I wrote a song about a month ago called “The Light of New York City” about my long journey toward finally moving to NYC, and in it I refer to New York as “the city of tragedies and miracles.”
It’s one of these miracles that after living here for only five months I got an opportunity to play the song at City Winery, one of the nicest music venues in NYC, with Mike Viola, an accomplished musician/songwriter/producer who is on tour with Rachel Yamagata, the show’s headliner.
And during Hanukkah, a holiday celebrating, well, miracles!
