Last night we rehearsed with Rock Scarlet, doing three of the tunes: “Wayside”, “Riding the Wheel”, and “Ring That Bell” (formerly Oh Yeah!). For these three, we’re going to a local studio to record and mix them, since the feel of the basic tracks weren’t quite captured in the original sessions. This way, they should […]
Seems that everyone who’s heard this one has asked about it, so I’ll tell you the short story of this tune. In September 06 Brian gave me a beautiful amethyst pendant necklace, and that night I had an intense dream. A group of us were searching for the pendant, which was named The Jewel of […]
The Wizard’s Story I was living in LA again, recording with my project at the time called Psychedelic Gypsy. I had a deal with this studio in Hollywood to use their off hours, generally starting after midnight, and often had to wait for the previous session to end. I’d go get some tea at a […]
A few Gremlins in the Machine After wrestling with some technical wiring difficulties, finally it’s time to get back to doing the vocals for these songs! Yay! Seems like the gremlins in the system have been slowing this down a bit, but as the musical project is evolving and changing, it seems obvious that the […]
Between the Worlds I’m sure you’ve felt it too…the feeling as if you live “between the worlds”. As you determine to be ever more genuine in your life, there’s always that pressure to conform to what others expect you to be. It’s often been a challenge being a rock singer and being somewhat (for lack […]
Sometime in the mid-nineties I decided to build a computer dedicated to digital recording. No, I’d never built a computer, and no, I’d never really engineered myself or anything. I just had so much music in me and wanted to be self sufficient (or as self sufficient as an artist can be).
More Thoughts About Life Themes With artists, you can see the evolution of their life theme as well as their craft by experiencing their art in sequence. And with songwriters, you can easily do the same thing by just listening to their tunes.
Yes, this recording has taken way too long, we started it nearly a year ago! Well, we did basic tracks at that time, and then suddenly summer was upon us and we performed a lot of shows. So busy – and you know how time just dances away when you’re having fun. It’s always the […]
A bit of background I am fortunate to have been born into a long line of musicians, singers and intuitives… magick and music on both sides. There were pianos in everyone’s homes, and music all around.Â Grandma was quite psychic, an excellent astrologer, and singer who performed in Vaudeville with her father. She taught me […]
It seems that most of us have a “theme” – something that defines our reality and artistic expressions. And it’s always fascinating to discover a person’s theme: you get it from their music, art, or writings… you can see it running thru their life stories, the things they remember, the stuff they focus on.
