Tell us about “Jump In” How was the album born and what was your inspiration for the song?

“Basically, I signed with Sony the Orchard right at the start of the pandemic, so it was weird timing. My tours were all postponed, even my concerts, so all of my team who are musicians, we couldn’t not play live and we were going crazy and we just needed this creative outlet. I feel like we put all of our creative energy into this record because that’s what we’ve been doing through the whole pandemic, doing the ‘Jump In’ album. Lots of positive energy songs, I had written them but I think they almost took on a whole new dimension because of what was going on.”

You have an amazing cast on this album which includes guest appearances from G. Love (2020 Grammy nominee), Mike Schmid (The Chainsmokers, Miley Cyrus), Tommy Kessler (Blondie), Rob Hyman (The Hooters), Joel Hoekstra ( Whitesnake, Cher, TSO), Constantine Maroulis (American Idol), Shawn Pelton (Bruce Springsteen, Sheryl Crow), Peter Mayer (Jimmy Buffett), Doyle Grisham (Kenny Rogers, George Jones, Jimmy Buffett) and Bobby Bandiera (Bon Jovi) . The production was directed by Bouchelle, with Stephen DeAcutis (Corey Glover, Cyndi Lauper), Hal B. Selzer (Joan Jett & The Blackhearts), Ed Stasium (Pretenders, Talking Heads) and Earl Cohen (Lady Gaga). How did you feel working with all these big names?

It was cool because some songs, we really had a certain person in mind and luckily a lot of times they’ll be available to us, which is great, but because not everyone was on tour, they were like, ‘ I can do it for you ‘this week’.

The Ultimate Guide to New Jersey Breweries

So what is a “brasserie”?

According to Section of Thompson’s Island on the differences between a craft brewery, a microbrewery, a craft brewery and a gastropub, it is written:

“A craft brewery is a hybrid between a restaurant and a brewery. It sells at least 25% of its beer on site in combination with extensive catering services. In a craft brewery, beer is primarily brewed for sale to the inside the restaurant or bar. Where legally permitted, breweries may sell beer to take-out or distribute it to certain off-site destinations.”

New Jersey has tons of Brewpubs, some of which have been around for years and some that just opened last year.
