My family visited the set of Sprout House today thanks to my good friend and performing partner Chris Palmieri. (He appears as the voice and performer of the ghost in my latest video "Ghost In My House".) Chris has performed with Jimmy Fallon, Dolly Parton, The Wiggles, and many more guests this season. You can catch Sprout House weekdays on Universal Kids!
My new single "Ghost In My House" is out now! This song was produced by John Naclario (My Chemical Romance, Senses Fail) to sound like if Weezer lived in a haunted house. The song features Donny Saraceno on drums and I play a harmonica that was owned by Bobby Darin. The music video was directed by Chris Mariano (from the O>matics) and stars Chris Palmieri (as seen on Sprout House!) as the ghost. You can download it here:
