The Trio has performed at venues/clubs like Bar Next Door (NYC), Bop Stop (Cleveland), Dick's Den (Columbus), Schwartz's Point Jazz & Acoustic Club (Cincinnati) Pausa Art House (Buffalo) Jimmy Cant Dance (Louisville, KY) and many more! Their debut album Mise-en-Scéne was released in 2019 digitally, on CD and with a special release of Vinyl, produced and engineered by Grammy-award winning professionals and funded in part by the Greater Columbus Arts Council.
