Just got back from Nashville, 4 days of writing with Leland Grant, Will Robinson and Kimberly Kelly plus a fantastic dinner with the legendary Sharon Vaughn. More to come on this stuff, something is happening I’ll be able to talk about soon.
Sorry, been too busy working to post about how busy I am…. Currently working on mixing the new Handsome Midnight
album (kind of 90’s flavored dude indie rock), mixing the new Firebell album (Pat Metheny style jazz trio), mixing the Barbaro
EP (bluegrass with great songwriting and vocals) and….. mixing the new Communist Daughter record too!!!! Plus just starting
to track Davina & The Vagabonds (indescribably delicious sexy jump blues and vintage r&b) new record, writing and recording
with Jordan Holm (current indie pop/rock), recording with Alex Kiel (great country singer), just co-wrote the new single for Jesse
Larson (the Voice) with John Fields, recording 2 songs with Step Rockets (cool indie rock), along with a couple of other things….
So if you don’t hear from me that’s why, I’m not sitting around eating bonbons I’m busier than…. fill in vulgar metaphor here.
A couple of years back I produced a version of Elton’s “Madman Across The Water,” for Alison Scott. Just found out it will be in the season premier of #RayDonovan on Showtime. It airs August 6th at 9pm. Special thanks to the Laurel String Quartet for playing this challenging arrangement on it, they really nailed it. Great Peter Anderson drum track too.
My first punk rock band, shot live in 1981…. holy crap. Me on guitar, Steve Skibbe on bass, Mike Lasley on guitar, Shawn Micheau on vocals and Rick Ziegler on drums.
