Now that we’ve all come up for air after COVID, things couldn’t be busier. I’m out on the road again playing Symphonic rock shows, and have been busy in my studio co-writing, producing, and engineering a project by Soul singer Dan McLean Jr. Stay tuned for more details on the album coming out this fall.
My first solo album “Monarch Girl” is now available as CD & download. It’s split into two parts. The first half is a mix of pop & rock with explosive grooves & sweet vocals. The second half highlights diverse acoustic playing and composing. Special guests include Randy Cooke (Ringo Starr, Smashmouth), Paul DeLong (Kim Mitchell, Rik Emmett), Don Breithaupt (Monkey House), Rik Emmett, Steve Skingley, David Blamires (Pat Metheny) , Kathryn Rose and Rique Franks.
It’s available NOW at Maple Music & iTunes, as well as at shows and at pretty well every other pay-to-download store.
By the way, on “Monarch Girl”s first day of pre-sale, it reached #1 at Maple Music!
