I have made music in small clubs and B-stage festivals for over thirty years. My musical education began as a kid listening to FM rock radio stations, and my first influences included The Clash, The Sex Pistols, U2, REM, and The Replacements. Since then, I have never stopped discovering new music, and being a musician has always brought joy to my life.
“So it Goes” is a 15-song album of mostly cover tunes released on November 10, 2021. This is how I would sound if I showed up to play a set at a local dive bar or somebody’s back porch. Click on the picture to hear the album.
Recording, Mixing and Mastering Example:
This is my version of Rockafeller Skank by Fatboy Slim. I programmed the drums with Toontrack and Sony Acid Pro. I played all the other instruments, and did all the vocals. I use Pro Tools, Adobe Audition and Sound Forge to record and mix, and I primarily use Waves plug-ins for detailed mixing and mastering.
I adapted a print story I did about a Marine from a small town in upstate New York, who was killed by a drunk driver on Christmas eve. I also created the music for the podcast.
