2012 (almost spring Update)

2012 (almost spring update)

Hey Everyone! Hows the new year so far? Its been a busy one for me! There are a alot of recording projects going on this summer, and I'm excited about everyone of them!!!

First, I have a new project that I'm involved with- Stevie Renner And The Rennegades. steverenner.net/home.html Its a Blues/Rock -N- Roll type band,and it ROCKS! Very reminiscent of the late great Stevie Ray Vaughan. We have a couple of album's worth of material, so right now we are rehearsing and getting all the material tight for recording. We are also putting together the pieces of the studio for recording as well.

Secondly, I'm getting ready to record our debut album with Cannon's North and Adam Tucker @ www.signaturetonerecording.com/ in April. We have been rehearsing,and sorting through all the material that will be on the new cd. Cannon's North also has a new website- www.cannonsnorth.com/ Check it out! There is no release date as of yet.

And lastly, I will be working with an old friend,and former bassist from Countach early days............ Mark "M-Bag" Antinozzi. Mark's project will consist of original material and lots of other great featured musicians, with a percentage being donated to The Make A Wish Foundation of Minnesota. I will have more details on this project in the next couple of days.

I have been very busy with my drum studies and taking class's in music theory,ear training and keyboard lessons @ www.mcnallysmith.edu/ in pursuit of a performance degree in music. I will continue to expand my drum vocabulary and challenge myself as a musician in different areas to help me become a better player and teacher in the future. I have had the pleasure of studying with Marvin Dahlgren,as well as many other great musicians/teachers. Right now I am working out of 4 of Marvin's books, its amazing how much studying can be done with just 1 page of the book!!! I am working to develop and expanded 4 way coordination,working with accents and stick control. It will take some time for me to incorporate some of the ideas into my playing. Eventually they will work themselves in a natural progression.

I'm very grateful to have all these amazing teachers to help guide me in my path.

I will have some photo's with all these great projects, as well as some video and tracks for download.

I will keep you all updated, and thanxs so much for your support!

Talk to you soon............ Brandon
