New Album Coming Soon
The album "Two: The Orchestral Project" will be released early 2013. All tracks are completed; I am in the mixing and mastering stage now.
"Two: The Orchestral Project" maintains my usual melodic style, but in regards to arrangement, it's quite a bit different from "One". It's all orchestral, no "synthy-sounding" instruments to be found.
Keep your eye on this website for more news as it comes, including your chance to get a the album for $2 - $3 less than retail.
"Do Unto Others" Video
Happy New Year!
Last Year, I created 3 Public Service Announcement videos for a video contest. Each features a song from the "One" Album. I've uploaded the first to the videos page.
PS: No, I didn't win the contest.
New Album Release!
Today, Veteran's Day, I am happy to announce the official release of my new instrumentals-only album, "One". Originally titled "Freedom", I changed it to "One" because it's easier to write and it eliminates any worries about to call future albums. Don't worry, I think you'll find the music more creative than the album title!
The album has gone through many changes since the last news announcement in March. New and improved music kept making its way from my heart and soul through my fingertips on the keyboard and into my recording software. As a result, lots of tracks that I had thought would make the album will have to wait until the next album, which will be titled - yep, you guessed it - "2". A few titles were changed, one - "Amarmente" - at the last moment, when I triple checked and couldn't find it online anywhere. I swear it means "lovingly"; it's as if it dropped off the face of the cybernet earth, simply to confuse and frustrate me. Oh well, the replacement title, "Avec Amour" is easier to pronounce anyway, even though it is French. I knew those so-called useless French classes in high school and college would come in handy - yep, money well spent.
