Wait for It….

Hi all, long time no talk.  I wanted to let you know that I actually HAVE been working, even though I haven’t released anything lately.  It turns out that everything I’ve been working on for the past year (maybe 5 or 6 songs, along with a new video!) will be released at once in the […]

Beauty Amidst Strife

Hello all! It’s been a while, and for those that happen to care, I apologize. Life has been… trying lately for various reasons. Family health issues, work related stress, it’s all been pretty horrifying I must say. That said, the light at the end of the tunnel is shining brightly right now, and my lovely […]

Standing on the Shoulders of Giants…

I’ve been feeling like this quite a bit lately. First, let’s not kid ourselves. We humans didn’t INVENT the major chord. That comes from something bigger than us.

New iTunes release coming soon!

While I’m still deciding what exactly to do with “Sleep Little Baby” (I may have it remastered before I make it widely available), I’m near completion of another faux-choral piece composed by Morten Lauridsen.  It’s a Christmas song called “O Magnum Mysterium” –from the Latin text.  It sounds pretty good if I do say so […]

Sleep Little Baby–The Engineer Vs. the Vocalist

THE ENGINEER’S STORY I often read both amateur and self-proclaimed pro “producers” alike lamenting the task of having to work with vocalists. “They’re a pain in the ass,” I read.  “Frickin’ Prima Donnas!” they say.  “Good ones are hard to find,” I also hear.  As the recording engineer and producer for a new track by […]
