Check out the interview that Andrew Vaughn did on the American Music Channel
. The only thing that's changed since the article is the kind of CD I'm going to be releasing. I've been working on 2 CD's simultaneously, 1 acoustic based and 1 full band. I'm going to release the full band CD first. The acoustic project will be put on hold for awhile, when it is released it'll feature all of my radio hits and a few new tunes. I'm… Continue

Here's the flip side to my last post: There's a downside to articulation. If you "grab" your words too strongly, you will be perceived as:
* An amateur
* Insincere (I think it was Shakespeare who wrote "Me thinks he protesteth too much")
Truly over-pronounced words will also cause tongue and jaw tension. You don't want that because it limits your control, tone and range. That's a good way to know your diction has crossed the line.
Here are some… Continue

I'm excited. I am going to play drums with the support band for this spring's production of "Always, Patsy Cline" at the Ryman Auditorium. It's a repeat performance for me. I worked the same play at the Ryman way back in 1995. Mandy Barnett and Tere Myers are coming back to reprise the original. Mandy has a remarkable voice of her own but when she emulates Patsy, it's spooky. Tere is a sharp as a tack actress who is also a lawyer based in Houston. Anyway it's a really entertaining event and… Continue

I've been a bit out of touch lately. I am sorry for that. I am not sure if it's the kids, the new president, the writing appointments that keep canceling, the fact that football season is over or the anticipation of Mardi Gras. I'm sure that I could pull out a few more excuses but I figured that 4 or 5 would do. I am going to make a real effort to stay on my game a bit more now that we're six weeks into the new year! Oh yes...it's flying by!
The thing is, I've been doing a ton of… Continue

One of my pet peeves is listening to a song and not being able to tell what the heck it's saying.
I know some people will say they are only into the music and don't care about or listen to lyrics. I remember when my son was little, he used that rationale to protest my veto of music with inappropriate lyrics. (No, hehehe, it didn't work.) But in reality, most people are drawn to a song and to a singer whose message is clear.
What is articulation? A simple definition, for… Continue

in the beginning, there was darkness. a void.
and from chaos, everything was created.
at least that's how the greeks saw it.
in the earliest of myths,
chaos gave birth to...
eros to the greeks.
cupid to the romans.
the most beautiful of all gods.
it was later that the myth would evolve further, with eros reborn as the child of aphrodite and ares. no surprise that the… Continue

Everyone, I just got an email last night with the sad news, that keyboardist, NMP member, Gary Butler passed away a couple of days ago. I'm sure many of you knew Gary. When I get more details, I will pass them along.
My condolences go out to his friends and family.

It looks like I'll be back in LA from May 14 - 24, but I'm not completely booked while I'm there. Since I'll have time during the days (and some evenings) please keep me in mind should you hear of sessions or gigs. For that matter, keep me in mind if you know of a great coffee shop in Hollywood. Otherwise, I'll be sitting in the hotel bored to tears....

I'm not sure how many of you here on NMP paid attention or read the announcement yesterday of an approved merger agreement between two of our industry goliaths (Live Nation & Ticketmaster), but if you didn't....I encourage you to do so. Here is the press release as it ran on Billboard's website yesterday:… Continue

I have a strong desire to play in music sessions in Nashville and beyond.
I'm totally capable of reading charts and working in the studio as I've done much of this already.
I'm looking at getting in the bigger circle of session musicians.
Should I join the AFM?
Who should begin to get connected with?
Can you recommend me as a session guitarist for a major artist?

I love using Audacity for dropping ideas and quick recording, does anyone know of a plug in or stand alone mixer either open source or cheap, that will allow you to tweak EQ, Pan, and effects loops per track with Audacity? Something that would allow fades, etc? If so, please post links! Thanks!
