I have just finished recording & mxing my solo debut. The album tentatively titled "Nocturnal" is comprised of 10 of my compositions that feature a talented and eclectic group of musicians along with what I would like to think is my own approach to guitar playing and production. The disc will be on the the Abstract Logix Label and is slated for a 2011 release. I am amped to be with Abstract Logix!
I have always been an album orientated listener, I tend to forgo playlists and things like random shuffle on ipod's all together. I am drawn to artists that create narratives with their music, records that play from first track to the last with a continuing purpose and overall vibe. That is what I was going for with "Nocturnal" trying to take those listening on a ride. There is plenty of diversity on this record, but I believe I have been able to create a continuity and flow to the music that hopefully captivates the listener. I am honored to have each of the musicians on this disc involved with the project. I was consistently humbled by their creativity, dedication and generosity. Y'all are motherfuckers
