A few of his songs have been collected and made into albums. His new album, “Honey Pig,” is currently being appreciated by a sparse but industrious group of fans and a small, mid-Atlantic, regional public. He will soon have the best fans in the world, all over the world. He ardently invites you to be one of them.

Jessica Halem was trained in femme queerness at Sarah Lawrence College; earned her chops as a social justice activist working for Bella Abzug; and as a LGBTQ health guru running the Lesbian Community Cancer Project. Jessica Halem performs at every college, Pride, and bathhouse where she can help find the funny in even the toughest of times.
