video from that night. This song is called Driving, and the full band version can be listened to on my BandCamp page.

If you get the chance, you should definitely make it out to the Songwriter’s Stage at Downtown Credo Cafe. It occurs the first Monday of every month, everyone is dead silent for all the performances, and the Cafe is a non-profit, donations only coffee (and beer) shop!
