Blue Skies Black – Listen Now!

December 22, 2011

The moment has arrived! I’ve gotten the first single and title track from my upcoming solo album “Blue Skies Black” ready for your listening pleasure. Give it a listen – I’d love to hear any feedback! Drums on this song were performed by the incredible Michael Maenza (from The X’s, among other great bands). There […]

Above The Flood, “The Painted Caravan” Collaboration Project, and BSB update

December 12, 2011

It’s been a busy year. I’ve been involved in a few new musical projects, as well as still playing with The VeLMAs. Here’s what’s new. First off, I’m playing in a new band called Above The Flood.  ATF is a 4-piece hard rock band that’s me (lead guitar/vocals), Matt Shufelt (lead vox/guitar) and Rick Little […]

“Blue Skies Black” – The Album

July 2, 2011

Looking at my last post from almost a year ago here, it seemed like I was just about done with this album then.  And maybe I was.  But in the meantime, I decided I wasn’t happy with the mixes and brought in some fresh ears (and gear) to help take these songs up a few […]

Nearing completion

July 10, 2010

So I’ve been sitting on the mixes for my new album for two weeks or so now, listening for things that still bother me, and getting feedback from some friends.  So far, the feedback has been good! Of course, it would figure that now would be when Avid/Digidesign finally releases a version of Pro Tools […]

It’s coming together…

January 31, 2010

So, the album is coming together nicely.  All of the vocals are sung, and I’ve been working on comping them and picking out the best parts.  I found a great horn player, Bill Scholl, and we got together a while ago and recorded some ideas for the song “Drive Me”.  After listening to the parts […]

What’s new?

October 21, 2009

I was making good progress, recording at a (relatively) good pace through the end of the summer. Vocals are done for 7 of the 12 songs, and that’s more than half. But then it went and got cooler outside and I went and caught a cold. I don’t think it was the pig flu or […]

Update

June 25, 2009

Quick update.  I’ve found myself using Twitter (which in turn updates my Facebook page) a whole lot lately, as it’s easier to write a 140-character “what I’m working on now” update than to write a full blog entry.  And more people tend to read Twitter and Facebook than my blog here.  But to recap, for […]
