Remembering Michael Jackson 

Today is the 10th anniversary of the passing of the "King of Pop," Michael Jackson. I loved Michael and had the amazing opportunity to meet him twice. I mourn the loss of a great American artist and humanitarian. 

When I think of Michael Jackson, I don't only think about arguably the greatest entertainer who has ever lived. I also think about the humanitarian who contributed an estimated $300 million dollars to charities, and who, when on tour, would often visit as many children's hospitals as he gave performances. Michael's commitment to people and the planet, as well as his music, inspire me to this day. 

If you want to be a little sad, but also smile, please take a look at this live in studio performance from me 10 years ago:

"Tweetin' Donald" Music Video Update 

The "Tweetin' Donald" music video short is 95% complete, and it looks fantastic.

The track is blistering, with amazing guitar work, and I'm really happy with the vocals as well. Our puppeteers did the most fantastic job, and the song and video really sparkle! The director, Ben Bogard, and I are working on the final cut and release date! More updates very soon! It is not too late to contribute and help produce this project. If you would like to be a backer, or have a question about this, please reply to this email me and say "I want to help make 'Tweetin' Donald' a reality!" I promise you... THE BEST IS YET TO COME!

This with Love! JPB

"Tweetin' Donald" - Making Music Videos Great Again 

I'm very excited to share with you my newest project: "Tweetin' Donald" It’s a parody of the song "Rockin' Robin" that takes a comedic yet poignant look at our time so far with 45...with puppets! 

The puppets are currently in production, the song is sounding great, the shoot is scheduled, and we have a fantastic creative team.

Autumn Update 

Dear Fans!

I appreciate all your support of my music and work, whether it's sharing my Chanukah video, LIKEing my Facebook page, or commenting on one of my youtube videos.

Right now, I continue to work on co-writing a new musical. It's fun, funny, edgy, a bit corny, and I hope you'll love it!

I'm also working on a marriage equality anthem and music video, to be released in 2016!

You'll definitely be hearing more from me in the future. "You ain't seen nothing yet!"

"Sacred" - YouTube - Live Performance 

I have fans all over the world, but I haven't performed all over the world...yet! One of the things that is amazing about the internet is that we can reach people so far away. With Valentine's Day approaching here in the US, I wanted to share with my fans a live performance from Los Angeles of my song "Sacred." It's a stripped down version, just a keyboard, a voice and a guitar. I hope you really like it, and treasure your loved ones, this Valentine's Day, and always!
 

"I will never let anyone hurt you
I will forever care
Because you are everything I’ve ever wanted
And you’re sacred to me."
