Wanting

Wanting

Acoustic guitar driven rock song. Since I wrote, performed and produced everything for this song my wife Sherri provided some valuable insight with the vocal arrangement and mix production. A successful first music collaboration for us.

Experimented with a lot of vocal harmonies and background solo guitar voice-ings on this track. There is some subtle iPad Morphwiz synthesizer in the verses to replicate a Pink Floyd inspired atmosphere. You can hear a lot of my early rock influences in this song from the 70's & 80's but hopefully with a little contemporary rock polish too.

This song is about ending poverty and elitism.
Haunted

Haunted

Haunted is a song I co-wrote and recorded with rapper Cliff-Knotes. We set out for a Linkin Park feel with this song mixing beats, rap and guitar driven rock.

The song started from a simple synth riff I was experimenting with using Geo Synth on the iPad. Before we new it we had a full blown song that was far more elaborate and ambitious than we had initially envisioned.

While we have collaborated on music together this is the first song that we combined our individual styles as artists to create something really unique and cool. That led to a 2nd collaboration, unique in its own right, on a song called NO OTHER WAY which you can check out here in the listen section.
The Bond Between Us

The Bond Between Us

Rock ballad with elements of R&B and Smooth Jazz.

The artwork for this song was painted by Linda Mcginn. The picture is called "Eternal Bond"
No Other Way

No Other Way

No Other Way is a distinctive mix of Light Rock and Rap. Another collaboration of my music and vocals with artist Cliff-Knotes providing Rap vocals. Has a bit of a dark ambient feel after the pop intro part.

Yet another project where I used an iPad App based instrument in the mix. There are things you can do with the Morphwiz Synth App that you just can't replicate otherwise, short of purchasing a Haken Continuum for around 5K.(Search Haken Continuum..they are really cool!)
Tone Dive

Tone Dive

This background music is for a future documentary with ocean diving footage, made with iPad Apps MorphWiz and Monolith Loop.
The notes generated by the Monolith Loop are random so I stayed with that unpredictable theme and added a freestyle solo track using the MorhpWiz app. ~The picture was made using the iPad App Flowpaper~
Sometimes

Sometimes

This is an an acoustic guitar song with a lead guitar melody. Wrote this on a rainy day. "Sometimes" its very peaceful to just relax and listen to the sound of the rain.

Ghost Dance Dream

Ghost Dance Dream

Atmospheric classical guitar piece with tribal beat and a freelance acoustic solo track.

Reach Out

Reach Out

Reach Out is a song I wrote many years ago. I decided to record a demo of the song in 2012 because the song pokes fun at the ending of the re-released movie Titanic. Jack is so clever and heroic in saving Rose that his weak effort to save himself is too out of character and is even less believable than the impossible escape he pulls off. Check out the video of the song w/lyrics (and how a morning news show in South Carolina helped inspire the song) in the Moving Pictures section...
With Honor

With Honor

Dramatic soundtrack style orchestral score.
Close To You(Cover)

Close To You(Cover)

Acoustic cover of a Prince Royce song called "Close To You" which is sung half in English & half in Spanish. First cover I have recorded. It's a gift for a friend's wedding for their first dance. They needed a slower version than the original to dance to.
2AM Vegas

2AM Vegas

2AM Vegas has an upbeat nightclub sound. It has some horns, mellow keyboards and funky guitar.
Distorted

Distorted

Distorted is a Dark Filmscore style piece. Scary background music ideal for Horror or Dark Sci-Fi soundtracks.
