– Work on the new JHB albums is finally gaining a lot of ground (one positive out of being shuttered at home for Covid-19). I’m thick in the mixing process on well over 30 songs. This huge endeavor will result in 3 thematically different albums (yeah, I’ve been putting this off wayyyy too long). The albums will most likely be released one every three months or so, starting this summer, after the mastering sessions. More info soon!
– I’ve created a new ART page on this website where you can check out some of my original artwork that I’ve been working on. Check it out HERE. Thanks for looking!
– Earlier this year I released an archival album of my pet project, DARK SKY ORDINANCE. The tracks were recorded over 30 years ago and they are very dear to my heart. DSO will be producing some new material as well, but I thought it only seemed right to release these tracks that have inspired me to diverge and ride this different musical wave from time to time. You can listen to it now HERE. I hope you enjoy!
– Here’s a great idea…after Covid-19 passes, invite me to come to your home for a House Concert and enjoy an intimate evening of my music for you and your guests. I bring my songs and sound system, you provide your guests…voila…instant fun!
