Just recently re-did the website!! As more and more content comes your way, I truly want this site to be the place you can go to hear new material, get linked into videos, updates, news, photos, etc. What do you think of the site? I've included some photography of mine in the header images as well...it has been fun to start using all those pictures around the design of the site/music.
There are a lot of updates on the music front...have been in the studio quite a bit. I am working on a few different projects now. Some of it is working out new stuff, some of it is re-working older un-released acoustic sessions material. I will surely keep you all posted as things become completed and ready for you all to hear!!
I also just picked up a Martin 00-15 that sounds dreamy. I have wanted one of these for a long time and the situation presented itself. I have a feeling that this beauty has so many songs inside just waiting to be heard. First moments playing around with it already provided a really enjoyable melody. I am very excited to have this new member of the acoustic family!!
Stay tuned for new project updates and shows!
Talk to you soon,
Recording the Balance Acoustic Sessions EP was such a great time. Having cello accompaniment was a really unique experience for me and I think it adds a nice flavor to the songs. Like peachy paterno ice cream, mmm mmm good. It was awesome to get to hang out and play music with my friend Debi, who worked hard to learn the songs, perform, and record. She also really opened the door for the opportunity at Lehigh's recording studio, which was a great way to both give and receive support with a music project. Thanks to Bill Holmes and his recording students for having us! And thanks to Debi for such a fun project! I hope you enjoy the featured songs in a more natural acoustic form with the beauty of a cello carrying some creative melodies. The songs themselves will be available soon, with artwork ta boot! More updates soon. Take care.
So just as my journey to Southern California begins, my Pennsylvania journey comes to a close...for now. Who knows where any of us will end up? But what I do know is that I have played my last show at Godfrey Daniel's for a while...unless I happen to be back in town visiting (which is quite possible in the future). Godfrey's is such a cool venue, always showcasing interesting music, and providing an atmosphere unlike most any other. Thanks for some good times, good tunes, and good vibes.
My friend and wonderful cellist, Debi and I went off to the studio to record some acoustic tracks of select songs off the Balance EP. We laid down some tracks in an afternoon session that yielded some pretty cool results. These recordings will definitely have a raw, acoustic, intimate feel. Just guitar, cello and lead vocals going on this time. The songs are being prepared for release..but in the meantime, check out the YouTube channel for some video previews of the songs! Pictures of the session can be seen in the photos section of the website..check em out. Talk to you soon.
A new side project featuring acoustic guitars, violin and cello has been in the works for a short time now. The blend of instruments has been a lot of fun to play with. The recordings turned out really neat and they should be available soon! Stay tuned for updates!
Pursuing passions and appreciating the joys and blessings of life. I have been given so much, I'd like to use music as an avenue to give back.
