What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : I live in Capitol Hill.
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area: I was a Division I scholarship tennis player at The College of Wlliam & Mary (wife is a tennis pro at a DC-area club) - I had friends at GWU and when I took a bus up to see Tracy Chapman at Lisner Auditorium I fell in love with the city.
First job in DC was at the law firm of Arnold & Porter - my record label, Overtime Records, is named in honor of the many late nights I spent in the studio before I was able to pursue music full-time
Favorite weekend activities: Fridays at 7th Hill Pizza and Sunday night picnics while watching the planes at Gravelly Point with my wife and two boys
Anything else we should know, or you want to share: I love living on The Hill and try to support all of the local businesses as much as I can - holla DC Access, Peregrine Espresso, Capitol Hill Frame & Photo, 7th Hill Pizza!
