SOUNDTRACK TO VEGAS: Pillowtalk by Zayn Immediately after our performance we hit the road back to Dallas to catch our flight to Las Vegas.

Imagine a large black SUV pulling up to your door fully clad with a small crew of artists and business minds alike, ready to lug you and the VERY small amount of things you have on the musical journey of a lifetime. Those of you how know me, know that around 11:30 pm, I start to near the “past my bed-time” point (not the traditional rockstar, but what can I say? I guess all of those years of Alessandro Costantini ‘very calmly’ reminding me I should go home and rest my voice after a rehearsals for YES Theatre stuck in my head). On this......
