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.

I am a musician, producer and entrepreneur. I have played electric bass, upright bass and guitar for touring act Moot Davis for the past 4 years. I also work as a producer, most recently for a project called Adams Wilson.

In 2012 we started Crow Town Records as a vehicle for world class songwriters in the Americana, Country, Roots Rock genres. Check out http://www.crowtownrecords.com for more information.

I also believe strongly in giving back wherever I can. In 2012 I started putting on a BBQ fundraiser for musicians in the South Jersey area called BomberJam. To date we’ve raised over $10,000 for Brain Tumor Research.
