Summer 2016!

Summer 2016!

Well, so far we’ve a big start to the summer. I haven’t updated the site in a while, so there’s lots to talk about!

I am now the Composer for a new show called “Palisades Justice!” It’s a parody cop show (much in the vein of NYPD Blue), but set in the Pacific Palisades. The show is produced by Cinterra Pictures. I am very excited to be working as the shows composer, and having a blast writing and recording the tracks! For more info click the link:

The Mudbug Brass Band ( http://www.mudbugbrass.com/ ) has been tearing LA up! We’ve recently performed at Make Music Pasadena, and will be performing at the Skirball Museum here in LA on July 16, 2016 (daytime show). We’ve also performed at the grand re-opening of the newly restored Highland Park Bowl! In addition to all of this, we’ve put out a video and single for our track “Are You With Me?” Have a look:

We’ve also performed “Li’l Liza Jane” on Kitchen Table Blues, with The Rev. Shawn Amos!

I’ve also mixed an album for LA Based, Batmaker. I also played a few performances with the band, as well as appeared in the band’s video for the single, “Time to Go.” Have a look at the finished  video here! Produced by Breakwater Studios! They did great work!

I’ve also be getting some cool work done with other productions. Here’s a spot I did for Director Matthew Reichnman for AIGA’s Re-Ignite campaign. Click to watch it on Vimeo!

After recording with guitar goddess, Sylvia Juncosa (SWA, Leaving Trains, To Damascus, The Nymphs), her album, “Wanna Gotta” was released this in early 2016! Have a listen to one of the tracks I performed on, “Creeper.” The drumming duties were handled my me and the legendary drum wizard, Joe Berardi.

I’ve also recorded on Santina Giordano’s fantastic album, “Fantasy Park.” Recorded by the always amazing Barry Conley (Black Label Society, Strung Out, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Sugar Ray, Bullet Boys, John Mayall), the album is terrific! Here’s her song, “I’m Not Disney” for your listening pleasure!

I will post more news soon! Thanks for stopping by!
