Smash Mouth in Progressive Insurance Commercial

Happy new year 🙂

A few months ago we got the opportunity to shoot a commercial with Progressive Insurance and Flo (she’s a sweetheart btw).
There really isn’t much more to say about that other than that it was blast and the commercial is hilarious! 😛

Enjoy…and we’ll see you soon New Zealand!

Thriving Musician Podcast

Had a great time chatting with Mr. Spenser Liszt last week about what it takes to be a successful artist (as far as the business side is concerned) on his podcast “Thriving Musician Podcast“.

I feel like this is a topic many INCREDIBLE artists miss out on.

I strongly suggest listening to his podcast in general, so much to learn about the business of being an artist and what it takes to make it a full time career.
I hope you enjoy my episode 🙂
You can also find this podcast on all the usual outlets (Apple, Spotify etc.).

Hit me up any time through Insta, Twitter etc…you know the drill.
Good luck to all the artists out there and thanks again to Amanda Metcalfe for this great picture! 🙂

Hey now, you’re an All Star….

It’s been a minute since I’ve shared the stages with my “Smash Mouth” brothers, but it’s finally that time again 
I’m happy to say I will be playing with them again for the rest of the year and hopefully more years to come. 
They’re such a fun band to play with and the fans are AWESOME! 🙂

I’m gonna miss my Enrique Iglesias family and the fans, but I’m sure our paths will cross again sooner rather than later.
In the mean time, y’all know you can always reach me on the social media platforms, Instagram being my current favorite for that 🙂

For now, adios and let’s go be All Stars!

And now on Soundbetter.com as well :)
