Daniel McFeeley's "Out of the Blue" songwriter showcase.  I’ll be performing with Daniel and two other featured artists: Julia Albert and James Pequignot!  The cool thing about this show is that Dan requests that each artist write a new song, specifically for that show.  Our theme is TV.  Whatever that means to us.  It's always fun.
