wrapping up...

Merry Christmas!!!  Yeah, I know, I’m a little late.  LOL!  Here am I, inching ever closer to the end of yet another year and I’ll be honest; I’m not sure how that happened.  I was surprised by Thanksgiving, shocked that Christmas ran in to me violently, and now, with not so quiet resolve I prepare for 2017. 

It’s been a whirlwind of a year!  It’s been exciting to spend much of the year with you at various venues and private homes for every type of celebration this year!  You are still my favorite part of this “gig”!! 

This year I was honored this year to be a part of 2 very special compilation discs with the Christian side of my label – Creative Soul Records.   “Hope and Healing” was created to speak to those struggling with loss and challenges and specifically for those at the amazing St. Jude Hospital.  The second made it here a bit late, but “Timeless Christmas” is just that!  This is one of those Cd’s that I’ll be spinning every Christmas for years to come.   (I do have a limited amount of each of these projects if you missed out and would love a copy – just drop me a line or find me at a show.)
2017 is the year I am hoping to get a full Christmas CD done and start seriously writing again!  It’s been WAY too long and I have so many stories in me to tell. 

Most of all, I want to say THANK YOU to each and every one of you for your love and support over the past year.  You are the reason I get to do what I love to do and I love you all!!! 
Wrapping up the year will be New Year’s Eve at The Cultured Pearl at Rehoboth Beach, DE – 30 & 31 - 7pm.  Drop by and celebrate the start of a brand new year and a clean slate with me!!  Even winter is better at the beach.  ;)  


HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NEW Christmas Singles



Merry Chirstmas!!!!   

I am going nonstop this holiday season, (as I’m sure are you) BUT I wanted to make sure to let you know about the BRAND NEW Christmas tunes.  You’ve asked for years and FINALLY we were able to get something done for you.  This is the first step in a full project for you in the coming year.  You’ll find Christmas in the Air – a remake of a fun Carole King tune and Some Children See Him – one of my all-time favorite Christmas tunes.  I hope you love them as much as I do.

 These tunes are part of a compilation disc so make sure you check out all the amazing artists bringing you their favorite Christmas tunes here:  https://soundcloud.com/we-are-creative-soul/sets/timeless-christmas

KG drop by & new video

Good morning, afternoon, or evening - wherever you may be! I have been BUSY and don't check in as often as I should, but I wanted to stop by to say HI and say thank you for keeping me so busy!  We just came off of a wonderful weekend in Philadelphia at Paris Bistro Jazz Cafe - recently named as one of the top 50 jazz rooms in the U.S. - and rightly so.  We LOVE this room and can't wait to be back!   Check out the KGJazz Youtube channel for some video from this weekend.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWsNQPXUlmvPqAhbgQJToQw This weekend will find me soaking in some of my favorite wineries, so join me SOMEwhere for a sip of something fabulous AND don't forget to make plans for the Interstate Wine Festival June 18 & Frederick Wine Festival Aug 6.  I'll have "my guys" out, so you never know what's going to happen.  ;) Blessings and cheers my friends.  See you soonest!
