New Year, New Projects

My gig shcedule is light in January and February which almost never happens, so I thought it would be cool to put an update about my various musical side projects that I have in the works.

I’m going to be working with a drummer named Oliver Twisted on a cool metal version and video for a cover of a Lady Gaga song.  While I’ve done a ton of straight performance videos I’ve never done anything high concept so I’m really looking forward to that.

I’m also starting to get a recording project off the ground producing R&B and dance tracks using a combination of drum loops and live bass to provide an alternative to all of recent trend of using keyboard bass.  I’m imagining something of a cross between Parliament and Bruno Mars.  We’ll see where it goes, it will be fun anyway.

Moot Davis Gets Two TV Placements

Two songs from Moot Davis‘ album Goin’ In Hot that I played bass on and executive producer on have found some placement success with some pretty heavy shows.

The first placement of the year is for the final season of F/X’s critically acclaimed show Justified, which features one of Moot’s most introspective song, Wanna Go Back.

The second placement of the year comes in the hit ABC show Nashville.  The show’s music director Buddy Miller chose Moot’s duet Hurtin’ For Real which features rising star Nikki Lane.

The long awaited new Adams Wilson CD entitled Prairie Fires has been mastered, the artwork is done, and physical copies are ready for your ears!

The album features all new songs recorded at GCR Audio  in Buffalo, NY.    Engineer and studio magician  Justin Rose did a fantastic job with the sounds and also sourced some unbelievably talented musicians to pour some special sauce on the songs.  I had a blast working with songwriters Adams Eberwein and Matt Riley and wish them continued success!  Check it out,  tell your friends!

Producing New Adams Wilson Album

I was approached by my South Jersey musicians Adams Eberwein and Matt Riley of the band Adams Wilson to produce and record their new as of yet untitled collection of songs.  They chose to work at GCR Audio in Buffalo, NY, home of the Goo Goo Dolls .  Celebrated engineer Justin Rose will be manning the board and making everyone sound great.  We plan on spending a week tracking and getting vocals with final mixes to be done later in the year.
