Today we wanted to share this work by our member Morgan Giosa after he shared it with us. He formed a new band and they just released an album of original blues/jazz music this year. Here is a link to stream their album:
The album features Morgan on guitar and vocals, Frank Varela on lead and rhythm guitar, Bob Laramie on bass, Morgan’s brother Alex Giosa on drums, and special guests Jeremy Turgeon on trumpet and Deva Varela on harmonica.
Additionally, Morgan brought the same band together (plus special guests Jason LaPierre on guitar and trombone, Abe Puretz on keyboards, and Deva Varela on harmonica) for their debut live performance at Carmine’s Bar Grill & Stage in East Hartford, Connecticut. A video was filmed and you may watch it here (Morgan warns that the audio was recorded with a camcorder and is a bit loud, boomy, and muddy):
Morgan felt this video was important to share, as he suffers from stage fright and social anxiety, so he felt that it could inspire others on the spectrum with musical talent to see that performing live in the conventionally neurotypical setting of a bar is still a possibility if they put their mind and heart into it.

Thank you, Morgan!
