on the other side of midnight

What a winter, so overcoming a few health obstacles we were able to go back into the studio and record 3 new songs laying basic tracks down getting them prepped for the fluff of fiddles, oboes, banjos and mandolins. we have 4 in the queue waiting to wrap up. I am so grateful to friends who record and play for the love of the game. Thank you all. we will have some local Jersey Shore greats playing.

Great News!

I just heard from one of the Jersey Shore's top Irish Fiddlers, we may be able to finish new song this weekend in the analog studio! I am pumped!

A Brighter Day

I have 4 new songs to complete, 2 are 100% Bluegrass,1 is 50% Folk/Bluegrass and 1 New Age. I Just need a violin track on one, the other 3 need full production with Mandolin Banjo Fiddle and Oboe. I have been under the weather for a bit.I just want to get back to the music.
