Hi, everybody. I hope you are all staying safe during this crazy pandemic. And always remember - Black Lives Matter.
ANNOUNCEMENT: I am so excited and proud to announce that I have a NEW CD about to hit THE STREETS in Summer 2020!!! This is no ordinary Album. It was the most ambitious music project in my life. It all started soon after I released my debut CD, "THERE MUST BE MORE." So, it has been about 4 years in the making with as many as 18 musicians and vocalists along with 4 engineers all done in Los Angeles, CA. While on this journey, I also released my 2nd CD - POURING RAIN, in December 2019, pushing ahead churning out what I consider my best songwriting ever. I consider this work my equivalent effort as that of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper! Ok, I know that's a little self-serving, but, hey, decide for yourselves and let me know what you think when it is released. I'd really appreciate that - seriously. The Album has 19 songs featuring Per Kjeller on lead guitar, recording and mixing, Edoardo Tancredi on drums and percussion, superstar Joie Shettler on background vocals, and world-class musician and performer Marty Rifkin on pedal steel guitar, just to name a few. Renown world-class Cellist, Ginger Murphy, adds her very special talent that is incomparable in every aspect. Ben White of Magnetico, was gracious enough to step in on bass guitar for one track, and wow, that was icing on the cake! Produced by Per Kjeller. Mastered by Gavin Lurssen, Lurssen Mastering, Burbank, CA. Additional engineers and recording done by Andrew Bush, Grandma's Warehouse, Chatsworth, CA, and Tom Weir, Studio City Sound, Studio City, CA.
