Coming up in December 2020:

Uton is participating in Blue Christmas, a holiday concert to be put up virtually at The Tank in NYC, brainchild of Miriam Pultro.

September 2020

Uton arranged the Bill Withers classic Lean on Me a cappella for the Lone Sailor Awards, a US Navy Memorial event honoring distinguished heroes from their ranks, working with stars and legends such as Aloe Blacc, Graham Nash of CSNY, and Ray Parker, Jr. In addition, he also played piano and bass for the special tribute. It was an absolute honor.

Celebrated the holiday in style again! Uton had the honor of participating in Soul in Your Stocking at the Joe's Pub with R&B legend Jimmy Guilford AND Jersey City's Mayor's Holiday Ball spearheaded by Steven Fulop at the historic Loews Theater. Happy Holidays!

Written in the trenches of the Civil Rights Movement, Sam Cooke's timeless classic speaks to all eras of struggle. Uton arranged an acappella version of the song for his brother Azudi's 54 Below debut. With Azudi on lead vocals and featuring Uton and Broadway's Erica Dorfler and Lulu Fall. Until change.
