musicSPARK Festival 2015

I have been invited to play the musicSPARK Festival 2015 in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, September 19, 3pm at the Courthouse Porch Stage. This is a wonderful three day arts festival. I hope if you're local you'll come out and take it in, and if you do, plan to swing by and see us.

"Good News in These Bad Times"

I'll be backing Kevin Michael Thompson as he performs cuts from his latest CD "Good News in These Bad Times" during this CD release party at The Peak United Methodist Church on Friday, May 15th. If you're local, come and join in the fun!

This is some gritty, bluesy, soulful Christian folk rock music. Best I've heard in years. Hope to see you there!

New Recordings for the Savoy Sisters Youtube Channel

This weekend, Andrea Sullivan and will join Tom Blalock and myself to record several songs for Andrea's youtube channel, The Savoy Sisters at https://www.youtube.com/user/TheSavoySisters . Andrea will be trying out for "The Voice" this year, so keep your eyes on her. Almost unfair for one family to have this much talent but I'm glad to play a small part in it!

Female Figures - First Copy Sold!

Just got notification that someone from NYC bought and downloaded the acoustic version of Female Figures - my first copy sold! Thank you to the buyer!

Jimmy Kimmel Show update

The electric version of Female Figures has been recorded and mixed. I began production of the accompanying video Tuesday, Nov 4th shooting close ups of Mara R. Final production is this Saturday, Nov 8th, followed by editing at the studio.

Jimmy Kimmel Show update

Spent Sunday, Oct 19 in the home studio working on cutting tracks for the electric version of "Female Figures (We're Not Just Talking 36-24-36)" with Chris Dez, who's producing the song. So far, so great! Got the vocals, drums and guitar tracks ready to go. Today we capture the acoustic guitar, then bass. This thing is finally under way and moving forward. Stay tuned, it's gonna be a fun ride!

Jimmy Kimmel Show

Been busy lately preparing to enter "Female Figures" into a competition where the winner gets to perform live on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Yeah, it's a long shot but somebody's going to win, so it might as well be me. Re-recording an electric version of "Female Figures" in the home studio, then I'm making plans to produce a video of the song for the competition. Win or tie, it's gonna be a fun project.
