NYC & Nashville

Loud to silent, and back to loud again…in the silence. Writing some great songs with some great people. Nashville reminds me of New England. Oh, and it’s hot here.  

Prince: Big Loss

Huge loss in the art world. Very upsetting to see another one down due to self medicating.  He was the true soundtrack to so many. I got the chance to see him do a private show at a restaurant, in which he proceeded to tear through a full Hendrix set. The restaurant caught fire that […]

You decide…

As always, happy to score the Center for Reproductive Rights Gala at MOMA in NYC. Everyone should be entitled to choose!

Them kids today.

Rolls-Royce Music Box is kicking ass with a tall tower of stellar songs by some serious talent. Them kids today…

Old Skool.

Played an electronic dumbset today, I mean drumset. Fun.

NYC

Saw a peacock on the Upper West Side last week. Yes I did.

The Voice

Check out Matt McAndrew and special guests on The Voice tonight 04.27.15.

Nashville

Nashville was fantastic. Lots of writing and recording. People really love music there.

Tennessee

Franklin, Tennessee is beautiful. Went to Puckett’s for some BBQ. Delectable, though I think turnip greens are an acquired taste, a bit strange for a New England-California palate.

Musique

Lots of music as of late. Did a fantastic song with the talented Matt McAndrew. What a Voice.

Tramayne Tirrell: Video & Single Drop

Excited about this. Written and produced by moi. Very cool video too.   Tramayne Tirrell Single & Video Drop: thorns: http://youtu.be/umOoeWmL9sk Album in 2015:        

LA, Mexico, and Nashville

Great to be in LA and Mexico. Did a very cool pilot with Jude.  Lots of music and pensive moments. Wrote a nice song with the talented Jacq Becker. Another song I wrote is on the ABC hit show Nashville. Headed for the east coast where I hear it’s 84 degrees. Mark Twain said, “If […]

Car Washes

Do people on the east coast wait in line for hours for a car wash? Speaking of cars, a song I wrote is in a Volkswagen commercial in Norway. That’s kind of like being “big in Japan.” Speaking of Scandinavia, if you haven’t tried Swedish Falk Salt, go to your nearest IKEA. And after that, […]

Musique

Lots of it. Songs.  And check out these Rolls-Royce Music Box artists on MTV’s Ex and the Why: Depresso Promis Sarah Aili Tasha Layton LA Mafia vs Stack X DJ Babyboi AM Light

NYC-MA

Always nice to escape Manhattan and seek refuge in beautiful North Shore of Massachusetts with my girlfriend. It’s much like the British countryside; hills dotted with houses, the vast ocean, sprawling marsh, sometimes grey, tall trees, the rarity of the sun, rain, wildlife including rabbits, deer, polecats, squirrels, turtles, swans, and an array of colorful singing […]

NYC…Again. SIR & T.T.

Amazing sessions with She’s Ryan (SIR) and Slimmy Neutron at HVLO HALO NYC.   Tramayne Tirrell killing it in the studio and on stage. Watch for performances around Los Angeles.

East Coast.

Strange happenings here on the east. Logged 80k miles this past year in flight travel; all as I try to stay out of airports. In Boston now. A beautiful sadness (this oxymoron=melancholia) occurs. Snow, dark skies, wet streets,  silence, a cacophony inside a beating heart.  

NYCNYCNYCNYCNYCNYCNYCNYCNYCNYCNYC

NYC for a week of writing & producing. Lots of good stuff for 2014.  Until next month…stay warm. Wrapped up steller new song “Thorns” with Tramayne Tirrell. 2014. T.T. Too many airplanes, too many airports, no more, no mas. Vacation time. Off to Mexico. Sending some sun from Mexico to everyone back east. Good thing […]

ABC’s Back in the Game/Angel Transmission

Yes, for fans of ABC’s “Back in the Game,” you did hear “Angel Transmission.” I was 30k feet in the air, and did not hear it, though did wave to some passing angels I saw through the window. It was dark. I saw flowing white fabric and a trumpet or two.

The Fox Must Pay/Adidas

Check out Trash Junk’s Remix of the Fox Must Pay’s Xtraordinary Things in Adidas’ Smart Run campaign.

Autumn 2013

Lots of great writing sessions happening. Keep your ears out in 2014. Also, proud to have scored the Center for Reproductive Right’s 2013 campaign. NYC next week….  

NYC: Fabulous as Ever

2 Songs with the madness that is She’s Ryan. A serious force. Big Bombs in 2014 with this girl. HVLO NYC rain is tantamount to 1001 red roses strewed across a crystalline beach.

July=Heat

In Boston & NYC. Heatwave; in the studio too. New Tramayne Tirrell song “Let Down” & new song with the talented Andreah Ernandez “Quedate Me Recuerdo.” Sarah Aili stomped it in Nashville. There are 2 SEH co-writes on her new record. A serious voice indeed.

Summer 2013

Lots of happenings. Wrote a great song with Sheppard Solomon and Tramayne Tirrell with a secret title. And another with Jude called “Battery.”  E3 is here, The Fox Must Pay are back in the studio with some late summer singles planned, and the air is getting hot. From under the sun in L.A., stay cool.

Why? Because Luke Edgemon is sure to rock. I haven’t seen The Voice, but Luke and I did a fab song a while back.  And the boy can sing!

Tramayne Tirrell

In studio with Tramayne Tirrell. Unbelievable talent. Lots of sessions with this young Floridian. Expect to hear him in 2014.

Taylor Collie

The bar has been raised. 15-year old Taylor Collie is amazing. Another old soul. Lots of old souls in my life, and elders too. See her iphone video here…
