The Kat’s out of the bag...I’m beyond excited to announce that my debut EP, “Get Grüvy” will be released on June 26th, on all digital platforms and in physical CD format!
“Get Grüvy” consists of 4 original compositions: “No Wake Zone,” “Out of Sight, Out of Mind,” “Telepathy,” and “Somewhere Warmer.” Many thanks to Michael Peterson of Harvest Moon Studios for the studio recordings, Alex Anderson of Tree of Life Studio for an incredible mixing and mastering job, and to Sean de Burca for his creative direction on the album cover artwork and design - bringing the "Grüvy Kat" concept to life!
Pre-orders for physical CDs and digital copies of “Get Grüvy” are now LIVE on my website and Bandcamp page. Digital pre-orders are also live on iTunes. I will be donating all proceeds from this EP to benefit the UC Davis Medical Center COVID-19 Support Fund.

My set from the 2nd Fingerstyle Hub Festival on April 11, 2020. Thanks to everyone who tuned in, and shoutout to Tommy Loose and Jon Hart for organizing this epic event and uniting us as one big fingerstyle community.
The Fretmonkey Women of Fingerstyle Concert at the Anaheim House of Blues was a success! Sharing the stage with the most legendary female guitarists in modern fingerstyle guitar, Kaki King, Muriel Anderson, Christie Lenee, Vicki Genfan, and many more, is definitely the biggest highlight of my music career thus far. It was an honor to be a part of such an iconic and historic event. Easily the best night ever and would love to do it all over again. Huge thanks to Alicia Cotabish and everyone at Fretmonkey Records for all their hard work in making this possible.
It’s a wrap - NAMM 2020 is in the books! It’s been the most eventful one yet. I got to perform at the Furch Guitars, Mayson Guitars, and Music Area Cases booths, stay in a house with the finest fingerstyle players from all over the world, and share the stage with my longtime heroes at the Anaheim House of Blues. Can’t wait until next year!
New video up on YouTube! "Rushing" by Janet Noguera featuring myself and Omar Contreras LIVE from our Black Friday show at The Monkey House in Berkeley, CA on 112919.
