And now, here's a re-cap of highlights from 2015...

The holidays always bring a brand-new song (or two) out of me. And on December 17, I offered them as free downloads. Call it my holiday gift to you! Click here and you can still add them all to your playlist.

In September, I released my very first book called,
 "Even More Noise". The fans asked for it, and they got what they asked for! "Noise" was released to the public on 9/22/15. Click here for all the details you'll ever need.

The folks from RockPink and I are excited to offer the Mark Dawson autographed pick necklace. It's so cool! 
All proceeds will benefit RockPink.com of Central Florida. They do some amazing work including helping women in Central Florida with the early detection of breast cancer. And what a blast we had at the annual Bowl-A-Rama on October 3rd. Click here for cool photos from the event. Also, check out RockPink.com to learn more.

I finally started a Blog! All sorts of info from the year - right here. And lately, I've been broadcasting 'live' video on Periscope
The event of the summer, The Happy Together 2015 tour is now complete. Dozens of epic tour pics can be viewed here. And the brand-new "Mrs. Noise's Sexy Sauce" Mexican Rojo flavor has been re-stocked for the holidays! MUY TASTY! Stay tuned for more!
