Studio FB Live Session 021: The Ghost and the Guide

After a few months of these Studio FB Live Sessions, I decided it was time to try something different for this one. I’ve loved creating instrumental tracks live each week but it was time to bring in reinforcements. For this session I asked my buddy John Staub to join me…or maybe he asked to join […]

Studio FB Live Session 020: Build

New Year Resolutions…a love-hate relationship. In years past, when crossing over into a new year I would set as many resolutions as I could. No matter how hard I tried I quickly became part of the 80% who quit them all before February. Last year I decided to try something different and chose a guiding word […]

Studio FB Live Session 019: micro KORG Rebirth

When I was in college I picked up a cutting-edge new synthesizer called the Micro Korg. This thing was so was fun to mess around with. The sounds it produced was like nothing I knew as a guitar player. Arpegiators, synth leads, full drum loops were right there at the click of the keyboard. Although it was […]

I recently had the wonderful opportunity to team up with my good buddy John Staub to work on a track we are calling Home. It was a grand experiment because John and I had never worked together before, but we decided to try it […]

Studio FB Live Session 015: The Beginning

It happened. I released it. My debut album The Beginning officially launched on Friday, November 3rd at the Fountain Square Brewery. Wow…I’m honestly speechless. This album took over 7 years and lots of fights with self-doubt to complete. I can’t say thank you enough to everyone who helped me make this happen, plus everyone who […]
