Us - Finally

I am excited to announce that the “Us” album is available NOW - digitally on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon, Tidal, YouTube and other services (links below). Us can mean many things - A couple. A group of friends. A community. A world. The idea of “Us” was to explore these different levels, and the progression […]

One Of A Kind

At the penultimate Dragonfly open mic, I played a song that I wrote about the place, and how I was feeling about losing it. I called it "This Place is Ours" and I performed it that night on a 12-string acoustic guitar. After a little time away from it, I revised the song's melody and […]

Progress = Slow

Progress is slow on "Us". Nothing bad happening. On the contrary. Recording is in progress and I'm really happy with how the tracks are coming out. The problem is, I keep introducing new songs into the cycle. It's a good problem to have for sure, but I have to figure out a way to focus […]

Don't Say You're Sorry

I suppose I will continue to reveal more songs as I finish them. I like getting stuff out there. The "Us" material is sounding great, and I can't wait to get it all done and share it. This one is called "Don't Say You're Sorry". Apparently, there's many other songs with the same title, but […]

Left Wondering

I've released a new song, "Left Wondering", an introspective take on getting older, and feeling irrelevant and invisible. Following the rapid fire pace of the Singles Collection, I've been working steadily on "Us", an album project of thematically linked songs. This approach to writing is new to me, and is taking a bit longer (though […]

State of the Artist

I've always been into home recording. I have nothing against recording studios, but I've always been fascinated with the recording process and I also like to endlessly tinker with my songs/mixes. So, home recording has been my chosen method for a long time. Prior to 2004 or so, I was working with a Fostex 8-track […]

Discussion Points

I'm going to write extensively about many music things here. Recording and production techniques, music I like, and lots more. To start with, I will mention that I use Logic Pro X on a Mac Pro connected to a Slate Raven touchscreen. It's been a long road from bouncing back and forth between two cassette […]
