Nice news comes from a friend of mine from the ACT UP and Treatment Action Group days. Dudley Saunders is a singer and writer whose music was described by one reviewer this way: “think Jeff Buckley meets Joni Mitchell.”

His first music video is about addiction and recovery (a subject I can certainly relate to), and is called The Undoing (Every Day). Check it out...

Dudley also has a great website -- -- with more info about his life and work, samples of his music, and an expressive blog.

I saw him perform last year at the Hotel Fauchere in Milford, PA, and thoroughly enjoyed it. So here’s my shout out to Dudley -- it was great seeing you after all these years. You looked great. Congrats on the new music video!
