AUDIO SAMPLES (More Content Coming Soon)

I have a huge number of different audio and video clips that represent my Guitar Tracks, Song Production, and Custom Composition.  Due to the formatting of this particular site, I am going to have to figure out how to present them without the page being overly cluttered.  Until I do, here are a few examples.

BLOODY WOLVES OF VENICE "Baby"

This is from The Bloody Wolves of Venice EP Revelation also featuring John Driskell Hopkins (Zac Brown Band), Greg Lee (YRR), and Mike Rizzi (5/8, Tony Lewis' Outfield). I couldn't make the video shoot in CA, but all the main electric guitars were recorded in my home studio. Final Mix by Clay Cook. 

DROP DEAD DIVA "The Pie Fell in love with the cake"

Margaret Cho did a fantastic job of miming the guitar in the video, but everything you hear (except for the drums played by Derek Murphy, and the vocal by Miss Cho) was recorded and played by me at my home studio.  This song was featured in the Drop Dead Diva episode "Winning Ugly" and on the accompanying soundtrack album.  Final mix by Matt Still. 

THE BURNED OVER "LADY SILENCE"

Some heavier guitar tones on this one.  This is off the forthcoming full length The Last Great Awakening by The Burned Over.  Drums were played by Beau Brandon, and recorded by Raheem Amlani at Orange Peel Recordings.  Kim Dylla's vocals and all of the other instruments were recorded here in my studio. Final Mix by Kevin Gutierrez.

PETER SEARCY "Tearing"

Peter Searcy wrote, sang, and played cello on this great tune inspired by the 2020 pandemic.  Most of the rest of the track was recorded and played by producer Greg Lee, but I added the lead guitar here in my self-imposed quarantine here at Solitary Confinement Studio.  Mixed by Greg Lee.

JORDAN BARRY "ROLL WITH ME"

Jordan Barry is a super talented up and coming Nashville artist I recently got to work with.   Most of this was recorded at Greg Lee's home studio and John Driskell Hopkins' Brighter Shade Studio.  Hell, I didn't even play any guitar on this one!  I DID however arrange/record all the string parts (using Miroslav Philharmonik 1 & 2) here at Solitary Confinement Studio.  Drums by Mike Rizzi, and mix by Clay Cook.

FENDER ENGAGER BOOST "SHRED DROID"

I recorded all the instruments here in the studio for these insane animations for two new pedals from Fender aimed at Hard Rock/Metal Guitarists.  This is a collaboration between myself, Fender, Hey Beautiful Jerk (video production/animation), Art of Skinner (character design), and Nick Niespodziani.  This one is for the Engager Boost Pedal featuring the SHRED DROID!  Mixed by Mark Dannells.
