This weekend I was perusing a few sample books on music production. One of the commonalities was the value of habits and creativity. It seems almost counterintuitive, like creativity should just be spontaneous. But I’ve learned from personal experience that is not the case. Somehow knowing that you’re going to sit down at a certain […]
Well, it’s taken a while, but finally my new track is done. “Turn Up the Night” EDM/pop, uptempo, fun. Mixing this one took longer than usual, because I was trying some new techniques. But I think the end result is worth it. 🙂 Hope you like it! Are you an artist that needs some […]
This year’s Grammy awards! Maybe not the best ever, but in my mind it had some good points. First the tributes: I thought the Lady Gaga David Bowie tribute was fantastic. She was the perfect person to do it- I think they came from the same planet. But her energy was palpable and infused the […]
So I read this article about Mark Ronson and how he became sick because he was stressed and working so much to finish “Uptown Funk,” last year’s collaboration with Bruno Mars. Which is undeniably a fantastic track. The first time I heard it, it blew me away. And it helped me get through what was […]
I was so sad to hear that David Bowie passed away a couple of weeks ago. He was always one of my music heroes. I still love some his early work, especially. “Changes” and “Golden Years” being among my favorites. Then, of course there was his 80s era- “Let’s Dance” and “China Girl.” It was […]
I’m trying to fight the urge to curl up and hibernate till spring. It’s not easy, let me tell you. But one thing that’s inspiring me to get out is to hear some live music! I’m kind of amazed how easy it is to go hear live music. It’s everywhere! At least in the area […]
I’ve been writing a lot of dance music lately, but the funny thing is, I’m totally into listening to rock right now. I go through phases with music- soul, funk, pop, R&B…right now it’s rock. And not alt rock, either. Though I love that and have a playlist I adore. I’m talking testosterone-driven, angst-filled, power-chord, […]
Hi all! It’s been quite a while! Had some spam issues with my site, and it has taken a while to rectify. But now I can catch you up! Of course, I’ve got new songs available, and a couple of dance songs about to be finished. But this track is a single release by a […]
Hi all! A new track is done…actually it’s been done for a bit, I just haven’t gotten around to posting it. Uptempo, fun and dance-y, but not a ‘dance’ song. It’s available for artists to use, or to license, and the backing track is available for use as well. Hope you like!
So that was a great show the other night! Some of the performances were truly stellar. Sam Smith cleaned up and so did Beck. Here are some of my fav highlights of the night!
