I am a HUGE fan of the USA Network show Burn Notice. Our good friend and collaborator Ben Watkins has been a writer/producer on the show for several years, and made a big push to get some of my music on the show before it goes off the air.
Listen for my song “Beautiful” on episode 710 entitled “Things Unseen” that airs tonight – Thursday August 15th at 9pm/8c on USA Network. “Beautiful” was on my album SOULvival and was dedicated to my oldest daughter Lily.
Burn Notice is in its final season, and down to its final 4 episodes and if you haven’t seen the show, it’s a lot of fun. It’s been called “addictive” and one of the “best shows on tv.” You can watch past episodes on itunes and on amazon, or tune in on Thursday night at 9pm to watch it LIVE! Tune in and Share this!
I’m doing an unplugged set this Thursday evening August 12th at the House Of Blues on the Sunset Strip. Performing with me will be Danny Formica on acoustic and Angela Songbird on vocals.

The House Of Blues is located at 8430 Sunset Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90069. Click here for event details and directions.
I will have SOULvivals for sale and we MAY even take some of your requests. Showtime is 8:45 sharp. See you there!
Here‘s a link to a great article/review of SOULvival in The Sacramento Observer. The interview was picked up from the Lana Wilson-Combs’ review of the album that ran on her site N2 Entertainment.net. Here’s a shot of the Calendar section cover that I took from my mobile phone.

Catch a musical breath of fresh air this Thursday June 24th at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza in the Sears court. I will be celebrating the release of my debut album SOULvival with a FREE concert featuring original music and an incredible live band!
Don’t miss this encore performance as part of the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza Summer Concert Series! The show back in January was off-the-hook. The BHCP Live Concert Series features some of LA’s hottest local talent and is a joyous celebration of Black Music Month. Come on out, let the music move you, pick up a CD and enjoy some positive musical vibrations.
PapaLee features Stevo Théard on drums, Michael Kennedy on bass, Dan Formica on guitar and Hornlicious (Bijon Watson and Louis Van Taylor). Also featured will be amazing vocalist Angela Songbird.
